    Hercules Back on the Wagon for the First Time

    Hercules has found a new passion: pulling Ona on the Horse Cart.

    I finally figured out how to rig our pony cart for him by using old inner tubes tied around the handles.


    PS. All is well until he sees another dog or horse. Then it is full-speed ahead followed by a crash.

    I un-retired Hercules. We have been doing trail work at the entrance to Hansen Dam East. For us, trail work mostly means picking up any and all trash we might find on our strolls.

    Today we collected more boulders for our garden. The VW bumper works great as a boulder collector. We've got a lot of beautiful river rocks around here. My aunt Maylee would love them. She used to paint faces on boulders. I would love to see those again.

    Lesson: Keep your trails clean. Walk your dog. Take a picture.


    PS. Hercules has been with my family for 8 years now. We got him for Ona's 4th birthday. He spent his first two years on a ranch in Oregon. He is a Lab/Newfoundland mix and is already beyond his prime. I retired him a couple years back because he is so unfriendly to other dogs, especially off-leash dogs. He would attack'em when they'd run up to him. Problem. So, now that he has lost a little more steam, I am taking him out again, and it is already improving his overall health.

    Lesson: Keep moving.

    Hercules Retires from Trails

    It's been a long time coming, but Herky finally has to lay off the trails. It's not that he doesn't love humans. It's not that he doesn't love to run on trails. It's because he likes to attack any and all other species of animal, without provocation.

    I can't take it any more. Sorry Herk, your benched...for good.

    Best, Barefoot Ted

    PS. I think he already likes retirement.
