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.
Mommy and daddy have taken us to Pacific City twice in the last month and I am still not sure whether I like it or not. On the one hand, the beach IS just across the street from the campground, but it seems to be very popular and because there are so many people, cars, and other dogs on the beach, mom and dad don’t let me to run off leash like I want. I know that I should come to them every time that they call, but I just get so distracted sometimes that it’s hard to remember.
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.
