And please don't be offended if you see me pull a knife out when passing by your lovable and loyal (to you at least) snarling, trying to eat my kid, pit bull. I love dogs on the trail, but some need to stay away from people who didn't come to the trail to see Kujo.

My dog has as much right to be on the trail as anyone else. I wouldn't even consider hiking without my dog.

As long as I don't step on a steaming pile in the middle of the trail, I can live with it.

The only hiking companions I have are my two dogs. We usually stick to slower, less used trails, and try hikes during the weeks as often as we can to avoid the masses. Don't worry, they are both self concious and usually do their business far from sight. The do get a little edgy in the woods at night, and have barked at the night hickers, but once they realize its just people, the tails are wagging again.

There is no place where my dog is happier than on the trail. I see no reason they shouldn't be able to enjoy the wilderness as much as I do.

Bring 'em. Keep the crap off the trail and make sure they are good with new people.

It's cute. Especially the little chihuahua that tries to act all tough.
