Default Camping this weekend

We went on a camping trip this weekend (our "weekend" is in the middle of the week). It was a lot of fun and didn't get too cold, low was 44 and that was in the middle of the night while the dogs were tucked in our sleeping bags with us


^Kerri hanging out at the campsite.


^Copley showing off his new coat. I got it on sale at petsmart right after christmas. The dogs actually were just in their sweaters no overcoats, once the fire got going. They cuddled up on their bed a few feet away and LOVED it. It is funny because at this point my dogs are very "fire smart". They are a little scared of it and move if the wind changes and smoke comes their way but they are comfortable cuddling up with their back so it. I wish I could have gotten a picture of it but it was dark out once they were being cute by the fire.




^I LOVE Joshua trees, they are so cool

We are going to try to get out camping a lot more this winter. Just being out for the weekend is so nice and I feel so much better during the week when I camp outside for even one day. Sadly Nova a can't come yet but I do a LOT of favors for friends with puppies so I am cashing that in now. There are several friends who "owe me one" for watching their puppies while they are still being house-trained. They will stop by and sit with Nova in the house for a few hours at night and in the morning while we are gone camping. She only ends up alone for a few hours at night and honestly she is most happy when she is alone in her pen anyway. I hope by next winter she will be out camping with us though!

So cool, I love camping. I was just at store and seen a 12 person tent for sale for $99.00. I called my husband and told him to stop and get one.

Looking good! Glad you had such a fun time, I love camping! Nothing better than chucking your stuff in the car on a weekend and just going anywhere!
How is Nova doing?x

Wow- thats a good deal! Watch out though- those big cheap tents cant take any wind at all. The first little gust and the poles just snap, but if you stay in really nice weather they are great. We have a one person backpacker, and two person backpacker, a 4 person survive in the arctic type tent and a 6 person "roomy" tent. The 6 person we just got and this is our first trip with it. There is something to be said about a tent you can stand up in!

Thanks- it was nice! We are going out again in two weeks if I have it my way! We will see if that trip actually materializes.

Nova is doing very well all things considered. Things are going extremely slow but she is moving in the right direction. Every week I ask a little bit more of her and she has been keeping up with my goals for her as long as I make them small. When I am upstairs in our loft looking down and she thinks she is alone with the other dogs she is really coming out of her shell. She loves to play and is just so smart. I can't wait to start seeing her real personality around me.

It's a good Swiss something heavy duty tent.

Love the camping pics! My husband & I have tent camped before, in our pre kids and dogs days. A couple of months ago, we realized a long-held family dream of buying our first RV--yay! We named her Jurnee. She's an old/mid 70's Class C, a definite fixer-upper but the price was so great we just couldn't pass it up. We're looking forward to taking her out in the Spring, and boondocking it as much as possible. Our chi Chica has been inside the RV, and had a good sniff around, but our newest rescue Ella (also a chi) has yet to see it.
That's so great to hear about Nova's progress!

I love camping in the tent. Nice to see you enjoying the outdoors with your dogs ! If we're not doing a ton of exploring we will take my Chihuahua - love having him on my lap in front of the fire, (but not too close).
