[at-l] Dogs


=09My advice is to wait and get a dog after your hike and if you have a dog=
 now leave it at home. :-)
=09That is rather direct but it is my opinion. About the only animals I hav=
e had trouble with on the trail are dogs. By trouble I mean dogs that I hav=
e meet on the trail snarling with teeth showing threatening Ill bit you if =
you proceed with your hike unless you dispatch with me first. Or stinking w=
et dogs brought into shelters who sling rain water from their coats all ove=
r you and your gear, at least the stinking hikers don't do that hahaha. Exp=
ensive ultralight hiking gear doesn't stand up well
to claws from the happy animals either. Please consider these things when y=
ou hike with your dog.
