Dog food for the backcountry

I think I’m having one of those days.

You know those days when everything seems to be a little bit harder. When you second-guess yourself a little bit more. You get more bad news. And when you just want to go home and crawl under the covers and stay there until 2025. I won’t get into the nitty-gritty details, but hopefully you get me.

Once I got into this bad mood, I started to second-guess the Blog and the Twitter and the Facebook and all that stuff. Plus I’m really not looking forward to my next solo trip as much as I thought that I would be. It wasn’t supposed to be solo but that’s the way it goes.  Maybe the universe thinks I need the experiences for some reason.  I like to look at it that way.  I definitely like to camp with people much more than going at it alone. But I think if I sit and I wait around for other people it’s just never going to happen. That and I also don’t like to camp with people.  Figure that one out.

I think that’s actually a big part of the reason I wanted to write this blog in the first place. Not so much for camping or the outdoors, but for people who might experience the world the way I do. And if sharing some of that can help to motivate someone else to find it within themselves to do something that they want to do, well… that makes it all worth it.

For me when I’m in a rotten mood there’s only one person (ok dog) who can really make it better. So I decided to spend a little time with my pup today after work. For a while now I’ve been meaning to videotape him while he’s eating his new food. I had originally purchased this dehydrated dog food to use on Backcountry camping trips where I can’t bring the food he normally eats because it’s in cans. I’m happy to say that he loves this stuff! It’s too bad it’s more expensive. But… he actually seems a little healthier so that’s a bonus too. His coat is shining and he’s got a bit more spunk. If it’s making him healthy and happy then that’s what he gets. He’s helped me through so much, so I’m determined to make his senior years comfy and happy.

And on to the cute…
