Hullo. Ok, the situation is thus - I want to grow a monster tash. Someone told me before i can actually get a monster tash i need to run up lots of hills, eat a lot, sleep all day and preferably join doll patrol. Then put lots of heavy things on my back, for some reason. I was thinking of investing in a dog - as a furry hill training aide. I'm TA -for now-, but after dog advice from regulars. Has anyone ever taken a dog up big nasty scary hills? - does a dog actaully help in the process of getting up hills (does it bolt up them and give you smug looks till you catch up?) - if one feeds a knackered dog sports energy drinks, does it kind of spazz out all over the hills? Is the spazz out any way amusing enough to compensate for hunting down the little F#%*r afterwards - can a knackered dog fit in a bergan? Oh, i suppose i should ask the obvious? - CAN a dog handle hill walks? - If not, how many hours can it take before its dog under shoulder time Ta very much. Further advice on the topic of hills, and their walking on, is welcome but treated with caution. Advice for resisting knee injuries on hills, knee tracking, and tendon issues greatly welcome. Please, only reply if you HAVE scampered up a big scary hill. Couch potato's need not apply unless they dispense scorn and sarcasm (PS If a dog does selection, can it too grow a droopy bandito tash ? ) Has anyone ever ACTUALLY put a dog in a bergan?
