Camping gear for dogs

IMG_0351.JPG

My dogs Ruby and Malcolm came with us to Lake Mendocino on the BBG camping trip. Outward Hound and Ruffwear are both excellent brands for outdoor gear for dogs &mdash Ruffwear’s lightweight Flophouse foam pad has a waterproof base layer and a fast-drying comfy top layer that Ruby loved to lie on, and Outward Hound makes things like carriers, life vests, and waterproof dog bowls with loops for hooking onto backpacks or belt loops.

Malcolm carried his own kibble, cookies, and poop bags in Ruffwear’s Approach Pack. The only problem: the bottom buckle strapped right across his weenie, so he we had to take it off before he could pee.

    I have a similar problem with pants.

    “Outward Hound.” That’s really cute.

    A buckle across one’s weenie, though, is no laughing matter. Ouch!
