Well done you three - fantastic outcome to this walk! :clap:

From now on climbing hills will be a bit of an anticlimax if you don't also rescue a lost dog in the process. :wink:

OK I admit it. I cried. I would love to think that you guys did what most dog-lover/hill-walkers would do. BUT ..... to learn these lessons of humanity at such an early age and to achieve what you have achieved..... Kyle you are an absolute inspiration and your dad didn't do too bad either :wink:
