So! I have an adorable puppy. Well, young dog - she's a year and a half old now.
She loves to hike mountains, which is good, because my fiance loves to hike mountains too.
(I like to ride up mountains, but the going up on my own two feet is...not my favorite. I morph into whiny 5 year old about halfway up and the view is not enough of a consolation for me.)
Fiance is writing a witty, eloquent, and thoughtful blog about his adventures hiking with the puppy. If you're into reading about that kind of thing, I can recommend it with a clear conscience. (If it sucked, I would not be inflicting it on you, I promise.)
