Tesse, Kobuk and Layla joined me for a hike up to Rendezvous Peak (above Arctic Valley and Toklat Creek) this past Sunday with eight other dogs and their people. All three - as shown - are rescues from different sources. Tesse (13.5) is one of our Friends of Pets rescues. Kobuk (8) was adopted from Alaska's Extended Life Animal Sanctuary (Nikiski), and Layla (8) was adopted after being rescued from a home on Elmendorf by a friend and Golden Retriever enthusiast, Kathleen.
The hike was four-miles round trip with an elevation of about 4.100'. All up hill and then down.
