Yellowstone Dog Camp, Oh MY!

So much to do and so little time before Clooney and I head out tomorrow for...

DOG CAMP!

Every year, Clooney has a reunion with his extended poodle family (that's a blog post for another day!), and this year we are venturing to a dog camp at Yellowstone Dog Sports in Montana! 

What is dog camp, you ask? Well, I've never been, but as far as I can tell, it's Disneyland for dogs. There's sheep herding, agility, rally, dock diving, nosework, hiking, etc. etc. All the things that make Clooney, the happiest dog on earth.  

Most importantly, it's...

Bonding with your dog!

I've mentioned it before, and I'll say it again...if you have a dog (or any pet for that matter), take the time to have fun together. You won't regret it. Your life will get better. You will smile more. And, smiling more means you are happier. 

Speaking of fun...

After dog camp, we plan to tour Montana for another week, so I can show Clooney what I love about "God's Country". I LOVE Montana. There's nothing like it. It's beautiful and it's real. 

Obviously, I'm taking my camera and with any luck, Clooney will throw out his best material. If history indeed repeats itself, I'm sure I'll get a lot of pictures like these from a trip we took to Sunriver, Oregon last year...

 Clooney was  OUT. OF. HIS. MIND . happy. When he's happy, he looks like Dumbo, doesn't he?

 He looks pretty guilty to me...what do you think?

And, I'm hoping to get some shots like these...

And if luck will have it, I'll get another one like this....which happens to be my most treasured photo in my home today...
