Resting after a hike to the top Saddleback Mountain in Rangeley, Maine.

More: With his tawny coloring, long legs, and white patch under his tail, Lucky looks like a small deer. We call him our Dear Dog. He is the world's best hiking dog. At home, he is affectionate but not needy. We rescued him from the streets of Alabama through an organization called Lucky Pup Rescue, so my then-8-year-old son named him Lucky. He's the best!
