I had minor surgery on my hand and wasn't allowed to pick up any babies so it had been 6 days since our last hike. They were wound up tighter then a drum. Prancer & Kobe barked all the way. The kids went wild! They were so excited and full of energy they couldn't stand still for pictures. Ginger and Kaylee would stop at every patch of snow for a nibble. It felt so good to be out again. I find myself smiling ear to ear and thinking how blessed I am. I love dogs so much. I'm living my dream.
