My granddog got his first taste of hiking the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia last Saturday--Humpback Rock, a short but steep trail http://virginiatrailguide.com/2009/06/18/humpback-rock/
He was carried through the muddy spots (would you let that soft, chenille-ish coat get muddy??) but soldiered through the majority of the trek on his own four paws. Whatta guy!
