Our camping trip with the dogs

First I have to say that my dogs are very tolerant of the car and of each other.  If they were not so tolerant, this trip would not have been possible because our car was fully packed and they were a bit squished together in the back seat.



You can see River there behind Fin.  They are very good puppies. 








We went out to a spot called Jubilee Lake in North Eastern Oregon.  It was gorgeous. 


Since we do have two labs, we were there for the water and there was plenty of it with a 90 acre lake just a short stroll from our campsite.
 
 


After hiking halfway around the lake on a hot day the dogs couldn't wait to jump in. 







 




 We had one unexpected visitor show up at our campsite and she expected to be fed, well until the dogs noticed her and started their defensive barking.  :)  It was their first time seeing a deer, and their second too as she showed up the next morning looking to see if we had left anything out for her. 


Camping with my dogs and my husband is a lot of fun, and a great way to spend a vacation.  I hope your summer trips are as fun and adventurous as ours.

Yea for summer!

Today is the first time we got to take out the pool to cool off the pups.  You can tell a labrador's favorite thing on a hot day is a very cool pool.   Remember your dog needs as much hydration as you do on these hot days.
