Ruth and Chris took some of the yearlings on their first Camp out. This is a 'big deal' for some dogs. It's sort of like a a troop of 9 year old Boy Scouts heading out into a National Park for the weekend. Away from Mom and Dad. Away from your bed. Away from heat, electricity and comfort. Oh my.
Our yearlings (and Ruth and Chris) had a good time. They camped out for several hours and mushed home on some challenging trails. The Yearlings had the following day off (The Mushers should have... but didn't!)
Here are some photos of the youngsters (Thanks Chris!)
R-L: Chevie, Bruno and Sanka stand near their straw beds whereas Ginger sits in her straw. Barista gets the camping idea! Good Girl!
This is the best photo! McCaw ~ the giant ~ and Bean ~ the pipsqueak ~ can't understand why they are sitting around near piles of straw with no dog houses nearby. Can you imagine their conversation?
