It was so special to be able to spend a night in nature with Olive, my niece's pooch! Olive carried her dinner bickies and a soft merino sleeping sheet her grandma made for her. My pack was a lot heavier so that is my excuse for not running and jumping around like my four-legged companion. She even tried to entice me to throw her sticks as we tramped along. I would love to have that much energy! It wasn't until the drive home that she finally crashed out.
