Solo Camping — Me and My Dog



Just an observation about solo camping in the T@B with my dog. I was worried that she would be bored or my life would be too confusing with her needs to take care of as well as my own. But of course, having her along is absolutely essential. And while she did miss her friends back home, she was not bored. There are so many interesting things to look at and smell. She was on high alert at all times, especially when the deer and wild boar came into the campsite. Here we are taking an early morning walk on the lake pier. I ended up walking more than I do at home, and that is a good thing. And she made me feel safer.

    Me_and_My_Dog, From my experience of camping with several different dogs, it's as much [if not more] of an adventure for them as it is for you. The more you have her along, the more accustomed she'll become with the routine stuff. Cool dog by the way!

    Read an article recently about dogs and cats. The jist was that cats attach to their environment and the owner is secondary whereas dogs attach to their owner so as long as the owner is there, the dog will be happy - here's to happy dogs :-)

    I don't think I would be exaggerating if I said I had photos, in the hundreds, of Rocky last summer on all of our adventures. He loved it. And he doesn't take up much space. =)

    Yeah Jenn, but even his name suggests he's made for camping... Rocky! He's tough, considerate and not afraid of anything. He knows you drive his camper, your his valet, butler, door-opener, and can (bag) opener! The boy ain't stupid! He's got it made in the shade :)

    Edit: Ok, that's it.... I'm coming back as Jenn's dog!

    Jack and I travel together each summer to get out of the Texas heat.  He has figured out the routine and loves the attention he gets from everyone.  I try to make life a routine as possible for him within the limits that our camping life sets - wouldn't want to do it without him.

    What a beautiful Bernese! Black dogs look better in the shade :) We are getting the better part of a foot of snow here tonight. Jack would love it!

    I bred Tibetan Terriers, TTs, and that is why i used the name TTT@b.  I don't know what size this photo is.  I tried to figure it out.  This is my baby Jitterbug, CH Shey's Divine Dancin in June.  She will be my T@B traveling partner.  I hope that next winter I will be in a warm climate and not have to brush snow out of her coat!

    TTs love snow. It is hard to get them to come inside. But then try to get them to go out into the rain!!!

    Toby loves to ride..his favorite past time is barking at bikers in my ear at full throttle..he's the ultimate back seat driver but a good traveler. 
    this summer will be his first traveling with Poppy in the T@B..we go to Colorado to get out of the Az. Heat..
    Toby is 2 on 6/22/17. He's a crate dog at home..interesting to see how does sleeping in the trailer ....

    My only concern with Jitterbug is how will I go and do things and leave her at camp.  As a dog show person the tragedies  I have heard regarding the heat and air conditioning giving out.
