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!

I found Porkchop about eight years ago dogging semi-trucks out in the country. He was about eight weeks old when I found him. He was small and scrawny and covered with fleas.

I pulled off onto the shoulder of the road across from him. When the traffic cleared I called to him and he came running to me. He slept on my lap all the way home. From that day on he has been my dog.

A horse trainer found this little girl and two of her siblings out in a field. He picked up all three and took them home. He found homes for the other two and decided to keep her. He stopped by my boarding facility one day and asked if anyone could take her. He was no longer going to be able to keep her. I immediately fell in love with her.

I brought her home and now she is my husband’s dog.
