Otis the Rock Climber

It’s certainly no secret that we love to take our fosters hiking. It’s a great way to get us exercise, and it’s usually in a pretty neat location. Some of my favorite locations around here include the C&O Canal, Sugarloaf Mtn., and the Billy Goat Trail at Great Falls. Last weekend we went and explored somewhere new! Mark, Otis, and I headed out to Cunningham Falls State Park in Frederick. Neither of us had been there before, but I’d heard great things so we headed out for an adventure!

I already know Honey Bunches is an active dog who can keep up on a long walk. I was interested to see how he would do on a more challenging hike. Turns out, he was a rock star – no surprise there! He impressed us with his ability to scale some pretty tricky parts of the trail.

The trail was only about three miles round trip, but the inclines made it a nice workout for everyone. It felt like we went up hill on the entire trip to the falls, but when we got there we realized it was totally worth it – what a view!

It was a great afternoon. Otie was so good! He is such a polite walking partner, even on a busy trail where we passed many other dogs and people (a walk where my arms weren’t exhausted at the end?? What a concept!).

And, even with all the new surroundings, things, and people, Honey Bunches was one brave pup. He took the new experience with ease. He even demonstrated his new badass outlook on life:

I think he is ready for a Pittie Trails hike this weekend – so stay tuned for the time & location!
