poo bags, leash long and short, water/food (of course) Diphenhydramine hydrochloride (benadryl) and make sure people are cool with your doggie or other dogs before letting out any lead.

I'll have my hands full this year as well with2!

We are still teetering with what to do with mollie dogginz. She gets a little nervous off-road, but I'm sure would handle it. We mostly worry about her in the hot car when we are places she can't be, and leaving her in a crate in the back at night since our hotel will not allow dogs (she's a sheepdog so she gets territorial and barky at night). We have a good family friend who boards dogs and has a special place in his heart for black and white australians. He has offered to take her, so for the first time since we registered we are wondering if we should leave her with him. This is a harder decision than deciding to leave our 1-year-old daughter with grandma, please help.

We will have Rubi for sure, now that she has earned her namesake by taking the trail on.

Here is how she spent much of the trip, clearly in distress...


On "watch" at the campsite at Buck Island Lake...


And, just hanging out at the campsite at Trumbull Lake after the Rubithon event...

I'm bringing Moa (5 year old Australia Sheppard mix) with me this year. She has a deep bark, but very friendly (tail wagging). However, she thinks my FJ Cruiser is actually hers. She will follow the kids around at the sponsored evening meals, because she recognizes that kids offer the best chance of a snack. No she won't eat the kids, but kids are more likely to spill/drop food from their plates.

I have dug Tillie's roll cage out of the garage, she goes nuts everytime she sees it. She seems to know we are headed to Ouray, but her real interest is headed to Navajo Lake, Utah, where the chipmonks toment her to a frenzy. Ah vacation, just around the corner.

I think that if your dog has never been off roading before, there is no telling how she will respond to the trails up at the summit. My dog has never gone on trails with me so this will be a new experience for her. if anything, I can handle her since it is only me and her. If your family friend has offered to take her in then that might be some stress of your shoulders but then again what is a summit experience without enjoying it with loved ones.:cheers:

It is amazing how dogs know hwere they are going just by us pulling out certain objects that remind them of their past experience.:bigthumb:

Every year we go to Navajo Lake, Utah. The instant we signal off the freeway she goes nuts, stands on her two rear legs, just dancing, looking out the window, 26 miles later she even more excited at the turn in to the camping area, by the time we are at our site she is completely spaz. Gota get the chipmonks, never caught a one, but she still hunts relentlessly. They are much smarter than we think, as they rap us aournd their little paws and make us do the stupidist things. The greatest friend I have ever had, well behind the wife.

I will Fritz with us. Jan PIC of the month. Can't wait. Still have some training to do but should be good to go. Just have to work out the FJ sickness thing.

Eagle that is so true. I had a Beagle and when i told him "ready to go JEEPING (sorry gang) he was in the Jeep before i could get near it. The club used to play tricks on him like when all the J____ were lined up someone yelled get in the J___ and he took about 10 steps and stopped and just stared, which one. Another time i was in a 4 runner (because J___ was in the shop) and had a buddies J___ next to me at the cabin and i yelled lets go and he ran up in between the two of them and looked at the 4 runner and then jumped into the J___. Guess he made his choice. They just know......

Last year there were people carrying dogs in the tent near the children. It made me very uncomfortable and I don't understand why they'd need to have a dog with them at a family event like this. I understand its their right, but come on...

:worried:
