|Piper - "What a Cute Dog" - on the summit of Mt. Major|
And so I decided it would be fitting to celebrate the blog's third anniversary with a hike where the Foster Dog Summit adventure began back in 2011 on the trails of Mt. Major. I also had visited Mt. Major with Bandit and Neely on a number of occasions, and I relived many happy memories of our trips as Piper and I hiked along on a humid afternoon.

Following our very pleasant trek in which we encountered numerous other hikers and their canine companions, I also agree that Piper is very well behaved, quiet, friendly and walks well on a leash. Since Piper had limited experience with leash walking, I opted to use the Gentle Leader harness on our way up the trail. However, she walked so nicely without any pulling, that we used a regular collar and leash on our descent.

See you on the trails!
