Braxton and I hiked 20+ miles at Valley of Fire yesterday

More: After losing our Rottweiler and Pitbull within months of each other and feeling the huge void, we rescued Braxton from a very bad shelter situation. He immediately showed his unmistakable sweet nature and seamlessly joined our family of 3 geriatric Chihuahuas. They are inseparable at home; he is their tireless protector from wildlife while camping; and my constant companion on hikes and runs throughout the Southwest.
