the hills are ALIVE

I just got back from a 3-mile hike with the dynamic duo of doom. Celeste currently believes leashes are for losers and could I please remove hers lest she drag me to kingdom come? God, it's been awhile since I taught loose lead (I mean, like six years, since I first adopted Mina). Celeste has also developed a belief system about downed branches - she is definitely against them, especially when they look at her funny in the wind. Miss Mina was overjoyed by the entire experience and is currently curled up into a pit-donut snoring. It's ridiculous how much I love her. Celeste too, but ridiculous in a "oh my god, how can you love that?" sort of way. Just kidding.

Or am I?

Yeah, I am.

On the subject of ridiculous, what the heck is up with dog park people who ignore the 300-acres of gorgeous hillsides for a 2-acre lot? I did a double-take, thinking they had converted the dog park into a people park. There were more people congregating in a circle than there were dogs. I just don't get it. I mean, I'd get it if they just visited the park for 20 minutes to let their dog piss, poop, socialize and wreak havoc upon the universe...and then headed up into the hills. But they don't. WHY DON'T THEY COPY EVERYTHING I DO?!?!?

It's probably for the best - it means I get the entire freaking park to myself. On my hike, I saw ONE person. ONE. And fifteen cows who Celeste thought were the best inventions EVAR. Mina acted cool, because she IS cool (plus, she dressed up as a cow for Halloween, so she's so over the whole cow thing).

My butt and thighs are currently on strike. It's been awhile since I've gone hiking. That ends today. Yeah.
