Hiking meet up during the summer near Tacoma/Seattle?!

So this is VERY preliminary, but I think it would be awesome to get a group of people to go hiking every weekend or every other weekend with their goldens this spring/summer! Would anyone be interested!?

Me!!! Count me in as long as the hikes aren't too long. I am very cautious about Molly's hips. She's still a pup.

I'd love to but I live in Vancouver and Seattle would be a little too far

We can do short hikes! I just think it would be so much fun to see a pack of goldens making their way up the trails.

I'm from the Tacoma area in WA, but there are hikes everywhere! I'm willing to drive a little ways as well!

I love that vision of a pack of goldens!

I could go once....if Bridger acts rude we'd never be welcome again. Really, he has to sniff rears to be comfortable around strangers.

DogsRule...I saw where you were looking for a breeder..any leads?

I'd be willing to drive too! I'm in Seattle. 3-4 mile hikes would be okay.

I love this...this is going to be so great! I'm excited. I'll start looking for dog friendly 3-4 mile hikes in the area! I'll also note who is interested and make sure I start a list.

I've never been to Canada...I bet there are some great hikes there too though!

Bruce, hahaha I'm sure we are all used to that! Thanks for asking about the leads. I contacted chuckanut and kiro's as well. We haven't heard back from Chuckanut, but it's only been a couple of days and it's the holiday season so I'm sure everyone is busy. Kiro said that they were thinking about another breeding where puppies would be ready for summer which would actually be perfect for us, but we will check back with her after the 1st of the year. We also talked to Kathy with Aspire Goldens a while ago, but she said to contact her in January when they might know more...so we'll see!!!

I have heard that Chuckanut is hard to get a hold of/get a response from, so it's best to call/be a bit pushy.
