Colie CVT I know Rei. He is sprouting up on me. He is going to be a big boy. I need to ask how big his father is. His mom looks about Leia size, but he's basically Leia size now!

Myles is the only real posing dog out of mine lol. Leia you get a few seconds before he moves and Doyle it's more a nanosecond right now. Sitting still is super boring when there are things to sniff and other dogs to play with. Keeps it interesting!

Shade I love the story the pictures tell, sometimes it's the ones that don't turn out perfectly that have more value to them

Colie CVT Leia is pretty flashy. She was blocking the boys too because she's a diva like that lol.

It actually isn't really hard at all! Myles and Leia both have very good recalls and normally stay around me when we are out hiking. Doyle has picked it up from the two of them, and if he doesn't know where I am, he sticks close to Myles and Leia. I'm also used to hiking with all kinds of dogs, since my roommate has 4 others and we often have boarding dogs that we take out. The recall is important, but when you have a group there's kind of a pack mentality that seems to spring up.

Also helps both my shepherds were kind of clingy too. Leia has to be sure I am coming and when we get near the car, oh you do not get to even think of leaving her behind lol. Not that I ever have, but she's VERY certain it won't happen. Doyle is similar. He figured out what car is mine and he will start climbing the tailgate til I load them up.

Zeeva Yes, Myles is all smiles! I was so hooked on your shep I didn't even notice. All beautiful!

How do you manage 3 pups off leash?!?

Colie CVT It was windy more than cold that day lol. It's been in the 40-50s recently, actually up over 60 today, so it feels downright tropical! Downfall is that we have wind and rain making it a bit chilly overall lol. Up there the wind was really strong.

And that is Myles. My mom gave him the nickname Myles, Myles full of smiles. He always has that happy look on his face.

Harry and Lola Sure looks cold there

I love the look on your Retriever's face when facing the camera - is a really big smile

Colie CVT Thank you! I was trying to get some pictures of them near the edges of the hill so you can see how far up we are lol.

It was the puppy's first taste of rock climbing. My older two are used to climbing around on crazy places with me. It took a little coaxing, but once I was down the six foot drop, he came close enough I could help him down. Even if he was unsure and nervous about it. Lava rock is pretty unstable lol. Scraped my fingers a little, but I was proud of him! He'll follow me and my dogs everywhere. Little dude is fearless!

Zeeva Oh my goodness! Your pups are simply gawjeous!

I know it's difficult to get group shots, but those in-the-moment pictures turn out pretty darn cool!!!
