All of you know about Moragon (I introduced her in the first Meet the Campers post here. ). Normally she is only with Daddy, but sometimes she's a pet as well (remember to take her badge off before petting her!). She can be just as goofy as any other two year old and she goes with us almost everywhere we go. She goes grocery shopping, eating out, almost everywhere at this point. And yet, when she's playing "pet", she wiggles and runs, barks and wags, and lets little campers lay their heads on her.
Shadow is our other canine companion. He doesn't have a "helper dog" job, he's a bit of a laid back old timer who just wants love and nose scratches. He's only stopped playing as much in the last year or so, and with winter setting in and his arthritis acting up he'll be playing even less. However, he still loves to cuddle or peak over the top of your book to see what you're reading. Camping is one of his all time favorite activities although he isn't much for the hiking part of it any more. He's the biggest baby you'll ever meet and talks all the time. Nope, I'm not talking barking ... he talks. He whines and whimpers and lets you know just about everything going on in his silly head.

For those of you who remember, or paid close attention to Shadow's photo, there was a little white dog we were calling Snow who lived with us for a little over a month. We ended up finding her a wonderful forever home where she will be very happy and well taken care of.
And, though she's passed on to greener dog parks, no post on our furry little friends would ever be complete without a picture of our love bug Tasia. We miss you sweet lady.
