    Some Photos of Taggart in Yosemite Park etc.

    My in laws were visiting from Germany last week, so we all traveled around a little bit here in California and also made some trips over to Nevada. They rented a car so Taggart came along too and since my in laws are obsessed with taking pictures, I thought I'd share some where he is in since I haven't shared photos of him in quite a while...

    He's doing very well by the way. He's turning 8 this September and still the happy, always excited, silly and hyper puppy as always. It's crazy to imagine that this dog came all the way from Faroe Islands with me and has so far lived on both coasts of the U.S! When I first met him in 2007, it was only suppose to be a temporary stay, haha!
    We've been doing agility for about a year but so far haven't competed or anything like that. We just go to class every Friday and do agility for the fun of it. If/when I get a car, I might start competing, who knows. He for sure has the talent for it and enjoys it a great deal.

    Anyway, enjoy! Sorry that there are so many... it's hard to pick favorites!

    Somewhere close to Mono Lake, CA.

    You can see the lake here in the background.

    Some more around the same spot.


    Somewhere around Mammoth Lakes, CA



    Taggart trying to get close to a mule or donkey (I have no idea how to tell the difference) in Virginia City, NV. A guy dressed as an old time miner was walking it around and you could feed it carrots for one dollar.

    His dad (my husband, Alex) trying to coax him into the water

    Not so sure about this... Taggart is not the biggest fan of water.

    With mom (me) he is a little more brave

    Doing good...

    Ooops! Got a little too deep all of a sudden!

    Retreat, retreat!

    Trying to reassure him that he was in fact not close to dying just because his tail got wet...

    Back at the hotel, getting some food from grandpa

    Can you spot the dog?

    There he is. I love this picture! He looks so majestic that you almost forget how silly he really is.

    Great pics of a gorgeous dog and wow the scenery! He is a cutie. My dog is a Llewellyn and she is sort of the same w/water. Why mess around w/that wet stuff when I can go sniff in the bushes. Looks like all had a great time and weather.

    Soo nice to see you again, Taggart! What beautiful scenery, it's kind of a weird dream but I want to travel around the country hiking with Mikey in all the National Parks. Yosemite is very impressive, any wildlife sightings?

    Alyssa this is totally not weird! I have the same dream!! I've always said if I never get to Europe etc I'll be ok with that, because there's soooo much I am dying to see here in the US!

    Wonderful, wonderful pictures you took! I LOVE Yosemite, it's so pretty and so peaceful!

    Thanks guys :-) It was a wonderful trip but I am hoping to do it again without my inlaws. They are awesome and all but not into hiking all that much so there wasn't much chance to see wildlife. I did see some deer though... and a rattlesnake! The snake was just hiding under some rocks, so it was at a safe distance and it wasn't rattling and acting agitated. Still made my heart jump a bit though!
    I was hoping to see a bear but no luck. I did however see some bear scat (poop) Not as exciting but at least it means a bear had been nearby, haha.

    Haha let's go together, that'd be so much fun!!

    That's so cool that you saw a Rattlesnake, I'd be so paranoid about stepping on one. We have Timber Rattlers up here where I'm from and they hide so well, I'm paranoid either Mikey or I will step on one. After an incident with a Northern Water Snake (non-venomous) recently it freaks me out! Mikey is so respectful of wildlife, but if he doesn't see it or smell it, that's a problem!
