BARK BARK BARK

Hi, I'm Lucy, Pamela Tracy's dog.
We're on our way camping.
This is my absolute favorite thing to do.
I immediately get over-excited
and BARK  BARK BARK
the minute Mom (really Dad) parks the camper
in front of the house.


Used to be, my family only had quads
But, then, they purchased a side-by-side.
This is great news for a dog because
now there's not only a seat for me
but in case someone (human) takes the seat
I can always ride in the back
My job, of course, is to bark when my smallest human
Pamela Tracy's son
climbs too high.
BARK BARK BARK
He really needs to climb down
I worry


This is my Don
Pamela's husband
He's the sensible one in the family
He doesn't climb very high
From this angle,
he can easily toss me food.
I always say thank you
BARK BARK BARK


The Arizona desert is an interesting place
This desert tortoise is no fun for me to chase
and when I
BARK BARK BARK
its head and feet disappear
What's with that?
This hawk was no better than the tortoise
I mean really
when I BARK BARK BARK
the hawk did nothing.

Mom and I both agree
Meals are one of our favorite things about camping
Mom, because she doesn't have to cook
Me, because Don always tosses me pieces of bacon
BARK BARK BARKON



You can't see me
but I'm at the feet of my smallest human as we travel back home.
He's sound asleep so I cannot BARK BARK BARK
I've done my job and kept him safe.


By the way
I'm not sure where they got the dog
on Pamela's April release
but it's not me.
I'm much cuter and my BARK much more dignified.
Still, you might want to read it.

  1. What a cute post, Pamela. I have to admit I'm a little jealous. I missed my dogs like crazy when we went on our most recent vacation a few weeks ago. Lucy looks like a great camper! Such fun. I keep promising myself that we'll go camping and then it never happens. Blessings!

    1. Lucy is a great camper. If she gets loose, she goes and visits other campers. It's an interesting way to make friends.

  5. I love this Pam. I'm sure Lucy has a blast. From the photos it sure like fun, however I'm not a camper. And I don't know that I could in the desert where there could be snakes. Shudder. I like the cover of your new book. So cute.

  6. We started camping in tents. You'd like it more now, Terri. I have indoor plumbing and a microwave!
