Wind Burned Ballyhoo Baby

We borrowed Kali from Bear and brought the dogs for a workout on Ballyhoo tonight after work.  It was good to be out snowshoeing and even though we turned around only halfway up, we both ended up with some pretty windburn.  You can see Chico waiting patiently along the trail for us to stop goofing off and get back hiking.  Speaking of Chico, he heard a loud noise and bolted when we got back to the truck and we spent 40 minutes and some more hill climbing looking for him.  Our "Dog Whisperer" friend Bear came out and helped look and found him on the West side of the mountain, reuniting him with two very worn out and worried dog parents . . . . . .

Oh, I'm so glad you found him. He probably would have found his way home, don't you think? Looks like you guys had fun!

definitely looks like fun. My oldest kid went snowshoeing at school recently and loved it! Glad you found Chico!

Hi Steve, I can't count the number of hours Sherrie and I have spent looking for Elmo & Rio up on Ballyhoo....nothing scared them, though...they were usually buried in squirrel holes. Glad it was a happy ending. Goldfish looks like she's having fun!

You can almost see Chico thinking. :)

"Chico.oO(What are those guys doing, tooling around back there?)"

Windburned but apparently VERY happy.

KC, you're right, I can picture that same thought bubble now that you mention it!
