A few months ago, me, my mom and my sister-in-law took all the dogs on a cool hike. Zoey and Motlie have only interacted once last year when she was a puppy and so it went pretty well! 

We weren't sure how it would go considering Motlie is a rambunctious uber-friendly youngster and Zoey is not very fond of dogs getting in her space but it turned out that Motlie pretty much ignored Zoey and was focused on Kaya and Norman. Motlie is actually pretty good about keeping to herself when other dogs aren't interested in her, but when she picks up speed, she takes out anything and anyone in her path. A couple times Zoey was the subject to that and she let out a growl, understandably, but that was the end of it.

I'm not sure who was more overwhelmed with their level of play, my mom or Zoey, but at some point my mom tried to get them to run with her instead of playing with each other. It was pretty funny.

Apart from that, we enjoyed the new hiking spot. It had a beautiful trail surrounded by tall eucalyptus trees leading up to an area with breathtaking views of Oakland, the bay and San Francisco.

  1. Looks like a cool spot for a hike!

  2. Wow--that IS a beautiful spot! Looks like the dogs all did very well and exhibited extraordinary social skills. I miss hiking in California--but I was always getting covered in poison oak, and with dogs it would be a disaster! :)

  3. Gorgeous pics there, especially the ones with the terrific views. The pooches look like they had a wonderful time. It's always so satisfying taking dogs out for a good walk and tiring them out :) Such lovely dogs too x

  4. what a pretty place to hike

  5. Wonderful that they all got along and had a great time. Love, love, love the photos!
