Spring Fling 2010

This past weekend we went camping at an annual gathering of vintage trailers and friends. It poured down rain! It poured and poured all day on Friday as everyone was arriving and setting up. It was held in the field of some very nice friends of ours. As the day wore on it got muddier and muddier and the ruts got deeper and deeper. They had to bring out lots and lots of boards so that people could drive in on them. Sometime Friday night/Saturday morning the rain tapered off but picked up again on Saturday night. I usually take lots of pictures at these events, but the weather didn't cooperate too much. I have lots of great pictures in last year's post. Many of the same trailers were there, as well as some new teardrops, too.

Rather than focus on the weather, I decided to focus my few pictures on the dogs that were there camping.
This is Pepper, a tri-color Cavalier, who is missing the brown coloring. He's blind in one eye, but don't tell him - he doesn't know it.

This is Mandy.

This is Corky. He's a golden retriever/cocker spaniel mix.

I don't remember this dog's name, but he sure looked comfortable hanging out in his own chair. Don't you love the coat? It makes him look like Count Dracula with a cape.

Kendall wasn't too thrilled with the entire camping in the rain and cold thing. She was much happier in the trailer, wrapped in her blanket, with the heater going. She's more the leisure model than the sporting model.

This is more like her type of camping - hanging out in her bed on the deck by the fire pit. I can't blame her.

There were quite a few more well-behaved dogs there, but I didn't get around to take pictures of everyone. Maybe next year.

Don't worry Kendall we're not all made to be outdoorsy...some of us just love the finer things in life...especially when we have Mothers that spoil us. Enjoyed seeing all your doggy friends though...that spaniel cross retreiver is a funny looking one.

Kendall looks SO funny in the grass. I can just picture her saying "Mommy, it's time to go, NOW!". Pepper is so cute. My friend Cathy just adopted a tri rescue who's missing his tan.
