A hiking we won't go.

We were planning this past weekend to go on an amazing hike and taking beautiful pictures of all the fall colors. We even bought Diesel some fun shoes because we had heard horror stories of other dogs having sticks go through the paw and how their pads were shredded if they were not used to being outdoors for long periods of time. Even after being made fun of by our friends and families, we still bought the shoes. ;-)

However, the Friday night before the hike, we had the youth church lock-in. I don't know what I was thinking! The last time I stayed up all night long was a church lock-in when I was a youth! Well, I had stayed up to study for a college final but I had also consumed at least 6 cups of caffeine. Anyway, I figured that John would drive to the two hours to the park and I would sleep on the way.

OOPS! John was on call that night and HE went in at 12:45am and came home at 5:30am.
Unfortuantley, we both slept until 2pm. Fortunatly, so did our sweet dog...kind of.

Anyway- here is Diesel in his new shoes...... feel free to laugh.

Poor baby ... this is too cute! I'm sure once he gets out on the hike, he'll forget about the shoes and have a great time, but klomping around the living room is a funny site! Please don't tell him I laughed AT him ... if he could laugh, I'd be laughing WITH him!!!!

He would have been a site to see walking like that on the trails! Too bad you didn't get to go! Where were you going to hike at? We hiked last fall but I don't think I will be doing any this year.
