As the owner of a Chihuahua, I must extend my sympathies to all visitors to any campground during the time we visit. Annoying little creatures they, with their high pitched bark and other peculiar and aggravating traits. But my wife loves them. That being said, I always find it a bit humorous to read the noises which make for unhappy camping:

1. Generators are the top of the list. My apologies to anyone in a state park we may visit in the future-yes, we too, in addition to owning a barky dog, also own a Yamaha 2000i generator.

2. Then there are the previously mentioned dogs.

3. Add in the children's noises-did I mention we have 2 kids? Oh dear! My apologies to anyone in our campground that wanted to get away from kids.

4. Then there are the loud neighbors who you can hear through the walls of your trailer-ummm...I'm sensing a repeating pattern here-my wife stands behind the trailer and gives me directions on backing into the site, in such a volume as can be heard over the truck's AC set on high, and I yell "what?! I can't hear you! Could you move a bit closer?!" Happens until one of us gets fed up and we get within inches of each other. Funny thing is, the volume never seems to decrease.

5. Then there is the loud music people play-wait! Now that is flat out annoying and something I find truly unacceptable!!

It's a wonder anyone can actually enjoy camping with people like us around!

I can see the humor in all your comments, but I must ask, what does that have to do with a dog that barks incessantly? We're not talking about the occasional yap. My Coco does the occasional yap. That means she's a dog.

Sarcasm, perhaps?

Well, there was a bit of humor and poetic license taken for sure. Just my way of pointing out that almost anything can be a irritant to a person when camping at a campground. I even forgot to include campfire smoke. It's a calculated risk a person takes when camping anywhere, there will be annoyances.



But to my original point we do have a yappy dog, and even when attempt to stifle him, he does bark, like your Coco. And not at all the right times. I'm sure there are some who could find that annoying, and so I was apologizing to anyone reading, albeit a little tongue in check.

I am reminded of Samuel Clement's famous reply to the visitor who asked him why he liked cats so much.

There are annoyances and there are annoyances. The dog that started this conversation quieted down immediately when the owners took him/her inside their trailer. I don't understand why they waited so long. When we were in the Tetons there were 14 of us and there were times when we were the louds in the c ampground. However, we were quiet by 9 P.M.., didn't cut through people's campsites and the kids didn't run around screaming for no reason -- Except for the two year old -- who sometimes could NOT be quieted --

As for campfires -- we go through periods when we have them and periods when we don't. I understaand that it is part of the camping experience but when it's 90 degrees at night and the smoke hangs in the air -- or when people burn wet wood -- I'm real glad we can go inside the trailer.
