Why go through the heartache of leaving your dog in a kennel, or with a friend when you go away – when you could go together?
A Camping With Dogs Instagram account was started by dog- owner Ryan Carter. Camping With Dogs shows dogs swimming in lakes, and cuddling by fires. This site shows man’s best friend spending quality time with owners
Instead of dogs being left behind, these Instagram pictures show dogs and humans having the time of their lives together on spectacular camping trips.
Note: As readers of this blog know, Divinity loved camping trips whether they were outdoors or inside.

It is now exactly one year since Divinity was euthanized.
I wanted to post the last photograph taken of us the night before my little lady died. Also included here is a link to my condolence post I wrote last year where I thanked everyone for their blog visits, wonderful comments, and the private emails, and letters after Divinity was gone.

This concludes my monthly “death-day” posts. There are some unpublished pictures of Divinity I want to share, and there might be a few movies as well. In addition to the photo’s & movies, I’ll continue to publish posts on senior dogs, blind dogs, rescues, and health topics as I’ve posted in the past.
On September 6, 2015, the Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network announced they had rescued their 4,000 Cairn Terrier.
I’ve been told that there is no realistic way of knowing the exact number of Cairns Col. Potter has saved since they rescued Divinity from the puppy-mill in late November, 2008. However, the Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network has rescued an average of 286 Cairn Terriers each year since the organizations founding in 2001.
The latest Cairn to be rescued is Danny Ryan, who you can see in the following photograph.
In early July, I read the heart-warming story of Noli Bear who had been rescued by raft guide Danny Allen from the Nolichucky River, in Tennessee.
After her rescue, Noli was taken to the Appalachian Bear Rescue where she will recover, and then be returned to the wild.
The five-month-old, 14lb, American black bear was seen struggling on the bank of Nolichucky River near Erwin, Tennessee, for four days. It appeared she had been abandoned by her mom and had become malnourished. After becoming more comfortable with human contact, she jumped into the raft of river guide Danny Allen of High Mountain Expeditions.
Since Noli‘s rescue, I’ve been following her progress, and people from Finland to New Zealand have left comments on Appalachian Bear Rescues sites as they check in to get the latest update on the internationally famous “Cub on a Raft.”
