As you know, last weekend was nose work camp weekend for my sisters. They packed their bags and left on Friday morning for Camp Warren in Eveleth. Being such a wild pair, how was the weekend? Did they actually learn anything?
This year as in the past two years, the lodging would be in the Cub Cabins right on Half Moon Lake. They got to be in a brand new cabin, but it wasn’t much different from the older ones. Mom and my sisters stayed in the smaller half of the cabin for the first time.
Because Bailie and Madison are wild ones, the first thing they did in the cabin was jump on the beds. Mom says they are just like small humans when it comes to bed jumping! Their room had a nice fireplace, but my mom doesn’t like fire, not even candles, so they did not use it. The cabin had heat to keep them warm.
After arriving and unloading, they took a short walk to stretch their legs after the drive. It was pretty muddy up there because they have had lots of rain, but my sisters managed to stay fairly clean. They stopped by the lake for a photo.
Saturday was a gorgeous day from sunrise to sunset! They got this photo on their early morning walk.
Madison checked out the tiny cabin. We still think Mom should get us our own mini cabin for the backyard! Bailie and I loved it too the first year we went to nose work camp!
The two vicious hounds proudly guarded the entrance to their cabin. One never knows when an intruder might show up.
In between their nose work sessions, they took walks long the lake and some breaks on the benches. Madison was super proud to be with the big dogs at nose work camp. She had a real blast!
The first night they did some searches in the Homaji Lodge which was fun. Because it got dark, Madison learned about flashlights. At first she was scared and was barking and howling, but eventually, she realized it was not a big deal.
Have you been in a yurt? We have and now Madison has too. They had searches in both yurts on Saturday.
Madison was impatient while waiting for her turn to search the yurts so Mom put her in an old cart and took a photo. It is fun because the camp is big and each year we get to search some different areas. Last year we were in the horse area for several searches!
Working two dogs is a lot of work, and Mom forgot about getting videos of our searches. She did remember once and got a video of Madison searching for one exterior hide on the deck. Being in heat, wearing panties, and being in a new spot were not a problem for the little one. She is all business with a good work ethic like I have! Pardon Mom’s lack of fashion, but with all the mud, she wore boots all weekend.
Sunday, they packed up and headed back home. We will see who gets to go next year. It is always a fun time and lots of learning takes place as well!
