Camping with a canine companion.....

We have just returned from a camping trip with friends at Bon Echo Provincial Park.  We had a super time.  We have never camped with a dog before but decided to bring Sophie along to see how it would work out.  It was fantastic.  She was really really good.  We went for long walks and they have a designated dog beach and off leash area which is very nice.  Shallow sandy water and lots of room for dogs and kids to swim :0)  We didn't end up taking too many photos but here are a few to sort of give you an idea.
Definately room for a family of four and a dog....or two or three or heck I'm sure you could fit at least four extra dogs in this tent - it's huge!!!! 
No they don't really shed but ummm it's almost the reverse effect.  Instead of leaving hair all over the place they collect all manner of debris in their coat.  Nice :0)  After a few shakes it does mostly drop out but I still have to give her a good brush out...There is a fair amout of sand still in there!
She sure slept well at night.  Three families and 6 kids all under the age of 7 makes for lots of fun and excitement but by the end of the day, just like the children, she was exhausted.  Gives new meaning to the expression "dog tired".
