The Black Dogs are Hitting the Road!

By Aspen & Porter ~   Recently mom & dad took us on a LONG road trip! When we first got in the truck we thought we were just heading out for our typical weekend camping trip. Instead, we spent days and days driving through FIVE states. It was a lot of time on the road! We are still processing all that happened in those 17 days, but we did learn two things. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE spending extended time with mom and dad, and we LOVE living in the camper.

Dog Days at the Beach

By Porter ~

We spend a lot of time at the beach. And we love it, but we had a good talk and want mommy and daddy to know that we would like to go camping somewhere new next time. I know we’re planning to go on some big trip to a place called Overland Expo in May, but in the meantime I think a new camping adventure would be good.

Campground Review – Nehalem Bay State Park, Oregon

By Porter –  If we had to choose a favorite campground by number of visits, Nehalem Bay State Park would be the certain winner! On the Oregon coast, Nehalem Bay is a typical Oregon State Park, featuring well-maintained sites, good facilities, and a variety of dog friendly activities. What I like best about Nehalem Bay is that there are often large herds of Elk that come through the campground between the actual campground and the beach. This makes for EXCELLENT smelling and marking opportunities. There is a wonderful 4 mile long spit of beach to play on and, even better, at one end is the town of Manzanita. They love dogs there and have many restaurants with outdoor seating as well as a wonderful pet store, Four Paws on the Beach that I like to browse and check out new toys.
