I took the pups hiking along Pleasanton Ridge recently, on the suggestion of my neighbor and friend Mike. I debated taking Mac with me, and ended up opting to since he was raring to go. In the end this was a mistake since we didn't get very far, but I know he had a great time in the mile or two we hiked. The people we passed thought a hiking bulldog was quite the sight as well.
I'll head back soon with just Ayla (and a charged camera so I don't have to resort to my iPhone again) and explore more.
