When mama came home yesterday with a new backpack for my brother and fished my trusty pack out of the garage, we started to suspect that maybe something was going to happen. Considering we wait around basically our whole lives for things to happen, we got a little bit excited.
Only then remembered: it takes humans FOREVER to actually get ready to DO anything. So we got a little less excited.
You see, yesterday was my mama and dad’s adopt-a-versary of each other, and every year around their adopt-a-versary, we go on a trip with our backpacks. We always drive and drive, and then we all put on our backpacks and walk and walk and walk through the woods, peeing and sniffing everywhere we choose, until we get to a nice spot to rest and eat some kibble. Then I lay there and supervise while mama and dad pull things out of our backpacks and make a nice big crate for us to all sleep in together. It’s a good time!
I’m an old seasoned pro at backpacking, but Doodlebug has never been before! He’s a little nervous.
So to help him feel more prepared for our little trip on Saturday, I’ve been helping him practice one of the most important backpacking skills of all: power napping during breaks while still wearing your pack. As you can see, he’s already a pro!
Happy weekend, everyone!
