Dolls & Dogs

Last week, I went camping with my friend, Mary, and our 4 dogs.  We found a campground that was equidistant to both of us:  Sandy Beach Regional Park.  Mary’s dogs, Chester and Janie had just returned from “puppy camp” to see how Janie reacts to a kennel situation since Mary and her family are going to Australia for 3 weeks.  Janie is a 9-year-old rescued Goldenoodle.  She’s very timid.  She spent her reproductive years as a puppy mill breeder.  Chester developed kennel cough while at “puppy camp.”  Mary phoned her vet to see if he’d pose a threat to Daisy.  The vet was concerned about our little old lady, but so far it doesn’t seem like she contracted it.  All 4 dogs had their kennel cough vaccines.

The weather was incredibly hot, but the lake was refreshing for all of us.  However, Daisy stayed behind in Mary’s air-conditioned trailer.

 Does Mary’s Airstream make my boler look bigger?

Chester kept trying to leave our fenced “circle of love,” so he had to be leashed. 

Where am I going to sleep?  The boler is very cozy with 2 dogs.  Fortunately, the nights were cool and the day’s heat had dispersed by bedtime.   
On our last night, we had 2 violent storm systems move through.  Many poplars lost branches in the campground.  This was the red sky in between storms.


Mary gave Poppy Zylkene to reduce her anxiety.  It worked.  She slept through the second storm.  However, we had moved into the boler for the second storm, and then Daisy could hear the thunder and see the lightning, so she was stressed.  I’ll be getting prescriptions for both of them.

  1. You painted the Boler !! Easy for you by yourself . Mary has the Aluminum , trick . i hope the dogs don’t come down with something serious . A golden -doodle , nice combo . Personality and less shedding . Don’t park by trees …. from experience ….


    • No. The boler isn’t painted yet. It’s shiny on top from the rain, and you can’t see the bottom well in the pictures — it still looks like a “rat rod” boler!
