Hi All,


          I got the following email about dogs on hikes.  Please let me know what you think.




Hey Rich,

I like to take my brother's dog on hikes. My brother has medical problems, so he doesn't exercise her enough. She doesn't do well on a leash, but she is a really friendly and great hiker. She tends to walk with whomever is at the head of the group, then occasionally walks back to the stragglers.

Do you think it would be a problem to bring her on various hikes? I know the leash rules are a problem, and I will pay if fined. I do clean up after her. If you don't think it's a good idea to bring her, I will leave her home.
