It's all about the pups this week! From dogs who participated in Mutts on the Mountain to hounds who took hikes with their people, they're all going to make you say "awh!" 

This weekend, Seven Springs hosted Mutts on the Mountain, an obstacle course for pups of all shapes and sizes. With assistance from their owners, the dogs had to run through bubbles, jump over hurdles, teeter on a seesaw, weave through fire hydrants and more!

It looks like Rockee the Husky was tired after running the puppy 5K! Thankfully he had his dad's shoulders to lay on.

 

There's nothing wrong with having a little fun. It looks like these doggos and their owners had a great time at Mutts on the Mountain, especially in the "Bath Time" obstacle.  

 

And would you believe that these two drove 10 hours from Illinois to participate in all of the fun? How awesome!

Humans weren't the only ones putting their eclipse glasses on and viewing the phenomenal solar eclipse on Monday. Farrah the Australian Shepherd put safety first and wore the proper eyewear while watching the eclipse by the Youghiogheny River at Ohiopyle State Park.

 

This cute little Shih Tzu hiked 9 miles with its owner on the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail. Let's hope there were treats waiting at home, that's a long walk!

 

This adorable French Bulldog went for a hike at the Laurel Hill State Park. What did you do this weekend? Hopefully explored the Laurel Highlands like this good boy!

 

I hope you can get some nature time in the weekend. Nature makes us so happy. Do you love the outdoors, too?
