When I think of camp, my thoughts turn to some of the best summers I spent as a child. The fun, the friendships, the activities and camp songs -- it was all part of the camp experience. I can't imagine a childhood without the joy and camaraderie I was lucky enough to experience at camp.
So when Peggy at Peggy's Pet Place asked if I'd like to co-host K9Kamp along with SlimDoggy, I thought it was a terrific idea. Actually we both did. It made lots of sense as a complement to FitDog Friday. And in some small way, it brings back my fond memories of childhood camp, although with K9Kamp you never have to leave home if you don't want to!

We're all in it together, so we can share our progress, leave notes of encouragement on each other's blogs and enjoy the camaraderie and friendships, old and new, just like at regular camp!
We'll post our January challenge next Friday, Jan. 24. We hope all our old K9Kamp pals will be back with us in this January session, and we hope to meet some new pals too. We have a fun challenge planned so you won't want to miss it!
Then, you'll have three weeks to work on your challenge, prepare your post and on February 21, link up and join our K9Kamp Kampfire blog hop. We'll have a big prize package giveaway too. Here's a sneak peek at what you'll have the chance to win!
- Petmate Interactive Treat Tower
- ChuckIt! Kick Fetch
- Dogzilla large rubber bone for strong chewers

And one more thing, our pal SlimDoggy put together this nifty list of real -- not virtual -- dog camps. If you've been to one, let us know how you liked it. I've always thought it would be fun to attend one of these camps.
The fun and games continue every Friday with FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With Love, SlimDoggy and Peggy's Pet Place to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!). Join in every Friday by linking up your FitDog story or visiting the blogs in the Hop.
