I have entered the Adventure Animal category and I should win because -- as all my friends know -- I am the ultimate Adventure Dog! Because my parents are amazing (if, at times, a bit nutty), I have lots of amazing adventures. We go hiking as often as we can, usually along the James River in Richmond, Virginia, because we live in Richmond and we have a number of incredible trails very close by. We also love to travel and hike and explore places that aren't as close by.
I'm always ready for adventure!

the Southernmost Point in the United States,
and the highest point along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina!
My most favorite adventures involve hiking, swimming, mud and sticks! I'm a Cadet Dog Scout and a member of Dog Scout Troop #194. Mom, Dad and I go on lots of Dog Scout hikes, Human Adventure hikes led by my buddy Josh, and family hikes.
|I love mud.|

That's me in the lead, and my mom in the blue. (Mom says, yes, it was very
cold walking through the river in February. Like I said, she's nutty.)

|And I found the ultimate stick!|
|I can fly!!!|
|I'm a River Dog!|

I like to swing from vines.
And I like to skateboard.
Sometimes I just like to pillage and plunder.
