Camping

The back of Three Dogs sitting in grass and looking out to a parking lot full of trucks and a Tiger Adventure Vehicle RV built on a Ford truck pulling a camper.

The pack goes on another trip. This time camping in the middle of nowhere. On the way we stop at a rest stop to gas up and gas out. The pups wait to be picked up after doing there business and filling the RV tank.

Three dogs are eating food out of a metal bowl in a parking lot.

Before getting back in the RV they all get a drink of water.

A Tiger Adventure Vehicle RV camper is parked in a field. Two Dogs are digging around in dirt. In the background there is a person starting a fire.

We're here! Time to set up camp.

Mia, no-no. Leave the mower alone. We have to cut the grass around our camp area.

Two dogs are standing around on a camp ground. There is smoke coming up from a fire pit. There are cars, four wheelers and a trailer in the background.

Some other campers showed up to camp with us. When they first arrived Mia let out a little bark and was hushed.

The campers brought all kinds of things for her to watch, quads, motorcycles, a tractor, grills etc. Mia watched them unload. Then she decided to go visit them. She happily trotted down and wiggled all around as she got pet.

Finally, Mia crashes.. "Mom can you get my jacket?" "OK" thinking Sara is cold.

Nope, the jacket was for Mia. Sara, if you keep folding that ear down it will never stand all the way up like her other one does.

We are making great progress with Mia's first reaction of barking at unknown things. Mia did awesome the entire trip. She took everything in stride, more looking curiously at things instead of barking.

Bringing out the Grizzly Bear

Mia the 10-month-old American Bully looks like a little trouble maker as she plays with Spencer the American Pit Bull Terrier. Spencer rarely barks, and more often sounds like a grizzly bear.

Present from the Cats

A person is holding a dead Blue Jay above the head of a blue nose American Bully Pit dog who is attempting to sniff it.

No, you can't have the bird, even if the cat's are willing to share.

Guard Dog and the Unknown

A blue nose American Bully Pit is standing on a tiled floor and looking at a pot of tomato sause on a stove.

I was cooking a pot of spaghetti sauce. As Mia walked by, the pot popped as sauce spit smacking into the lid. Mia stopped, looked up at the stove and let out a quiet half bark. "No, hush" I told her. The pot did it again and she let out a very quiet growl, still looking up at the stove. She is too short to see the pot itself. "No!" Mia sat down leaning against the back of my leg as I stirred the sauce. She tilted her head backwards and looked at me. She still didn't know what it was, but mommy told her to hush. She was going to stay here just in case I needed some back up.
