Off to the island

Tomorrow morning very early I am headed out for the second to the last backpacking trip of this season. Dave and I are headed for a three day hike on North Manitou Island about 6 miles off shore in Lake Michigan. If you are a follower of my hiking adventures you will know that I normally also take along the furry hiking buddy (my dog) but there are no dogs allowed on the island... guess she has to sit this one out, she is going to be depressed and confused when I leave with the pack and without her, sorry girl there is another one coming up in mid-October that you can come with.

After I get back I will post the pictures that we get. I hear there are some awesome sights and Dave love his camera so I am sure that there will be some great photos to share.

For what it's worth.

Hard Core? Not for Nuba

Staying with tradition, we take our dog to Petco on her birthday and let her pick out a new toy, which a little bit of guidance. This year the selection was the Fire Hose Squeak N Fetch Large Dog Toy. As I have claimed in the past, I think the dog toy manufactures should hire Nuba as a test pet for toys. I was being hopeful that this one would last for a while. Well wrong I was, we woke this morning to find the ends now frayed... that is less than 12 hours. I will state though the tire biter from last year is still in working order. Although the tire has survived I would recommend it as an outside toy or someplace that you don't care about scuff marks, it leave black scuff marks on the walls or anything else it "bumps" into when being tossed about. So the "hose" will hang around a bit longer as a toy for fetch but can not be left out for general chewing any longer.

Friday 13th... and Happy Birthday

Our little girl is not so little anymore. Nuba turns five doggy years old today and still has puppy left in her. Summer is one of her favorite times... swimming in the river, sun baking on the back patio, walks (more than winter), backpacking. Ah the life of a dog. Now to just hang out and head to Petco later to get a birthday treat.

For what it's worth.
