Camping with the Pups

We're off on our first camping weekend with both Kodi AND Pixel. Kodi, of course, is an old hand at camping, but not Pixel! She is SUCH a little star. She learned how to go in and out of the camper in one try, has been using her litter box totally reliably without reminders from us, and settled down to sleep in her crate tonight without a wimper.

We did decide that with two dogs, especially with one being a small puppy, that the tie-out we use for Kodi while camping just wasn't a great option. So Dave cut plastic lattice to go around the steps, and we used ex-pens to make a nice, big area where they can roam around without us worrying about them. We have the oicnic table, our chairs and their beds inside the pen too, so we can all ahng out together!

You have it down to a science Karen. Good job. The pups look like happy campers.

What a perfect setup. Looks like Kodi has already claimed the bed!

Well, that IS his bed... It's the one he sits on when in his car harness in the teuck, and we also call it his "camping chair" since it matches ours in color. He's had it since he was a puppy, and it was made for him by his "Grandma Pam". we got out a nice plush folded up blanket for her so they both have separate spots if they want them, but a lot of the time, Kodi lets her curl up against him.
