The Dirty Dog Camping Trip

Fall break has finally come!!!!!  This is one of the reasons I don't complain TOO much about going back to school in July.  We get awesome breaks every season of the year.

This past weekend M and I went camping with old friends from back home.  Our camping spot was in the National Forest near Charlottesville at a place called Crabtree Falls.  Weatherwise it was pretty decent.  We got a tiny bit of rain, but that probably kept some people away....which is a good thing.

I ate way too much junk food, which we don't keep at home, and then was too full to eat the extraordinary food my friend cooked on the campfire. Doofy, I know.

This is one of my friend's six pooches and he was one of three that joined us this weekend.   Sebastian is 14 years old.  My friend says that he is blind, deaf, and somewhat senile.  At home he spends most of his days sleeping.  At camp, however, this fellow wandered all over the place.  He probably wandered as much as he slept.  Occasionally he bumped into something, but he got around pretty well.  We often caught site of him just rolling around like crazy on his back.  Furry critter that he is, when he got back up he would be covered in leaves and dirt.  He looked like a dirty dog Christmas tree.

I had a great time visiting with friends.  Often I felt like rolling around for joy in the dirt as well.
