Travels With Bowie & D.O.G.: Fall Dogs

In the past six years, my dogs and I have seen a lot of this country. I take a lot of photos when I travel and my favorites are usually the shots with my border collie mixes Bowie and Dio (short for D.O.G.). Without the dogs, it’s just a pretty picture, but with them  it’s a place I’ve been, a place I know and love. From time to time I’ll post some of my favorite photos on here from my travels with Bowie and D.O.G. Today: Fall Dogs!

Fall is my favorite hiking season but it’s also hunting season, a risky time to be in the woods. Since my dogs look a bit like black bears, I keep blaze orange bandanas on them from late September until mid December.
