Recieving a Dog’s Unconditional Love

As you all know my blog is called Golden Hiking and I always put up posts about the trails I hike with my dog Mason. With that being said I want to share with you all a little more about the golden part of my blog. So let me formally introduce him: His name is Mason Bleu.

Mason is almost 3 years old now and we are inseparable. After our family golden retriever, Sammy, died from lymphoma at the age of 6, I needed to fill the gap. It was the middle of the summer, July, and I saw a listing for golden puppies and I went JUST TO LOOK. We all know that you can never just LOOK at puppies. So I got Mason that night, at 8 weeks old.
I was so anxious for Mason to get fully vaccinated so I could bring him with me on the trails and to the lake. Adventure was calling our names! I did not waste any time. The day he got his last parvo vaccination I had him out at Boca Reservoir for a camping trip and was teaching him how to swim and explore the woods. We do everything together. Sledding, fishing, camping, hunting, swimming, hiking and cuddling.
If there is anyone that understands my sense of adventure and love for the mountains it is Mason. You know that saying, ” the dog takes on the personality of the owner,” well that pretty much nails it. When we are hiking Mason is in his own little world, doesn’t pay attention to any other people or dogs, and just explores with me to new places.

Nothing beats the smile your dog has on their face after you come home from a long hike. This blog has only brought Mason and I close because I bring him on every hike or trail I go on so he is gaurenteed a few hikes a week now! We will never stop exploring.

Share pictures and stories with me of you and your puppy! You can see more pictures of Mason and our adventures here!

Happy Trails!
