Camp DogsJul 192014
I'd like to introduce to you our resident dogs, Luna and Pilot. They are both about 2 yrs old. Luna is a Border Collie mixed with some northern breed - DNA results have yet to be returned and Pilot is a Miniature Australian Shepherd.
In the winter they live in the city - Luna in a single family home with a back yard, and poor Pilot is confined to an apartment in Vancouver. So they love nothing more than coming to Mayne Island where they can roam our 23 acres together as long as they like. But mostly they enjoy visiting campers, chasing sticks, wrestling with each other, and enforcing the camp rules (Luna has returned a couple of times with non-eco friendly soap which she has confiscated from some poor camper).
If you like a snuggle in the morning, leave your tent flap open and you may find yourself sharing your pillow with Luna (it's happened). Be careful of the pups following you to the outhouse if you are the only one onsite - they may wriggle under the door so as not to be alone!
They may run at you and bark when you arrive, but as soon as they get close they will wriggle around wanted to be loved.
