Never-Before-Seen (Cedar Chest) Cardigan: Jon Farleigh & Dewi Go to Doggy Camp on a Farm

So tomorrow, for only the second time in their 2.6 years of life, Jon Farleigh and Dewi are going to overnight doggy camp (while we humans take a short, much-needed no-pet vacation).

I'm not one bit nervous, though, because there's a gem-of-a pet boarding facility, tucked away on a farm that borders a Virginia scenic byway, within a few miles of my home.

Truthfully, I fully expect the dogs to have a blast (which should quell any pang of guilt that creeps up while I'm doing the same)! Wheeeeee!

Please accept my apology for not revealing our vacation destination (just yet), but I will tell you this: We will have no shortage of animal interaction (at least part of the time)!

And in light of these upcoming adventures, I thought it would be appropriate to re-publish something I wrote two Thanksgivings ago (on, before this blog even existed) after driving Jon Farleigh and Dewi to their first-ever doggy overnight camp experience.

Happy Thanksgiving!

See you all next week! 

P.S. My blog writing has come a long way since November 2010, don't you think? I mean how could I have just cut off the song parody mid-verse?? How rude! ;-)


  1. we like your baby jail cells, BOL
    Hope you had fun
    Benny & Lily

  2. I hope you have fun on your trip! :)

  3. Bah! I hate doggie camp. The first time I went I made myself sick so they had to call my mommy and daddy. I hope you're having a great time! :)

    By the way... GREAT pic for my 'Dogs in Cars' series! ;)

    Woofs & huggies, <3

  4. Have fun at camp guys and we hope your peeps have a good time too. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. It's great to have a place to leave the dogs where you have no worries! We are going on vaca soon and hopefully my sis will be able to watch our pup. We've never been away from her since we brought her home in January, so I'm not sure how she'll do. We are going to do a trial run one night and see how she does there. If she doesn't do well... I'll be looking for a doggy "camp" for my gal.

    Have a great vacation! Look forward to hearing about it.

  6. Hi Y'all!

    Just trying to get around and visit all my friends I've been missing. Hope y'all are havin' a great day!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
