One Tired DoggyLast weekend, S and I went camping to celebrate his birthday. We were supposed to go on Friday and come home on Saturday, but the forecast said rain, so we switched the weekend around and spent Saturday celebrating Mother's Day with my parents, and headed camping on Sunday.
For Mother's Day, we cooked a huge pile of steak. Abby took it upon herself to guard the steak, just in case anything happened to it...
(The steak is on the table. Can you tell?)
Later on, Abby got her dinner - doggy food. She was less than thrilled - she kept looking at us, looking at it, and giving a huge sigh. It's really too bad dogs can't talk, because I had NO idea that she was saying "I can't believe you expect me to eat this crap while you guys oink it up with all that steak."
But we made up for the "doggy food trauma" on Sunday when we headed to the campground...
She hunted in Big Meadow...
We roughed it back at the campsite...
We tried out our new camp stove (next trip, we're going to make pancakes... yum!)
For dessert, we suffered through some petit pain au chocolat..
... and Abby helped guard the tent.
On Monday, we took a great hike to see a waterfall - it was so lush and green... I guess I'm more used to seeing the forest in the middle of summer!
And guess who hiked the entire 3.2 miles (downhill then straight uphill) with us?
I think it finally tired her out... she had a snack, and then passed out while S and I ate some lunch. Then, when we got in the car to head home, she was too sleepy to stick her head out the window and sniff...
