I love watching a dog in their element. Reminds me of my girls willingness to run flat out and turn on our dime before her surgery. Go dogs!

Awesome video. I muted the sound and went with what was already playing here - Steely Dan's Don't Take Me Alive. It worked!

Look at that beautiful dog go!

I've always thought dogs with owners who run or hike are the luckiest dogs ever. I'll have to add trail biking to that list.

The dog is all like "this rocks - daddy can totally keep up with me and I'm the leader of the pack." Happiest dog ever.

And it will only take 49 more trips down that path before that border collie is tired too!

Yeah, if you like to see dogs--especially this kind of dog--in their true element, you need to be following HerdyShepherd. So much awesome.

So the bike shop owners whom I hung out with when that kind of riding first became a thing around here rescued a dog who became the store and group-ride mascot.

A terrier mutt of some sort, Zooey was the smartest dog, ever. Never barked, or put his nose into stranger's crotches when they came into the shop. Came when you called him, sat when you said to, totally let little kids climb all over him. Never got in your way in the slightest on the trail, no matter the size of the group, or how gnarly or unpredictable the terrain. Always wanted to run with the lead rider, even if he had never met the rider before.

Zooey did have one flaw though, he was a shameless mooch. The owners never allowed anyone to feed him anything ever, and Zooey was constantly angling for a handout. One day a group of about twenty of us was on the long 15 mile uphill leg on Mt Garibaldi where there is a major network of mountain-bike trails. About half-way up the mountain there is an area where a bunch of different trails converge, and it is a traditional resting-spot/lunch-break/meeting area.

It wasn't till we got to the top of the mountain a few hours after stopping there that we discovered that Zooey wasn't actually with anyone, and no one had seen him since then. Hammering back down the mountain, the owners and all of us were immensely relieved to find Zooey contentedly hanging out there, patiently waiting for the gang, while shamelessly mooching scraps from the various different riding groups coming through, who all just assumed that he was some other group's dog.

I love the part where Kaia stops, looks back, and seems to be thinking "What the fuck is taking you so long? Let's Go!"

Man, I usually hate dogs, their owners, and especially dog owners who try to bike with their dogs out in public. But that was pretty damned good.
