Orienteering with Jobe!


In the Northwest it's pretty much acceptable to bring your dog anywhere - the grocery store, Macy's, etc... so we decided to pick up Jobe from my parents house to take him on the "Ultimate Walk."

The orienteering course this week was at Marymoor, a huge park only 10 minutes from our house. The weather was also BEAUTIFUL. A sunny day in January is pretty rare here, so we felt pretty lucky!

At first we were a little apprehensive about bringing Jobe with us. How would he feel about crawling through thickets, running in tall grass, wading through marshes and meeting tons of strangers? It could have been a long day if we had to drag a dog 5 km from marker to marker. Turns out we didn't need to worry - by the end we were dying and he wasn't even panting. I guess some of us need to get more exercise :)
