Canine Corner: For today’s post Bridget and Reggie take you with them on a favorite trail near our camp.
“Okay, Miss B. I’ll try. When I get excited, my legs, they go fast and it’s hard to stop ’em.
“I sure do, Miss B! I’m trying real hard. I guard our camps and I bark at those mean ol’ cows . . . and RVSue says I’m a good boy in the PTV, too.”
“Sure. Part of being a boondocker is enjoying nature. Taking the time to appreciate the world around you. If you’re running and hopping and barking, well, that’s okay some of the time, but too much of that and you miss stuff.”
“Good gracious. I’ve been meaning to talk to you about your language. Where did you ever pick up bad words like that?”
“I dunno. . . . Wait! There was this guy I knew. I forget his name. Uh, let’s see . . . Winnie . . . no, Vinnie! That’s it! His name was Vinnie and he was my pal when I was lost on the streets. He showed me how to be a tough guy.”
“I see. He taught you to use those words. Do you know which words I mean, Reg?”
“Yes, ma’am. Oh, look! There’s our camp!”
“I sure do! Boy, if Vinnie could see all this . . . !”
“I need a break. Let’s stop here for a rest in the shade.”
“Good. Go play.”

Poor Vinnie. I wonder how the ol’ guy is doin’ . . . .
“Wow, Miss B! Look at this #@*% place! It’s so $&%# big!”
“Oops, sorry. I forgot.”
“We’re almost home. Boy, I could use a drink.”
“Me, too. I’m thirsty. We walked FAR.”
“You can say that again.”
“Shhhh . . . . No talk. Just look at it and experience the moment, Reg, and be grateful for what we have.”
