Are you coming?

You can clearly see this question in Murphy's face as we descended the hill on our hike this afternoon. Bandit, Murphy, and I went to a remote trail near Redwood Park, that's actually in Chabot Park in Oakland today for our walk. It's a quiet trail; no one else was on it, so Bandit got to be muzzle-free. The trail is quite steep so we all got a good workout. The up side of all the smoke in the air these days is that the whole day is spent in a kind of "magic-hour" twilight. Life seems so miraculous in this quality of light... The sticky monkey flowers are blooming and the rattle snake grass is dried. All in all it was a good day.

We have room in our Wednesday walking group for 4 more small dogs. Bandit and Murphy would love the company of more playmates. To learn more about Little Paws Big Adventures services visit:

Blue, Murphy, Bandit, and I went to the Albany Bulb this afternoon. The clouds were coming in so low over the bay and making beautiful patterns on the water. Murphy and Blue chased each other around the beach. Bandit stayed on leash because he's got no recall.

on the Job

Blue decided to drive Parker and me to the trail today. We had a nice long hike at Bridgeview Trail with lots of splashing and playing in the creek.

Yesterday Afternoon

Yesterday afternoon, Murphy, Bandit and I went to the Bridgeview trail where it was quite quiet. On our water break, Bandit got to lose his muzzle for a few minutes so that he could drink out of the squirt botttle. Murphy is a love as usual.

Friday with Blue and Murphy

On Friday Blue, Murphy and I went to the Bridgeview trail. Bridgeview is great because it's shady and there's a creek for the "kids" to splash in, play in, explore and drink from. Murphy and Blue loved exploring the stream and its rivulets. Blue and Murphy love to cool off in clean running water, although neither of them are swimmers.

We have room for four more dogs in most of our walking groups. Do you have a little dog you think would love to run and explore in the great outdoors? Find out more about who we are at
