Actually just found a liter of Brittanies not to far from home. I am hoping to pick him up for my first camping trip of the season, the first week of Pa trout season. Thank every body for your replies. I just hope a 4 ft wide rd accommodates both of us.

Would if I could...bring a dog with me to camp. I have eight dogs to choose from:
  • Chloe, 5 years old, a 5 lb DORKY (half yorkie/miniature long-haired dachshund)
  • Scooter,15+ years?, a 15 lb SILKY TERRIER
  • Hank, 9 years, a 110 lb MIXED BREED (mastiff/hound?)
  • Bella, 6 years, a 80 lb BOXER
  • Sadie, 12 years, a 55 lb MIXED BREED (border collie with?)
  • Emma, 13 years, a 100 lb LAB/CHOW MIX
  • Bentley, 10 years, a 4 lb CHIHUAHUA,
  • BoBo, 11 years, a 10 lb MINIATURE LONG-HAIRED DACHSHUND.
Unfortunately, I can't do it. My personal dog is Chloe (Itty-Bitty) the Dorky (actually, I'm her personal human), who grieves when I'm away for a minute, but is hyper-sensitive to unknown sounds, and yaps until I can re-assure her (she also gets motion-sickness). She would wake everyone in camp at night. She's out. Bentley and BoBo, are also alert yappers;they're out, too. Scooter is more sedate, much older (age not known), but bosses everyone around, dogs and strangers and me. He'd miss his 'momma too. He's out. Bella is a very sensitive soul, with three feet, so she tries to overcompensate with barking more than the other dogs, and sometimes is aggressive to them (ornot, it depends on her moods). She's also afraid of everything new, and nature's forces, like wind, rain, frogs jumping, etc. She's out. Emma is mean, to everybody but us, though she is toothless. She's out. And poor Sadie, who was thrown out of a moving car as a puppy; I found her, with hardly any skin on her body, and with two broken legs, maggot-covered and dying, but I nursed her back to health over a period of six months (and 72 hours spent with her at the vets'). She's starting to fail now (the vet said she probably would have a shorter life, due to her unfortunate start). She needs to stay at home with one of us. Lastly, Hank is calm, agreeable, friendly to strangers (I brought him home from work, where he had been staying in the parking lot for two weeks, begging for food). I tried to get others to take him, but I alone, with 9 dogs at home at the time, was the only one that would. He is so glad to be here, he won't ever walk out of the yard. I have to carry him to the car, to go to the vets'. He doesn't particularly like dogs outside my dogpack (he had many old wounds when I saved him; vet says he thought he had been fought) So, I don't have any dogs I could take camping.My top three choices:

I camp with my French Brittany Spaniel, a great companion. He is very laid back and loves the tiny trailer. ...Hated tents...would growl and do a quiet half-bark all night long in the tent. But, he feels secure and doesn't do that in the trailer. Oh!...He takes up two thirds of the bed and I get the rest. :lol: (Shown on the upper part of the bed. The bottom part (where the legs go) of the bed pulls apart and tucks away.)

One of my neighbors had a Brittany that didn't like other dogs. I don't know how common that is.

Ae6, you and your Brittany should have plenty of room. My Lance (100lbs) and I camp in a 4 wide Little Guy

  • My wife and I have soft hearts for critters, because they give unconditional love. Once you take in a stray dog (cats, not so much), you're their friend for life. Over our 24 year marriage, we've had 1 field mouse (rescued from our head cat's mouth), 2 hamsters (they belonged to our dog Annie, who would sit and watch them for hours), 2 pygmy goats (my wife bought them at a flea market),3 birds (including the cockatiel who flew into our yard, and landed on my wife's shoulder),13 cats (12 of whom were strays, turning up at our house), and 16 dogs (one was my wife's since high school, three were rescued from my wife's pet-crazy niece, one was a gift to my wife, the remainder were rescues).
  • Earlier, in this thread, I listed the eight dogs we have now, and why I couldn't bring any camping with me. I listed them by name and breed, but I'll give details of how they came to us:
    Chloe, 5 years old, a 5 lb DORKY (half yorkie/miniature long-haired dachshund)(given to my wife to be a personal companion-but prefers me to my wife)
    Scooter, 15+ years?, a 15 lb SILKY TERRIER (found wandering the streets, with two crippled legs-from birth-covered with matted fur)
    Hank, 9 years, a 110 lb MIXED BREED (mastiff/hound?)(he was a stray, hanging around my work parking lot, begging for food; covered with cuts, I took him home on a cold NY Eve)
    Bella, 6 years, a 80 lb BOXER (some breeders accidently cut off one of her hind feet, closing a door; not saleable, they were going to put the 6 week-old pup down, but we heard about it, and brought her home)
    Sadie, 12 years, a 55 lb MIXED BREED (border collie with?) (poor Sadie, who I spotted lying in a clump of weeds by the country road, with two broken legs, fur half peeled away -somebody tossed her from a moving car-covered with maggots eating into her stomach; I rushed her to the vet, and spent months nursing her to health-the vet called her the Miracle Pup)
    Emma, 13 years, a 100 lb LAB/CHOW MIX (came from my wife's cousin, who was just going to dump her in the woods-at 4 weeks old)
    Bentley, 10 years, a 4 lb CHIHUAHUA (one of my wife's nieces many pets, neglected mostly, picked on by a PitBull, until we took him home)
    BoBo, 11 years, a 10 lb MINIATURE LONG-HAIRED DACHSHUND (belonged to a couple my wife knows; the husband didn't like him, so he was going to drop him off at the ranch, as coyote-bait)
  • Yep, rescue(d) dogs are the best!
