I haven't checked in for awhile, so thought I'd share some pics. After bouts with Pancreatitis, a sore shoulder and kennel cough early in the year, I'm feeling much better, and I've been taking Kevin and Judy on some walks in the mountains. Little ones at first, but we're working our way back up to be ready for some big ones and some of my favorite: backpacking overnights!

I wanted to ski, but Judy wouldn't let me 'cause my shoulder was still sore!

Next we went across the Big Pond to the Ossipees 5/7

We had to leave before we were done hiking 'cause it was gonna' rain hard!

Things began to clear as we hiked back down!

So, we went for a boat ride in my uncle's new boat!

Don't forget! You can help me raise money for Seek the Peak which helps support the Mount Washington Observatory. This will the 10th year I climb Mount Washington to help them out!

Kevin, there's something different about your photos. Did you get another camera?

Daddy's been usin' a Nikon D80 with a Sigma 17-70 lens for about 10 dog years now, (that's about 18 months for you).He uses somethin' called Lightroom to make 'em look nice, too. I think it brings out my natural beauty, don't you?
