Adventure Dogs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love reading about our history, especially past adventure that dogs were apart of.

Did you know Lewis purchased a Newfoundland, named Seaman, for $20 in 1803 to occupany him and Clark on their expedition?

Have you ever heard about Bud? In 1903, Dr. Horatro Nelson Jackson, took him along for an adventure and he became the first dog to cross the United States.


 Or about Benny and Maxx? Kayak extraordinaires!
 

I think what it all comes down to is adventures, whether its finding new land or crossing Lake Ida, is much more fun when you have a dog to share it with!

Happy Wednesday!

  3. Oh, you are so right. A dog make any adventure better. A dog also makes hanging out and relaxing (which I am very good at) better, too.

  4. There was a really interesting article about Bud that I read last year. I think it might have been in Bark magazine. That dog was a celebrity!

  6. I love adventures, but my Parental Unit is a bit overprotective! We went to our first dog park yesterday, but we didn't go in. Parental Unit said the dogs were too big, and some had muzzles on. What if they fell off, she thought?
    So we went to another park where I did my usual 1 hour walk (on a leash!)

  9. Yes, everything is better and more fun with DOGS! Haven't we all seen that the people who live by that philosophy seem to have a far more joyous spirit?
