D dirtiest activity in town - Jungle trekking

'D K9 Trekkers Gang'

'D marshall'

1 of d finest weekend activities around coz jungle trekking means getting down n dirty in d jungle n mud. Longer haired n furry mutts hv it tough as d dirt n soil will stick 2 deir coats n a thorough bath is d only remedy. JRTs r blessed in dis instance as our coats r fairly coarse, dry off easily n dirt will also fall out very nicely. Perfect 4 d rough n rugged terrains.

'D fugitive'

V normally trek every other Sat mornings at Gasing Hill, just next door. Hv also bn 2 d Bukit Kiara trek but some oddball decided 2 put up a ban against mutts in dat green lung. Pity as it hd a neat choice of routes.

D K9 Trekkers gang gets a fair share of surprised n curious looks from d morning joggers n trekkers. V try 2 maintain some order n discipline ven running in2 other trekkers coz dun wanna upset dem too much 4 fear of getting banned from yet another park.

'U know u've been in d jungle too long if u begin 2 look like dis ...'

3 routes – short (30 min), medium (1 hr) n long (1.5 hrs), inclusive of breaks n playtime thru thick leafy tropical jungle, up n down a fairly steep hill n bypassing a stream. Easy 4 K9s, moderate difficulty 4 humans. Sometimes hv 2 lug my owner around, especially during d uphill sections.

Highlight of d trek is d stream where v get 2 run off leash n soak in d cool shallow waters. Also get 2 fool around with me mates, Hana, Yen Yen, Duchess, Baby n Rakan, running loose n playing chase at dangerous speeds … dis is wat v live 4! Fair bit of mud around dis area as well if u intend 2 masquerade as d Swamp Thing. My ideal playground … mud, dirt, water n splish splash, groovy.

Sometimes bump in2 a couple of elderly gentlemen doing taichi, playing d harmonica n singing in d middle of d jungle. Funny lot dese humans … I cn appreciate d music n song but dunno bout d sloth-like dance steps.

'Yeah, finally back 2 civilisation n all d modern comforts dat comes with it.'

Thanks John
