Gets Hooked On Hikinghooked on hiking hooked on having a dog then forces the dog to go on what he himself admits are dangerous winter hikes There is another reviewer on here who said this book would have made a good magazine article and I agree with that Story was ong and repetitive Here s the spoiler part of why I stopped enjoying this story I got tired of reading about views from mountains that changed everything for me I took a Penguins Poems for Life look and knew myife was changed forever Really It was OK to hike because you enjoyed the time alone with your dog But when his good friend dies whose funeral you didn t go to because they didn t want you to speak at the ceremony and I think out of guilt you decide to hike mountains in winter to raise money for a charity in her honor that is kind of OK but then to set a random challenging goal and stop working to do it over the winter seemed a ittle self indulgent and odd to me Then to force a miniature schnauzer to do this too There were a few occasions the dog refused to go on the hikes I think he was telling you something I mean really did the dog have the option to opt out The author keeps pointing out how dangerous the weather was and how he kept checking for pending storms etc and complaining whenever it did snow and they couldn t hike I think he added how conscientious he was so that people ike me wouldn t say what the heck were you thinking My response get a job and if you can hike on weekends or days off then go hike The world isn t going to end because you don t successfully climb 49 mountains in the 40 days of winter or whatever it climb 49 mountains in the 40 days of winter or whatever it Make some money and donate it to the charity yourselfI eventually felt ike I was watching one of those TV shows where the overweight moms force their young daughters to enter beauty pageants The dog was getting all this recognition and the owner was preparing to write a book and a blog ab.
