I volunteered today at the Windy City Canine Rescue‘s “Bark in the Park” event.

It was a lot of fun.  How could it not be? I got to visit with puppies all day!  I even met a “new-to-me” breed.  This handsome pup below is a Patterdale Terrier.  He looked like a chocolate lab puppy.  Too cute!

This is exactly how I feel in the mountains too.

I met Davin and Michelle after hiking with my family for the day on Sunday.  I was tired and as I tried to recuperate in a coffee shop prior to our session, I really didn’t know if I had the energy left to take pictures.  But the moment we got out there, I forgot all about my tiredness.

After living in the Crowsnest Pass for more than 30 years, Michelle knows a few hidden places with the most amazing scenery!

Add a goofy, fun-loving dog to that scenery and you get magic.

I love this next picture. Davin was constantly trying to steal the toy out of Michelle’s hands.

After we left the knoll with the gorgeous scenery, we headed down to a lake for some water fun.  Davin was equally excited to be playing in the water.

Wet, mucky, messy dog.  I love it!  :)

Thanks Michelle and Davin!  You are definitely going to have to show me more of these hidden places. I think I know a few pups would would have fun out there getting wet and dirty.
