Let\'s see pics of Dogs and Offroading

JerseyZuks had a great post last week about taking in unwanted dogs and giving them caring homes. In that post some of us attached pics of our own mutts.

Well now I want to see pics of dogs and offroading. Doesn't have to be your dog. But it has to be offroad related. And not just a pic of your dog sitting in your Zuk in the driveway - that's been done before.

I'll get the ball rolling.

Pic 1 is of Kody (yellow lab retriever) and Rio (golden retriever/shepherd cross) following me on the trail. There can be a dozen rigs with us and they'll just follow along mine as if I'm walking them off-leash. And they have an uncanny ability to bail out of the way when things get hairy, and then resume their positions once the obstacle has been beat.

Pic2 is Kody full of mud after running through puddles.

Pic3 is Kody again. This dog doesn't lap water, he dunks for it. Hence the muddy face from drinking out of a mud puddle.

Let's see your pics. Like I said in JerseyZuks post, I never met a dog I didn't like. All are welcome. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Let\'s see pics of Dogs and Offroading

Heres one of my favorites. It's the pic in my avatar. If you look close, you can see the dog in the back window.





Wow, my zuk looked tiny then!






Bindi loves wheeling!

Re: Let\'s see pics of Dogs and Offroading

Here's some pix, not of my dogs (they aren't wheelin dogs..too many bad backs and like to run off in the woods) but they are of Orion, a true wheelin dog and another yellow mud-lab. Owner is "mxnhid", driver of the tintop with the yellow exocage, pictured along with his wife Heidi.

Re: Let\'s see pics of Dogs and Offroading

Hey Daxe, thanks for pulling those pics out. You're right, Orionn is a true wheeling dog. I met Max, Heidi and Orionn at ZookiMelt a few years back (I think those pics might be from that event) and they were great folks. Well Max and Heidi anyway - couldn't have much of a conversation with the dog. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Let\'s see pics of Dogs and Offroading

Those pix are from "Zookin Y2K1" in Westhampton, MA., Ma Bell is the trail.

Yes, Max and Heidi are good folks and Orion is a real character, too. Haven't seen Max around lately, he's probably off skiing in the Swiss Alps or something.

I wish I could take my dogs with me but two of them have serious disc problems (especially Doodles..he has had back surgery, even) and probably wouldn't react well to being bounced around. The third one, Quizzy (beagle greyhound X) is prone to disappearing off into the woods (hounds..go figure) if something catches her eye..or her nose.

I settle for trying to drag my family along, instead. That way my wife can fall on the rocks, my daughter can get motion sickness and my son can fall asleep, which is usually the result.

Re: Let\'s see pics of Dogs and Offroading

Here's a pic of my pup, Reese, yet another lab but I got in a color that blends with mud [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]...can't wait to take him wheeling. If I get the rig done for this weekend he is coming. He's 14 weeks old now (the pic is of him at 12 weeks)

Re: Let\'s see pics of Dogs and Offroading

Koko, he's adorable. Looks like he's gonna be a big one if that was him at 12 weeks.

Daxe, I hear what you're saying about hounds following their noses. My friends with the beagle can never let him off leash. He just puts his nose to the ground and tunes his ears out. I dropped Jeff off at home one night after the bar and "Carbide" managed to sneak out the front door. Took us 45 minutes to collar him and bring him home.

As for bringing my dogs on the trail, I have orange fluorescent vests to put on them if there's a big group, as well as little cowbells they wear on their collars so you can hear them around you as you drive. Also helps to find them if they give chase and wander into the woods. As well, the vests prevent near-sighted hunters from mistaking Kody for a deer, or Rio from a black bear.
