Happy canine campers
I’ve been wanting to go to dog camp in Vermont with C-Biscuit and Machu Picchu (and Bob, of course!). But it costs more than Sesame, so for sure isn’t in the budget this year.
In the meantime, we decided to do-it-yourself dog camp by taking the pups camping in the Catskills. It’s not as social as dog camp – for them or us – but still tons of fun, for a very low cost!
We hiked into the clouds ascending Slide Mountain
Retracing the steps of writer John Burroughs
And the next day took an excursion up Cornell Mountain
The pups often needed a helping hand to get up the rock faces (this was easier when they were wearing their Ruffwear harnesses)
But the views atop Cornell Mountain were worth it!
Our luxe accommodations included a "pup tent" with doublewide sleeping bag and detached kitchenette
Picchu enjoyed a close encounter with wildlife (interestingly, the Bee smelled just like home!)
Activities included "Rock climbing"...
Morning "doga" by the river...
And on the third day, a bit of rest
