Kendall, the camping dog
The weather was gorgeous this weekend, so we decided to head out with the new trailer to Champoeg State Park. We didn't have reservations but figured that. because it was the end of October, it wouldn't be crowded - wrong. We got one of three spots left in the entire campground. Turns out everyone else had the same idea.
Kendall had a great time camping. She chased lots of leaves, met lots of people, and met some big dogs. She seemed right at home hanging out at the camp site. We took her for a long walk on her retractable leash, something that's hard to do in the neighborhood, and she walked about 5 times farther than we did - back and forth, back and forth.
She slept in her portable crate in the front of the trailer. Not a peep from her all night long. All the new things must've tired her out.
She seemed to love everything about camping except the fire. She didn't like the smoke or the popping. We had to call it an early evening and head in to watch Juno.
