We are back! I was brave enough to take Benny dog to a campsite and he was an angel. wub.gif Frankie was as ever also an angel. In the end we went to Aboyne Loch Caravan Site in my mate's (very) luxury tent.

The view out of our tent

Image

There was a covered area with a wood burning stove which we used on the rainy evenings

Image

Benny was really good and joined several of the regulars, including one other dog, in that in the evenings without problems. His bestest friends were the lady who owned Corrie the 11 month old black lab and Chris, who owns one of the static caravans with his wife and their two rescue spaniels. They had their 42 wedding anniversary while they were there and had owned rescue dogs for the whole of thier married life.

Frankie surprised me by walking into water for the first time ever

Image

Benny found a rock (and got laughed at by Frankie

Image

but he didn't care because he liked his rock

I tried to get a picture of Benny standing looking noble on a ridge with a gorgeous view in the background

Image

I got there second time round

Image

We found a lovely sheltered spot for lunch

Image

Benny had a nap

Frankie had way more stamina than Benny

Image

We found a pyramid (Prince Albert's Cairn)

Image

My friend managed to get a photo of me (a very rare sight)

Image

Benny did cute (again)

Image

Another gorgeous view

I am sooo proud of Benny. A year ago if we had taken him to a campsite there would have been Benny shaped holes in the tent and several people would have been chased for their lives, he would have barked at every noise all night and I would probably have been chucked out for his behaviour being walked through the site if I had for all the other offences. He was able to share space in the evening with other people and dogs and mooch around getting cuddles from people. Admittedly we only saw kids on the last night (when people in a camper van decided they didn't want their space and parked perched on a tiny rough patch right next to us rolleyes.gif ). He growled a bit under his breath, but really wasn't too bad. angel.gif

He was also an angel.gif about sharing a tent (2 sleeping compartments) with my friend too, which is not bad for a dog who didn't used to like men, although he is generally very good with this friend.
