Today I completed my first Munro along with my 2 Huskies and Dalmatian. They did extremely well and we are already looking at doing the next one!

Could not see a thing and with the heavy rain but it was well worth it!

Big apologies to the man who had to do without a sandwich as my Dalmatian thought she could help herself! Sorry!

The Huskies did not help pull me up the hill but they did help pull me down! Literally...

We had a brilliant day and met lots of friendly people!

Well done, you've started so no stopping now :D The title caught my eye, I'm glad it's not just me. My dog Sam did the same in Affric a few years back, chatting away to a fellow walker, my guard lowered and there was Sam, head in the guys rucksack. I retrieved the head together with a tin foil package, despite my best efforts, could not prise open the jaws :?
The guy said no worries, I hardly ever eat them on the hills, phew I thought, before he followed with .... But I eat them on the long drive back to Edinburgh :? :? The ground didn't open up and swallow me, as was my wish and he declined my offering of a Yorkie bar as compensation :lol:
But these are the wee things that will stick in the memories, as I'm sure you'll remember every hill adventure that will no doubt follow this one :D

My dog Lucy once snaffled a bloke's lunch on Slioch. Unfortunately I was that bloke! :evil:

I'm glad it's not just me either then! Haha! Maybe this should be an unwritten rule, make sure you keep your sandwiches above a certain height! Lol. Yep we all have the Munro bug now! Can't wait for the next one! :)

Like SpiderWebb, the title caught my eye. I was on Goat Fell a year or two ago, and while munching a cheeze-salami-and-Branston-Pickle sandwich on the summit, a particular view caught my eye; so I put it down to take a pic - and 5 seconds later it was in a mutt's jaws!

Must have happened to many of us!

Glad you haven't been put off by the weather - it makes it so much more special when it's beautiful!

Nice one - that's you started, you'll have to keep going now :wink:
Haven't had my sandwiches stolen (so far) - maybe dogs don't like cheese and marmalade 8) - cheers :)

You can eat dogs you know. You should tell them that.
