My mom and dad like to camp. We go a couple of times every summer and I sort of like it. I was just getting over being a little sick this time so my energy level was a bit down. No mad puppy runs down the dusty road or into the trees. Thats OK, I enjoyed laying on someones lap and getting good belly rubs. We had the Kansas cousin, my human sissy and her 2 boys camping with us and we had a campfire and s'mores. I did get a taste of the marshmellows. Next time onward to a little town in Kansas named Garnett. We watched hydroboat racing and saw moms Illinois grandkids. I also had a reunion with "Harley" my spunky Chihuahua cousin Until next time,
Here I am surveying the camp site. Mom put a red blankie by our tent for me to lay on but I wanted to check out everything first.
I brought my bed from home...I was really very comfortable. Mom and Dad had a futon with a sleeping bag. In the middle of the night I had to go outside and pee....that was an adventure in itself. At home I just pop outside and go. At camping, I barked so mom had to wake up, find my harness, and take me outside in the pitch black. It was so starry.
It is so important to stay hydrated in the heat of the day. Mom was always putting a water bowl under my nose. Floating ice cubes....very refreshing
This is early morning, even though it is hot in the day, it is cold in the morning, I had to wear my fleece until the sun warmed stuff up. Everyone was having coffee and all I got was water again, at least it was in a camping cup.
My sissy and cousin washing their hair with the river water...bol. Mom said dirty camping hair is why hats were made. No way was she going to pour river water on her head!
Sitting in a chair is always a good thing. I can keep my eye on things.
We went on a little walk and I found a new friend...all the kids around like me cause I am so small.
I liked relaxing by the river.
This is the view from our camp site.
