Porkchop’s First Camping Trip

We love to go camping and so does Porkchop! We went up to the foothills in March, 2015. We didn’t have our little Applesauce yet, so Porkchop had our full attention.

We found out that Porkchop suffers from allergies. Poor baby! Once we figured out what was going on things were much better. This trip taught us about “reverse sneezing” that dogs can do.

Reverse sneezing (also called backwards sneezing or inspiratory paroxysmal respiration) is a phenomenon observed in dogs, particularly in those with brachycephalic skulls. … During a reverse sneeze, thedog will make rapid and long inhalations, stand still, and extend its head and neck. A loud snorting sound is produced.

We are looking forward to taking Applesauce camping on our next trip. She is going to love it!
