This is my first real camping trip and one thing I’ve learned – everyone has a dog, or 2 or 3. It’s almost a requirement! Since I like dogs and am alone, it’s a great way to meet my fellow campers. I just walk around and ask them about their dogs. Everyone wants to talk about their dogs. It’s worse than grandkids – They even show me photos of their dogs on their phones (not their grandkids). I am amazed, also, that there are so many woman campers – 3 campers full of women next to me. I don’t feel so alone. Women can talk and I can talk to anyone. There’s no shortage of conversation between asking for advice, sharing places to go, talking about dogs….
People don’t go up to talk to each other – they talk to each other’s dogs. I need to get my own dog soon. I will have the most obedient boxer ever! Better not say that, the way my luck has been going.
