From dog-friendly hikes, to a surprise encounter with wildlife in the mountains, to getting up close to a prairie staple, we're getting our fill of cute-meets-Zen in western Canada.

Blogger Linda Hoang shared a photo with this adorable horse in Flagstaff County for her last story on ZenSeekers. Now is definitely the time to learn how to ride if you've ever wanted to try!

Check out these curious pups surveying the land while camping! There's nothing like spending a night or two in the great outdoors with your adventure buddy.

If you're a resident of BC or Alberta, you're very familiar with our rabbit friends. This one seems to be taking refuge among the branches.

We LOVE Henry! Seriously, dogs make the best adventure buddies. And this one seems to make a great #TakeItToTheLake companion too.

Learn how you can #TakeItToTheLake this summer.

While these bear cubs are ADORABLE, Travel Alberta leaves us with a good reminder. To enjoy our beautiful outdoors responsibly, make sure to leave wildlife alone and stay as far away as you can.
