Reconnaissance dog

Our first visit to the Bonshaw Hills for this fall season included the company of the golden grand-dog. Georgie enjoys these hikes with my husband and me when she has the opportunity to be off lead. With so few people among the many kilometres of trails that day, Georgie enjoyed that freedom.


Georgie is a scouting dog. She loves to run ahead of the lead hiker and explore a bit, then run back. 





If my husband and I are separated on the trail, she will run to the second of us to check in as well. 





She spends the first half of the hike running reconnaissance. By the second half, Georgie is tired and sticks close beside us.


In the parking lot, while my husband gave Georgie a drink, I began to explore the fishing trail by the West River. Georgie pulled away from my husband and ran to me, then into the river.





Coaxing finally got her out of the water where she shook herself off, soaking us too. 





To top off the day, Georgie had a scoop of vanilla ice cream. She watches eagerly as my husband waits for service at the wicket. It was a perfect Georgie day

Hello, Georgie is a beautiful dog. We used to let our dogs run ahead of us, they would always come back to check on us. Love all the cute photos.
Enjoy your day and week ahead!

She appreciates the off the lead moments she get from you. To top off the day with an ice cream, there is no better way. :)

We used to have a male mutt like Georgie when we hiked. And did exactly the same. Never thought of rewarding him with ice cream, though.

Dogs, like children, should be taken where they can run off the lead and finds things to enjoy. I'm so glad you spoil the Grand-dog.

This looks like nice place to walk. A lot of dogs are just like kids...they love water. I used to have a dachshund. And if we came to a mudpuddle she was in it and laid down! 20+ years later, if my younger daughter came to a mudpuddle I had to be on my toes to keep her from jumping right in the middle of it!

I think we all look like that when we are waiting for someone to buy us ice cream!

Very nice post.
