When we were at Max Patch, we met a dog that has been living there for who knows how long. He had a collar on, but no tags. The People think he was either dumped there by his owners or possibly got separated from his group and is now lost. They like to think he is just lost and that someone wouldn't dump their dog like that, but who knows. He didn't look sick or hungry, so people must be feeding him well.

Here he is playing with our group. He looks like a boxer / pitbull mix.

On the way up the trail, we learned that this dog likes to be in charge of all other dogs on the mountain when he voraciously "alpha maled" Rooney. He didn't mess with me though - I think we all know why. After that we had to keep him away from our group so Rooney and him didn't get into a tussle. We decided to name him Gargamel because he was always trying to sneak into our group and terrorize Rooney.

The name of our camping trip became "Gargamel Watched me Pee" when Margarita made this exclamation on her return from a pee break.

The People asked a group to call Animal Control when they got off the mountain and had cell signal, so hopefully Gargamel is not running around the mountain any more.

    Oh, poor little garmel..I hope his people want him and are able to find him...if he goes to the shelter, they will probably have a better chance of finding him than wandering around the wilderness.

    Aww poor guy! I hope he finds a home! Some people are so careless with animals.

    I bet he didn't try to rule you Norman because you are so amazing!

    That Gargamel sounds like a real character, I sure hope he finds his way home. What a beautiful place you spent the weekend at. I'm glad you had fun.
