    I sh*t you not.

    I decided to take him to a local nature preserve yesterday because it was so pretty out. We've been there a gazillion times, and it's not the Sahara Desert or anything, but it's pretty  big--maybe a couple hundred acres. So anyhoo, after about twenty minutes I decided to head back to the car (so we'd have about 45 minutes out on the trail tops), and TWO HOURS LATER we finally found our way out.


    A turkey buzzard followed us for awhile but did not eat us, and we also saw a snake, a lake, and a bunch of frogs.

    Next time I'm bringing a compass.

      Wow -- bet that got a bit scary, after a while.

      Thing is, your dog knew the way back the whole time and was snickering behind his paw.

        I apologize for derailing this convo a bit, but Teresa's comment made me think of Duck Hunt and this video.

    I like taking my dog through the woods as well, so I always make sure I bring some water too, even if I am only going to be out there for a short period of time.

    Well, pgrundy--

    Thank goodness you passed your pooch's orientation-for-humans test, huh?
