Wild Dogs

Chilly start
Becca and I linked up with JC and Shaque on our way back and extended our hike with them.  When we hit the road leading to the mountaintop a small dog named Thor showed up to play, despite being called repeatedly by his woman guardian.  After she finally came to collect Thor, old Shaque (all 15 years 8 months of him) took a poop then went on a spirited run almost all the way to the ramada at the Sunset Parking lot.  JC and I were amazed.  Even Becca couldn't believe Shaque still had that much energy in him.
