July 4th Camping Trip - Part One

We are finally getting around to sharing our pictures of the July 4th camping weekend.  We had a wonderful time and are looking forward to going back.

This is Mister Higgins' new favorite spot. 

Bear was happy to be in the gravel.  He is so easy to please!

This is our neighbor, Gypsy.

Going for a Royal walk with the Duke and Duchess.

I found a large variety of smells that needed sniffing.

This is a silly picture of me.  The Duchess wanted a "portrait" of the Queen.  Of course I would not cooperate fully.  I mean really,  she thinks she can boss around the Queen.  NOT!

This time she was sneaky and took the picture when I was preoccupied.

This is me running to the Duke.  Cute paws, huh?

I was getting really bored with this whole "portrait" thing.

I would rather be running off-leash!

The Royal Zoom!

Mister Higgins is trying hard to copy me.

He didn't like the "Portrait" thing either.  It is very difficult for him to sit still.

But he really tried to please the Duke.

He got bored pretty fast though.

Here he is kissing up to the Duke.

And here too!

Time for a game of ball.  You will notice that Higgins is never off-leash.  He is still a puppy and he has to wear a long line when we play in unfenced area's.

What goes up . . .

Must come down!


I will try to show you the rest of the pictures tomorrow.  I hope these look ok.  Our Blogger preview is broken so we just have to post it and hope for the best :)  Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Emma Rose!!! Absolutely beautiful photos! What a lovely spot for camping! That long line Higgins is on looks a lot like mine! About 70ft of clothes line and some 1in webbing :)
    We love this post! Guess what!? The first part of our camp trip this time was xl'd due to Florence Lake which is above the campground, having some spillover into the campground! Good grief, will we ever make it out camping again? :)

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  2. Gorgeous photos!! Everyone looks so handsome and pretty in their portrait photos, and it looks like you all had a great 4th of July. I look forward to Part Two!

  3. Great pictures. We love going RVing, but have not gone much this summer because it has been so blasted hot everywhere.

  4. The pictures were wonderful! The Duchess has such an amazing camera :) Everyone looked so happy in the pictures although they didn't want their portrait taken :) We can't wait to see more!!!!!!

  5. Woof! Woof! LOVE all your camping photos. You got a nice trailer n place to camp. BTW: What camera were used to take your photos? Would like to know.
    Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  6. Sugar,

    The camera the Duchess uses is a Nikon D60. It has 2 lenses and the telephoto lens takes the best action shots.

  7. Nice catch, Mr. Higgins!

    We think the royal portaits turned out smashingly successful! Everyone look so regal.

    Bear, we love a doggie who isn't picky. If a bed of gravel suits your fancy, then we're behind you 100%!! :)

  8. It looks great to me! I wish I could have joined you.

    I happen to think your royal portaits turned out really well!


  9. Emma Rose, those are wonderful and totally beautiful photos!! Such great action shots!! We are so glad everyone had fun! It looks great to us!! We can't wait to see the rest of the photos!!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

  10. I loved all your royal photos and the ones of Mr. Higgens are awfully cute. He will probably be on that long lead for awhile..he looks like a teenager! Please say HI to Sir Bear..the rocks must make him feel all warm and comfy. I hope the Duchess is all better after her oral surgery..Chance is sending you a kiss:)

  11. Emma Rose, Loved seeing all your camping photos-looks like you have quite a nice set up. I am wondering if Higgins is a Border like you or some other breed? I love you all.
    I'm hoping to someday get a trailer so that I can take my dog/dogs along.
    That would make it purrfect.

  12. What fun!


    What great pikhs!

    Thanks fur sharing them!


  13. NanaNor,

    Higgins is actually a pure bred Border Collie. I am a Bossie. That is 1/2 Border Collie and 1/2 Aussie!
    Sir Bear is 1/2 Lab and 1/2 Aussie, though it's hard to tell because he just looks like a Lab :)
