Barview Jetty ~ Campground Review

By Porter ~

While we have been to Barview Jetty before, we had a completely difference experience this year and I wanted to do a campground review on it. Mom and dad didn’t really want to go, after the pricing debacles of Webb County campground last month, they claimed it was too expensive for what you get. Last year we were on the end site, right next to the beach, which SHOULD have been wonderful, but it was very crowded, busy, and noisy with obnoxious people constantly hanging out in front of our camp. I was exhausted from having to be on patrol all the time.

A Weekend in the Lake – Crane Prairie Reservoir Campground Review

By Aspen ~

 

Okay, I have to start by saying I am SOOO glad mom and dad took us camping at Crane Prairie. It was a long drive to get there, but that was okay since it was a long weekend called 4th of July weekend. I don’t know exactly what that means, except that we go camping every year. Porter is terrified of all loud noises and, to be honest, I’m not a big fan of fireworks either, so it all works out for the best. This year we went with our Uncle Ken, Aunt Wendy, and cousins Lexi and Jenny and we were super excited because Uncle Ken got there a day early and got us a campsite right on the edge of the lake!

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.

Pet Safe Citronella Bark Collar Review – Part Deux

By ~ Porter

You may have read Aspen’s review of my bark collar experience and, lets just say she didn’t fare any better. I know mom & dad don’t want me to bark at the neighbor dog at home, but sometimes I just can’t help it. I’m a Border Collie, I am protecting the BORDERS! I’m not quite sure what they don’t understand about that, but I am really smart so I try to keep it to a minimum when they’re home, and save my primary border patrols for when they go to work. That is when I really need to protect things anyway!

How I Found My Forever Home

By Aspen – 

Yesterday mom and dad took Porter and I to get my first Christmas tree as a Delameter dog. Soon they tell me it’s going to be my birthday, which will mean I have lived with my forever family for one whole year! Boy, time sure does fly when you are living a wonderful life.  Like Porter, I don’t really remember much about my life before mom and dad found me at the Marion County Animal Shelter in Salem.  I think that is because something traumatic happened to have me leave my old home and end up at the animal shelter.

Dog Park Review – Hazelia Field Dog Park

By Porter –

Aspen and I love going to the dog park! She is pretty good about almost always coming when she is called, but no matter how hard I try, I just have a really hard time. I KNOW I should, I love my mom and dad and don’t want to run away, really, but I am a border collie and I must check out the entire area before I am focused on paying attention. Because of this, although I do like the hikes we go on all around town, I prefer to go to the fenced doggie parks. There I get to run and play with all the other dogs and am allowed off leash to do a proper perimeter check!

Introducing our New Guest Post Interview Series

By Aspen & Porter-

As we prepare to travel the world with our mom & dad, we are curious about other dogs already on the road with their parents. Do they enjoy the traveling? What are their biggest issues on the road? We are also asking for advice from our cousins and dog-friends who just travel domestically. What is important to them in hotel doggie amenities? Do they like the beach or the mountains more? We have been working on a list of interview questions before we reach out to some of our favorite dogs, and would love hearing any questions you would like to see answered as well.

A Tale of Coming Home

By Porter – 

Now that I’ve lived with mom and dad for over a year, I think it’s finally safe for me to talk about my scary time before I met them. You see, I don’t remember a lot of my previous life, and I think it’s because it was so stressful for me. For instance, I’m not sure how I ended up having to live on the streets, I just remember being picked up by some men, who were nice enough, but drove a very scary truck with a cage in the back and they put me back there! Next thing you know I was put into a different cage, in a building, and was terrified I was going to be stuck there forever! This all happened in some town they call Klamath Falls. It’s quite a long way from where I live now.
