The Dogwalkers

This past weekend, we went camping with several members of the truck camper club I belong to. Many of our members are more of the "grandparent" age or empty nesters. Dogs easily outnumber kids at most campouts. This time we had three youngsters in attendance and although they were a small group, they provided me and Karl with great happiness.

On Saturday, the two older girls wanted to walk a pair of golden retrievers that belonged to another couple. "Sure," they were told. The only problem was the younger brother. Three children, two dogs. "A" was the odd man out. He walked dejectedly back towards his camper with a big frowny face.

Hmmmm, we've got two dogs and they love to go on walks. So we volunteered Jelly for a walk. Karl went to get the young man and I retrieved Jelly's leash from the camper. The smile on A's face was gigantic when he found out he would have a dog to walk, too.

One Happy Camper!

Those kids just made our weekend all that much better.

How fun! And I do love the smile on his face! Sounds like a great weekend! Hope you're having some sun - we are, not sure how long it will last -- looks like more rain next week, but then the forecast changes hourly!! Have a great day, Sally!

What a sweet smile! I love the picture of the three of them running off happily. Being someone who can rarely get away from the children, it's good for me to be reminded that they are a treasure, too.
