It's the time of the year when all the holidays are back to back together.
We had a 5-day break over the Thanksgiving holiday...ooops, also the last Thanksgiving as a student.
We humans were lazy enough to plan a decent trip so instead, we decided to go for a small trip in Palm Springs.
Basically, hiking, eating, shopping, and SHOPPING!!!!! (and of course, laying comfortably in our airbnb).
We took the pups out for hike on the every first day so that they could use out their energy (so that moms could spend that night shopping).
There aint many off leash trails in this area, but we managed to find one highly recommanded trails!
Somehow at the start of the trail we met other hikers that excitedly told us that there were sheeps up there in the mountain.
Well, I guessed I'm not that excited provided that we have 3 hunting dogs.....(Tiru, Tissue, Tinker....)
It's so fun to see 6 pups running crazily! And 4 of them are like puppy puppy...
Why 6? Ha, met my new godson Rifle the mini Aussie. His parents were out in Vegas during the break so he stuck with us this weekend.
Rifle is about a 7-month puppy, but he is so good at recall. I have no problem letting him off leash and he is nott even my dog lol
Actaeas did great with Rifle as well, not fighting over who OWNS the girls XD
Ok, I'm feeling a little bit uncomfortable right now....Tissue seems to be sensing something...
Tinkerbell is really the good rep of our Ti-family. Tinker knows Rifle since he was about 3 months, they played together when he was only the size of Tinker. And of course, they are no match right now...ha.
As written in the reviews, the view is astonishing!!! You get to see the valley and downtown Palm Springs.
We started pretty late on the trail so we did not get any further after this picture.
Nevertheless, Tissue went out to chase the sheep!!!!!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There were like 3 sheeps when we saw them. I was the first one to spot them and once I shouted to my friends, they all didn't see them but Tissue did. She ran right off....I couldn't really imagine Tissue spotting the animals provided she is that short, and the animals were high on the cliff........
Anyway, I instinctly chained up Rifle (yap, it would be a nightmare) and was hoping Tissue would be back on her own. Nope, I was so wrong. Tissue forgot she had a family and Tinker just went her sister so bad that she went missing as well.
OK....after 5 years of not hunting down Tiru, I am now hunting down the 2 small girls.
We actually had to climb on the off-trail cliff in order to track out those two girls (and they werent even close to one another). Luckily I have 3 other friends with me on the hike and were able to locate them eventually.
Guess what we saw? A pack of bighorn sheep!!!!! I swore there were like 20 of them staring at us........
======== Second Day ============
Ok, I have to admit that I started this article 2 months ago.....
Now I have no idea what happened back them.....
The shadow must be rifle right? right?
Havent been seeing this boy for quite a while, seemed that he turned into a BIG boy :)
We kept pretty chilled on the second day just staying around our airbnb
They have such a open back yard that the dogs roamed around!
Good that even Rifle is not one of our pack, he wouldnt run away but kept in a good distance.
Just cant stop starring at him!!
I want a son!!! Sometime in the future.
