If one finds something interesting to sniff.. then the other runs up and has to sniff it too.
I loved looking at these trees, it's like they were bent by the wind.
Boomer loves to play tug with his leash when he's excited, so cute!
Ruger got stuck on a tree. I had to climb down a steep ledge to untie him. Boomer did absolutely nothing to help.
I found a gorgeous park by my place and took the pups on a little adventure to go explore it. I've heard of this park before - it's labeled as a "dog park", but it's really just an open field surrounded by short hiking trails with a river running through it. Utah has these beautiful canyons and mountains, but a lot of them aren't dog-friendly because the water from those areas provides the drinking water for the valley. So when I pulled up to this, expecting an actual dog park (you know the ones that are a square patch of dirt with a big boring fence around it), I was beyond excited.
I decided not to edit these photos so you can see how vibrant everything is. All those beautiful shades of green are real and they just got more beautiful as we walked up the trails! I like to leave the leashes on the dogs when we first explore somewhere new. That way, I can hurry and grab a onto a leash and stop them from taking off unexpectedly. The only issue this day, was Ruger got caught on a tree branch! As soon as I clipped the leash off of him, Boomer ran up and started tugging on it thinking it was time to play. He's always had a habit of doing that when he's excited. He will also walk around and carry his own leash when he's ready to go on a walk. I'm thinking maybe it's his own little way of saying he's happy. Love my pups!
