Rest of Friday!
Yippee!! We made it to Dog Camp! It was a looooong drive to Lake Wenatchee State Park where Maian Meadows Dog Camp is held at the Camp Fire Camp of Camp Zanika. I LOVE going to Dog Camp! This camp, directed by Rebecca and her dog Finn McCool (and now side kick Conall) is a camp for dogs and their people and “just for fun”! Dogs come from all over and Pacific North West to play with their people, other dogs, play games, fetch, swim, hike eat camp food… just have a great time. www.maianmeadows.com
You should check it out and maybe join us some time!
Anyway, Mama and I have been attending camp for years with our pals Ginny and Cross Tie, every June and September. It is most fun a dog can have!
So I was very excited to get here. First thing I had to do was jump in the lake for a good swim and game of fetch. After greeting Rebecca and other old friends, off we went for a hike to the Hidden Lake. I got to run and chase squirrels and jump in the lake. Wow! Three different lakes today! This morning I was in Lake Coeur d’Alene then this afternoon Lake Wenatchee and Hidden Lake! I am a swimming kind of dog!
After a brief rest while Mama unpacked and got our bunk area set up, we met up with the rest of the campers for dinner.

|The camp cook made some great meals!|
The humans get to eat in the dining hall, it sure smells good, but us pups have to stay outside. What’s with that? Anyway, Mama always brings me a treat to go with my dinner.
We had a nice fire after dinner, some more visits, I got lots of petting and massages while Mama roasted marshmallows, then off to bed for some needed rest. Well, Mama needed it, not me…. Well, maybe a little rest…

Woke up early for a hike with the group up to Hidden Lake again! WooHoo! What a fun hike, chase squirrels, swim in the lake. The log “bridge” across the creek got destroyed over the winter, so the humans would not cross through the water to get to the best swim/fetch area. So we played in the not so good area before heading back for breakfast. Had to stay outside again. Sheesh.

Then: GAMES!! There are lots of fun games with our humans and we get prizes and treats! We played doggy “baseball” and “lick the peanut butter” and “pooper scooper” and “dress up” and other silly games. It is a lot of fun!

You go, Hal!

Then we played lots of fetch in the lake. I love to fetch sticks in the lake. The water is cold and Mama makes me stop when I am shivering so hard I can hardly stand. But then we go hiking to warm me up so I can play in the lake some more!
After lunch, more games, another hike, dinner and the evening show! Mama always does a slide show and the humans have limerick and song contest and we all get a gift from Rebecca. Including lots of little treats. Yummy!
Back to bed for Mama needs some rest again. Silly humans.

|Lokie says "You can still donate to the wonderful animal organizations!"|
Our total walking only came to about 70 miles, not quite our goal, but we have proven that “we may be seniors, but we are not old yet”… but maybe not quite as young as we were! That’s ok. We are still going strong and enjoying life and helping two wonderful organizations with your nice donations. Super thanks to all of you! And remember: you can still donate!
That’s all for now!
Your puppy pal, Karoo
PS from Stacy: This is a sight never seen before... Karoo asleep in the car!! It only lasted about 10 minutes, quite amazing...
