Caesar was quite happy to be let off leash. This day was his day. Off he ran, returning to check in once in a while.

We went out to Apex and hiked up the side of this hill. Since I'm a sissy, the footpath at the edge of the hill had me very nervous. Despite Alan's urging I refused to look down at the low tide wanting to crawl on my hands and knees. Of course I couldn't face the shame of that so I left the path and took the steeper route to the top.
AAAH the view was spectacular, the bay on one side and the endless land rising and dipping on the other.
The dog was at his finest this day overlooking the bay! Today his old bones are stiff but he smiled the whole day long!

Now at the top of the hill, nature calls. The dog has no problem answering natures call at any time. I on the other hand was a wee bit hesitant and scour the hillside and surrounding area to make sure...and well...Alan being a gentleman turned his back...
Once back in town, my bottom was kinda hurting. Upon investigation I discover that rough black moss/lichen/plant form that adheres to rocks now stuck to me! OUCH! Wilderness peeing 101!

That's too funny. I had to pee once out on a snowmobile trip, I thought I get a frost bit tush, but it all worked out in the end. Better then spending the rest of the day with a full bladder.
What's that harness Caesar is wearing?

Hi Jen
The harness is a padded one that we used when Cz pulled the kids on toboggan or wagon. Now it helps seat belt him in the vehicle.

Very funny about winter peeing. At least you avoided getting frostbitten!

Michele and I had a female Rotty and she too loved to be off the leash so she could run on the land. I hope she is still running somewhere. :o(

On a bright note funny about the moss butt. One advantage a guy still has. :o)
