Shiloh, the dog, turned 13 this week. For a little present, yesterday I took him up to Sacajawea Peak outside of Bozeman. The road in was still gated, about 2 miles below the normal Fairy Lake campground area. The extra distance made for a great addition to an already great hike. Alas, I think its getting to be too much for the old boy. I fear his big hiking days are over, he's really starting to struggle on some of the steeper slopes, especially slopes with snow. Kind of a shame really, he has the enthusiasm and desire, but his legs are letting him down. I can't even begin to imagine how many miles Shiloh has seen on his little legs?
Happy Birthday Shiloh!
