My Lilo just LOVES her hiking - looks like she's only a little smaller than your pooch. Can't get her to wear the boots, though, like yours does. She just stops walking, or walks so slowly that I go insane after about 2 miles. ;) Something to think about with dog packs... I've been reading that it's best to keep their pack weight consistent over the entire hike. I used to have Lilo (and Paula before her) carry her own water, then her pack got lighter and lighter as the trip went on. But lots of more experienced folks convinced me that I should have her carry gear, and I carry the water, so that she has to readapt to the equilibrium change less often.
