Camping with Babies

I must tell about our experience of camping with babies.

Our babies are our two cute dogs. They are mixed breed and I have no idea how much mixed they are. Trixie is the black and white one. Angel is the beige and black one. They are two of the most wonderful dogs I have ever known.

Until the camping experience, that is. Trixie had never been camping. She was pretty good. She travels well and sleeps most of the time on the road. Angel travels well and looks out the window a lot. Angel used to camp with us and two other dogs we had.

At the state park campground, they both turned into something else! Trixie was a basket case. She had to look at everyone and everything that went by. Angel found little spots to lay in...with her back to us. She kept trying to pull me away from the campsite when we went for potty break. Luckily, we had to have a leash on both because of the state park rules. Angel would have been on her way home if she wasn't on a lead!

It's funny how changing a routine can change the personalities of your dogs. We'll be taking a few more outings before the end of the year.

Wish me luck!
