    Aww, they’re so stinkin’ cute! And they look very official in their backpacks!

  • Megan May 13, 2009 at 4:30 pm

    Are they working or just going on an adventure?

  • Cathy May 13, 2009 at 4:38 pm

    How adorable are your pups? They look like serious backpackers!

  • Megan May 13, 2009 at 4:41 pm

    Love the pups! I wouldn’t mind walking the dogs if they carried my things like water, phone, keys!

    My dogs just loved to backpack.

    This photo is actually our first hike of the year in Apr 2000 so packs are full of towels to add bulk. Dog have to accustomed to the extra width of the bags otherwise they scrape up against trees and each other.

    Then I would gradually add weight throughout the month until they could carry all the water needed for a 2-hour hike.

    When I would get the packs out the dogs could not wait to get strapped in. They loved it!

    We used to hike with our dogs, and they loved wearing their packs, too. And they got the BEST reactions from fellow hikers because they looked like they were working. When we took hikes and they didn’t have the packs on, reactions were much less favorable…

    Can they find morels too? That would be cool. :)

    Obviously I’m not “with it” because I didn’t even know there WAS such a thing as a doggy-paack.

  • Lori E May 13, 2009 at 8:43 pm

    Well when your dogs run away from home they really mean it don’t they.
    The only thing my dog carries around with her is her smell. Love her though…Miss February on a 2010 calendar coming up.

    oh my gosh! aren’t those bags the sweetest!! I could use one when I’m shopping….I mean a dog with a pack :)

    Ceasar Milano (Dog Whisperer) would be proud…

  • paramore rox May 15, 2009 at 10:13 pm

  • StoneyNibbles May 16, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I too had no idea about the dog packs… But we live in NYC, little hiking going on there…

  • Michelle May 16, 2009 at 12:28 am

    Stoney,

    When we lived in Chicago I would strap up the dogs and take them to the farmer’s market. It was so nice being able to load up their packs with vegetables and flowers. And of course they loved all the attention and pets.

    Loving your black dogs. Fabulous to see them doing work too. Yay you!

    Please may I come back and visit again?

  • Tara and Ricks Pets May 17, 2009 at 8:21 pm

    Absolutely adorable to see them hiking with their backpacks! It’s amazing how many people see a Rott (or any big dog) and will be afraid, but yet throw a backpack on them and all of a sudden they are okay (in ref to your comment about the hikers).

    Thanks for checking out my blog from twitter :-)

  • Mr. Puggle® May 18, 2009 at 9:43 pm

    hey i wear the same pack on me too. my humans fill it with weights so i get more energy out. only mine is a quarter the size of yours. your monkey bread post made me hungry!

  • Samson's Gym May 25, 2009 at 12:00 pm
