Dachshund Goes Camping in the Rain

Dachshund Goes Camping in the Rain
 

Tent Camping in the Rain with Ammo the Dachshund

Every year I go tent camping with friends during the summer. It’s a fun trip (filled with dog friendly adventures) that I look forward to all year long!

Especially since I get to spend all weekend with this lovely lady, my pal Shilah the Husky!

This year’s camping trip was a little different, because when I woke up on Saturday morning it was raining. And not just a little bit of rain, it POURED ALL-DAY-LONG!

The rain sort of put a damper on all the fun activities we had planned, but lucky for me mom packed my raincoat, and I wasn’t going to let the wetness stop me from having a good time.

The campsite we rented this year came with a bare-bones rustic cabin (although I always tent camp!), and thankfully the porch provided the perfect haven for lounging during the heavy rain.

Eventually we all started to get cabin fever though, and when the rain lightened up just a bit it was time to venture out for some outdoor fun (with our raincoats of course).

Even my camera crew dressed appropriately for the weather – so that I would have all these great pictures to share with you!

Our campsite had this neat stream that ran through it, and I quickly discovered my new favorite activity…..FISHING!

Consider my mind fully blown when Shilah’s dad actually caught a fish!

And then when the fish we caught got released back into the water I couldn’t help myself from starting my own rescue mission. I mean he might drown!

I never did succeed, hopefully Mr. Fish was a good swimmer!

After a full day in the cold wet rain we all were a bit soggy, myself included.

So we had to make a trip into town to dry off, get food (for the folks that didn’t eat dog food), and make a walmart run for more rain gear!

After all my excitement in the rain I was pretty pooped. Thankfully my tent was nice and dry, and the perfect haven to rest up for another day of camping fun!

Stay tuned next week when I continue my adventures in the woods, where I even made a trip to the lake!

P.S. Special thanks to Shilah’s mom from Mrs. Dailey’s Classroom for all the great photos of our soggy camping experience (the ones not watermarked with my website)!Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

    My old man LOVES the water!!! He splish splashes for hours and the only way to get him out of his pool is by emptying it; then we call him our little water buffalo because his is full of water!!
