The Ponds



Another rottie owner on the hiking trail asked me why I don't take my little water lover to the ponds.

The ponds??

We apparently have natural spring ponds across the freeway from where I hike. I've seen them getting off the freeway...but how to get there?

The rottie lady brought one of her trio, met us at the usual spot and led the way. There are several problems hiking at the ponds. For one, there are exactly three parking spots... a huge deal in L.A.

The parking is on a terribly busy street and you must take a trail under the freeway...with easy access to the freeway! Not the best for off leash dogs! But once past the freeway, OH! It's a little slice of heaven! Two nice sized ponds with a natural creek flowing between and around them. And lovely vegetation.

I naturally had to go back with the Rhody pack-mates. And dear Sue has gotten Mabel to actually swim!

The dogs frolicked. The humans relaxed and laughed.

Hank took to Mabel's trick of just laying down for a drink...with Miss M supervising, naturally!
And... for the second time ever, I caught Mabel Lou leaping on film!
The black blob in the back is the girl doing her thing:
Ahh....

What a beautiful, peaceful place. I can tell by your photos that the dogs love it.
