Critter Camping 2016

Fresh from the Groomer

Hi my name is Nala.  Gypsy and LoneStar love to take me camping.

Most every campground we go to people have their pets with them.  All the parks we have visited have several rules that must be abided by:

All dogs on leash

No dogs left outside camper unattended.  Must be tied or kenneled.

Clean up after pet

Noisy and out of control pets are not tolerated.  All dogs bark to communicate but nuisciance barking is annoying to all others in the campground.

I was only 8 weeks old here and stayed in my kennel while we traveled.  I even slept there at night.  As long as I had toys I was happy.

They put a soft cushion between the seats and that’s where I lay while we were on the road.  I matured real fast and no longer needed the kennel along on trips.

Nala Making Friends
Nala Making Friends

I like to go camping and meet new friends.   So far, most dogs I met  in RV parks  are friendly but my Gypsy always asks the pet owner  if their dog is friendly towards people and other dogs.  Never assume, just because they have their dog in an RV park, that he/she is friendly.

I am not sure about this.  They put this vest on me.  Little did  I know it involved me going in the water.  I was only 10 weeks old here.

No body told me I would have to have baths while we were traveling.  Kate keeps me warm in a towel and dries me off.

Ever since I can remember, I love to play with sticks.  As I grow, so do the sticks (logs) I try and conquer.

Yes, I even like cats, although they don’t like me very much.  All I want to do is play.  This is Buddah.  We are up at the Albee’s Little Sand Lake Resort II.

On our way home from Green Bay, WI we made a stop at Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley. I was pretty young when Elvis was hitting stardom, and not one of his big fans.  However, I must say, after seeing Graceland and hearing of all the good causes Elvis contributed to, I do have a better appreciation for him.

Seeing where he lived was an awesome experience

Many guests  played pool here.  If you look closely, in the upper right corner right by the pocket, there is a tear.  This was caused by one of Elvis’ guests attempting to make a trick shot resulting in a tear to the felt.

Notice the walls and ceiling.  They are decorated in cloth.  It took three people ten days to completely cover this room in the material.  It was quite lovely and gave the room a warm, relaxing feeling.

This was one of Elvis’ favorite rooms.  The furniture was real unique and quite popular in the 70’s.

Elvis had a great love for horses and would often go riding with family and friends.  When they found out he was going riding they would want to join him.

Anyone who knows anything about Elvis knows that his music awarded him many gold records and other awards.  It was breathtaking to see all these hanging on the walls and encased in glass.  The man had great talent

Every concert Elvis performed at he always wore a very showy costume, whether it be beads, bangles, fringe or bling.  Above are just a few of the outfits he wore.

The trip to Graceland was unforgettable.  I am sure one day that we will revisit and once again be awed by the beauty of Graceland.

You have to start the game right with a tail gate party.  The neat part of tailgating, everyone shares their food and beverages.  It was fun to walk around and see how everyone was set up.
