Camping in the Poconos with Dogs

Camping in the Poconos with Dogs
 

Last week I started to recap my annual camping trip with my friend, Shilah the Husky, well now I’m back to share more about all the fun we had (despite the rain). It’s too much fun to fit into one blog post, so don’t worry, there’s even more fun than this to come ahead!

One of my favorite parts about camping is getting breakfast in bed. It’s one of those few occasion where I don’t even have to get up to enjoy a big bowl of my “cereals”.

Shilah and I were excited to see that the weather had begun to clear up some, and although the rain was on and off, it wasn’t down pouring all day like it had been. Yipee!

So we broke out the fishing poles again, and had a little contest with our dad’s to see who could catch the most fish. (spoiler alert, none of us caught any!)

That’s ok though, because there was still plenty to do on our camping trip, like hiking! We didn’t get to go to any of the great hiking spots we had staked out for our trip, but we did get to take some walks around our campsite.

We even stopped to take a few selfies along the way, it’s not often I get to spend 4 whole days with my pal!

There may have even been an awkward kiss at one moment. It’s still out for debate on who kissed who.

Do you blame me though, I mean how can you not sneak a kiss when you’re hanging out with a pretty girl like Shilah!

Back at camp things were starting to heat up since it was finally dry enough to start the campfire.

As our day started to come to an end Shilah and I broke out our Glowdoggies * so we could have our own personal “flashlights” in the dark. Although Shilah questioned, “won’t the bears just be able to spot us way easier with these things on?” I told her not to worry, I packed bear spray!

As darkness really crept in the campfire started roaring!

That’s always my cue to hit the hay early, because campfires (or any fire for that matter) are not really my jam. That’s ok though, I much prefer snuggling up in the tent under my sleeping bag anyway.

I am a little sad I did miss out on the light writing fun everyone had with sparklers, but mom and dad made sure to include me in their own special way…

Even celebrities like me can totally get down and dirty on a camping trip!

Stay tuned this week as I still have more fun to share about our adventures at a nearby lake!

P.S. Special thanks to Shilah’s mom from Mrs. Dailey’s Classroom for sharing some of her camping photos with me (the ones not watermarked with my website)!

    Wow! How long did it take you to get your name must right? That is way cool!

  7. Amanda & Barbarella07-08-15

    That is so neat the way your name is written in the dark with a sparkler. I love the picture of you and Shilah with the sky in the background. I try to get pictures of my dachshund like that but sometimes she just doesn’t stand still (plus it’s hard to get down to her level too).

    What an amazing trip! Ammo and Shilah look like amazing friends – have they always gotten along? We’re thinking of adding a small husky girl to our family which consists of a dachshund. Looks like you’ve managed to get them coexist wonderfully! 🙂

      Away from anyone’s “home” me and Shilah get along fine. But truthfully we are both dominant dogs (breeding aside, it’s just our personalities), so food & toys are kept away when we are together so we don’t fight with each other (which has happened) over possessions. I’m also not a big fan when Shilah comes to my own house, because it’s my space and she’s invading (other less dominant dogs I have no problem with). Mostly I just sulk with the fact that she’s in my space. But that’s just my own experience on the matter. I have noticed when in public and I run into other huskies, they tend to stare me down like prey. I guess cuz I’m small!
