Derek and I visited the Bangor Humane Society about 10 days ago in search for a young dog to join our home and become “hiking buddy 0.5,” as Derek put it. I don’t think we expected to find what we were looking for that day, but we did. We left the building with a 7-month old pit mix named Oreo — a name that fits his black and white markings. I’ll write more about my new hiking buddy later, but in the week or so he has been a part of our home, we have been surprised at how quickly he learns. He went on his first hike with us this past weekend, and he had a blast navigating around rocks, jumping up steps and splashing through puddles. By viewing the photo gallery below, try to guess where Oreo went on his first hike (with us, anyway – we don’t know much about his past). Winner gets an internet high five and a mention in the updated blog post. And stay tuned for tomorrow’s “1-minute hike” video of the adventure!
