Peace’s Tail
by Peace

Hey y’all. This is Peace. I’m a dog. You probably have seen some pictures of me on the stuff my human posts online. I had an awesome trip last week and I thought you might like to know about it.

We went camping, the two-legger and me. We went up to Minnesota to a place called The Boundary Waters Canoe Area. It’s very nice up there and really quiet. We drove up after work on a Saturday and stayed for a week. I have been up there before, but this was the first time it was just my dad and me. We canoed around during the day and slept in a tent at night. There were a few trails we walked on, but I was a good boy and listened and never went too far ahead. Fortunately, well before this trip ever happened, my pops took the time to train me so I could be safe on the trails.

I met a few new friends…well, they were pretty shy. There was some little dude that looked like a miniature squirrel. I think dad called him a chipmunk. Anyway, those little critters didn’t want to play. There was also some kind of bird that teased me on a trail. We didn’t hit it off either…

I think my favorite part of the trip was sleepin’…er, uhm riding in the canoe. I tell you, I never slept so good as when the two-legger paddled us around in the canoe. As soon as I got in that boat, I had the best nap of my life, and I know a thing or two about naps.

The whole week, we had awesome weather and lots to eat. I got to eat wild blueberries, fresh fish that my dad caught and this special freeze dried stuff. It was quite tasty. I think I talked my dad into selling it at Bark Avenue. You’ll have to ask the folks about it. It’s called The Honest Kitchen. I just called it awesome.

Speaking of awesome, the awesome weather didn’t hold out the entire time. We did get rained on one day. Fortunately, we were able to get a shelter up and dry out. I tell you what. I got pretty cold, but my pops gave me his sleeping bag and I warmed up nicely…and had another really nice nap there.

So, all in all, I liked camping. We got to see some great new places, met a few new buddies and enjoyed the fresh air. If your dog can be safe an listen to you, I highly recommend you try taking him out to the great outdoors. You both will love it!
