Witness the majestic landscape. The blue skies. The lush ravines. The deep, clear waters.

Pretty Shelties named Shadow.  :)

What else would you expect while hiking along the Arkansas River in central Colorado?

Star power for sure, Lum!

On the ride home from a camping trip in the mountains we stopped at the Dairy Queen in Montrose, CO for a Blizzard.  Shadow got to lick the empty cup (no chocolate).
He observed that the new “mini” size fits his muzzle perfectly — no need to secure it with paws — it stays put tightly enough that you can work your tongue all around and thoroughly clean it without it slipping off! He thought other Shelties would want to know about this.
The only negative is the smear of ice cream on the snout. But Mom got that with a wet paper towel.

Fun, fun, Lum!

Shadow attended Salida’s “Hooligan” race on the Arkansas River during the 63rd annual FIBArk Festival this year.

Prior to the race, a few folks floated downstream in inflatable tubes suitable for swimming pools, not the raging river.   He was VERY concerned!
A good boy Lum!  He takes his job very seriously!  ;))
