Yeah. We got involved in camping specifically because we wanted to travel with our dogs. They used to stay home at the kennel while we traveled on cruise ships or airliners.

Now we don't leave home without them. More fun for us and for them. And traveling is so much less of a hassle. We know whose pillow we're putting our heads on, and we don't mind sharing that pillow with a dog.

Darn, every time I see this thread pop up on the "recent discussions" list I come here looking for a picture!




Remember, no pics? didn't happen!

In this case; no pics? No such thing as a codopi!

Awww he's adorable!

I'm gonna say he's beagle and doxy, or bassett and doxy.

Those front feet are definitely doxy.

We started camping just so we could take our pets with us. A boxer 70#, a yorkie 5# and a rabbit 5#. The dogs are both 10+ years old with the Boxer having trouble with the steps. The Yorkie is easy enough lifted in and out but the boxer is another story. Been thinking about some sort of ramp for her very soon.

Awwwww so cute.... We also are just getting into camping and major considerations are in place for our senior dog. I would use a ramp, in our case she is small so we carry her when shes tired, also because she cant see that well.....Click image for larger version

Since my last post about our dogs and steps I have carpeted the steps inside the 5r with a runner from Home Depot. For now both dogs can navigate the inside steps without slipping and sliding. Bought a runner long enough to cover the steps and the landing in front of the bathroom up to the bedroom door. Bought some camco carpet for the outside steps held on with springs, our Boxer can manage those for now but I do see some sort of ramp in our future. The Yorkie is easy enough to hoist and handle but the boxer is another story.
