Saturday Morning Hike

Yesterday morning, we got up early (I had to wake poor Joe up; he was passed out asleep on his back!). We then headed to the woods for a hike. Joe and Ely had a blast! They are both true boys who love to hang out in the woods and lay in the dirt!

We made it to the top!

There were A LOT of people on the trail and Joe did awesome about ignoring them. Even all the dogs didn’t bother him. It must have been take your german shepherd for a hike day, because we saw a lot of them including one that was only 5 months old and already bigger than Joe! 

Both Ely and Joe were tired by the time we got back down to the bottom. We went to grab something for lunch afterwards. I told Joe to find the door and then sit, I opened the door and looked back and Joe was already going back to sleep. 
King of the mountain!
“this rock is surprisingly comfy!”

“are we almost there yet?”
Of course after hiking all morning, we had to stop and get some donuts! It was Joe’s first trip to Krispy Kreme. There was an older lady working who was not in a very happy mood when we went in there. Once we picked out all of our donuts, she finally saw Joe. As soon as she saw him, she was instantly all cheerful! Nothing like a little puppy therapy to make you feel all happy!
Happy boys at the bottom of the mountain!
“no donuts for me”
Once we got home Joe and Ely slept the rest of the afternoon. Joe did muscle up enough energy to run a few errands later in the afternoon.

  1. Gosh he's a good looking dog! It's funny because hiking is our favorite thing to do too. Moxie loves it, but konks out the whole day after.


Thanks for the comment!
