Well, I've been doing some short hikes with Barkley, and I just took her on her first overnight backpacking trip. It was only a few miles in and then back the next day, but the biggest new thing was spending a cold night in a tent. She managed to have much more energy through the hikes in and out than I did, and she had no problem sleeping in a tent in cold weather! Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of her in or around camp since I left my camera on the side of the trail on the way in. Luckily it was still there on the way back the next day and I was able to snap a couple of extra pictures! Anyway, she recently hit the 6th month mark so I figured this would be something special to do together! I doubt she'll ever have as much fun again as she did on this trip!

It looks like you guys had a blast! I'm glad your camera was safely waiting for you... sounds like something I would do. Thanks for sharing the great pictures! I've only camped with Samantha once (I'm not a camping type of girl) and it pleasantly surprised me how well she did. Glad to hear you had a great time!

She's a beauty! I know she'd be happy sleeping anywhere as long as you are by her side. And make no mistake: the fun is just beginning!

Next time tie the camera to your wrist. We're gluttons for picture!

We did the tent thing with our previous Golden and she was fine. Honestly, I think as long as they are with their people, they are happy.

Love your pics!
