Sofie will be 3 in March -- they told me she was a lab mix when I adopted her but I don't believe it. She loves new experiences.
I am looking for a "nice" group of people and a chance for me and my dog to spend time with others outdoors. What can I contribute? That's hard to answer -- hopefully Sofie and I are decent company.
Cool weather, nice scenery... don't care about rocky, elevation change, water. I don't have a favorite local hike as I miss the Sierra Nevadas too much... but I enjoy hiking at Prince William Forest, think Sky Meadows is nice, and also enjoy most trails in Shenandoah NP.
We were in obedience classes (in level 4 of 4!) -- intend to get back into that and work toward Canine Good Citizen criteria. We tried agility -- but Sofie, who is usually enthusiastic and loves to race around, jumping over obstacles, was shy... so that was a bust. We may try it again sometime.
Hi -- Sofie and I are looking forward to hiking with doggie friends and their owners.
