Pug Campers Sullivan and Jake were treated to an Early Morno bath before checking out of Camp.
Camp-Run-A-Pup has been tail-waggingly busy this week, which is not unusual for the summer months. What is unusual are the cool summer morning temperatures. Cool weather means playful campers, so most mornings this week, my teen and I have made the short commute to the patio and started our day by cheering for our campers as they chase each other around the yard, along with throwing countless balls and frisbees that are dropped at our feet. We also take lots of pictures and videos * for our traveling pups families.
Susie and Fella are best camp buddies.

When our campers settle themselves for sun baths, we enjoy our laptops and smoothies. Have I mentioned how much I love my Ninja blender!
My teen, who has suddenly become a morning person (which doesn’t mean he’s not a night owl too, it’ll work itself out, he’s a young pup) and I banter about our commute to the patio (Scooby cut in front of me this morning on the way out,” “Lada was so slow”…), play the game of matching dog breeds with people that we know, and argue about the best smoothie combinations. When I answer the phone, Cole looks at me inquiringly, when he hears me say, “Your dog is social like an alligator?” It’s all good, especially when we dig through a bag of people-food a family dropped off along with their pup at check in—someone has to help with the fridge clean-out before vacation! Camp is Good!
Another camp highlight this week was the ^^ cake that Vickie, our friend and camp helper, modestly brought over for us to eat. Vickie is taking a cake-decorating class and made the chocolate cake above. When she told us that she wouldn’t eat it and asked us for our help, it was an offer we couldn’t refuse. Vickie insisted that the cake had flaws, but I can assure you that its only flaw was being almost too pretty to eat. I say “almost,” because, of course, we did eat it, and it tasted as good as it looked.
It’s August 1st! I hope you remembered to say “Rabbit, Rabbit” since I was remiss in reminding you. But if you forgot, just say it right now three times very fast, as you hop up and down, and you’ll have an awesome August!
Odd Loves Company,
