Dog Tarp

Because Boomer refuses to sleep in the tent, I decided to try a dog tarp, which just arrived in today’s mail. As you can see by the picture, he likes it! He went right in and lay down.

It’s small enough for him to carry. And – it might not be so bad, not having a wet smelly dog in my tent at night. The real trick will be keeping him from knocking the tarp pole over if he’s tied in at night. But the makers of the tarp suggest pitching it by tying the open end to a tree, and then tying the dog to the tree. So we’ll only be using the pole when that’s not feasible.
