Both Zach and I are incredibly outdoorsy and we knew that we wanted whatever dog we adopted to be adventurous too. But that is unfortunately not something you can exactly screen when you’re looking for a dog to adopt. With Dahlia, we got lucky. So, so lucky. She seems to take everything in stride and is happy as long as she is with us.
Long car rides? No problem. We have converted the back seat of the truck into a giant dog bed and she alternates between napping in the back or hanging out with us by leaning on the center console.
Within our first month of getting her, we took her on her first camping trip. Since it was October in the rockies, the conditions were a mix of sun and snow, with overnight temperatures dropping down to 0.
We had a pretty awesome set up with one big mattress and a huge pile of blankets, and Dahl slept pretty peacefully snuggled inbetween the two of us all night. I can’t wait to get her out for more camping trips next year!
Below are some of my favourite pictures from the camping trip. Drop any ‘camping with dogs’ tips you happen to have in the comments 🙂
