Here are the rest of the pictures from Batman’s journey to Dog Mountain, and all over Vermont. We went hiking and swimming everyday. He was in heaven! Apologies in advance for the volume of pictures — Vermont is so beautiful, and we did so many different things, I just wanted to share it ALL with you. I had a hard time editing.
First, can you spot Batman in the picture below?
We went to Dog Chapel in remembrance of our friends. It was an incredibly moving experience, it felt like a pilgrimage for dog owners saying goodbye. I was moved to tears, looking at the beautiful windows, carved pews, and the altar of dog statues in the sanctum of the chapel. Truly no detail had been overlooked.
Then I noticed, wait a sec, one of the statues is moving!
What a silly boy. He sniffed all their butts, ingratiating himself with the pack.
After paying our respects, we explored the beautiful landscape of Dog Mountain.
Of course, Batman went straight for a puddle before noticing the two ponds on either side of the path.
“Now THIS is a puddle!”
“Is this heaven? This is heaven, right?”
The next day, we went hiking at Mt. Ascutney State Park. It was gorgeous up there.
At the base of Windsor Trail.
The next day, we tried dock diving at the Brattleboro Marina. Batman didn’t dock dive so much as dock PLOP. Oh well, we still had a great time.
“Are you gonna throw that ball, or what?”
Batman, resting his chin on his ChuckIt ball, can you see it under his massive neck?
On the lookout for water squirrels.
Finally, here’s the view from the summit of Mt. Ascutney, taken with my iPhone.
