Last weekend, Miley and I dropped Joshy off at Gold's Gym to run on the treadmill, and headed over to the Boulder Canyon Nature Trail right here in Vestavia Hills! It is beautiful, complete with little bridges and a creek with fantastic rocks scattered throughout it. Miley girl had a BALL! So many new smells, all the water she could drink (not sure she'll drink out of it more in the future, just in case there could be chemical run-off in the water, but it'd just rained a TON, so I thought it was safe) fresh air, and great exercise! Here's a pic from my camera phone of our little mountain mama checking out the creek. I was excited she took it upon herself to get in b/c, as Lake lovers, Josh and I want Miley to love the water, too! She's getting so big.... around 45 lbs now and is made of pure muscle and energy. We've been thinking she has some doberman, lab, and hound in her.... not sure what else... but she is very fast and incredibly agile! Over the past few months, she's also grown in some brown fur behind her ears that is so cute and makes her coloring neat and unique.
