A few weeks ago we took Massey along, as we do nearly every time, for a weekend hike. She's used to our weekend runs and hikes in places like Ft Ord...big, wide-open fields where she is free to run her cute little bobbed tail off. The Juan Bautista de Anza Trail isn't one of those. Private pastures neatly delineated with one of the most impeccably taunt barbed-wire fences I've ever seen forced Miss Mas to stay on the double track trail for the duration of the stroll. She did sneak under once. Just once. She looks like a wild buckin' bronco with her new-found freedom. Wild and free. You'd never believe that she fell straight to sleep when we got back to the car.
