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!
