My 2017 Halloween Super Heroes!
Margarita taking a stroll around the campground – she was fascinated by the free-roaming chickens!
We had a very nice stay at this campground. If you have never seen the Natural Bridge, this is definitely a trip to add to your travel wish list!
We were thrilled that all three of our dogs who participate in dock diving were once again invited to compete at the DockDogs World Championship!
This was also the first year the World Championship was held in Knoxville, TN!
Once again, we traveled in our motorhome, and towed our Jeep.
We had our team decals updated:
Ready to roll!
We had fun playing the Roadtrip Bingo game created by a fellow dock diving competitor!
Arrived to Knoxville safe and sound…Cheers!
Excited to be in Knoxville, TN for the first time!
Waiting in line to check in at the competition:
Getting super crowded as we move in line to sign in!
Having some fun in line!
First glimpse of the competition floor!
Our spot in Dog Town:
Getting back to the hotel room and Margarita claiming all of our Goody Bag items as HERS!
Hooch earned #1 Ranked GSP for the 2nd year in a row ~ so proud of him!
Margarita enjoyed the views from the hotel windows, and napping between competitions !
Liver Killer Bling:
We had a wonderful time, and hope we are fortunate enough to be a part of this event next year!
Previously home to acres of apple orchards, Hauser Estate Winery ‘s tasting room is located right outside of Gettysburg. Beneath the tasting room is an underground winery production facility. The winery also has a location in downtown Gettysburg on Lincoln Square.
We visited the tasting room, which was situated on a hill, and had a gorgeous view.
We sat on the outside deck, as dogs were not allowed inside.
Their outdoor patio was dog-friendly.
This may have been the most fun we’ve ever had at a campground!
On the way out to Knoxville, TN for the DockDogs World Championship, we stopped for an overnight stay at Wytheville KOA.
Not only was this campground super dog friendly, it had a snack bar, an arcade, batting cages, AND a bowling alley!
The Batting Cages:
The Bowling Alley:
Margarita got excited to see a few other “doggies” she could play with! HaHa!

Taking a walk around the campground before we headed back on the road to Tennessee:
Each time we stopped to spend the night on our way to Knoxville, we changed the “miles to go” sign on our camper!
Getting ready to get back on the road… but not before a selfie with HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCH!
Margarita had her “first day at college” with a great visit at Rowan College at Burlington County meeting students and staff in the Student Success Center for their Mental Health Week event, while she helped enlighten them on the positive benefits therapy dogs provide for students with depression and anxiety!
The event was sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa Chi lota Chapter and RCBC Student Support.
The first full week of October focused on increasing understanding of what mental illness feels like, so others can learn more about the wide range of symptoms experienced by those living with a mental illness.
In addition, the purpose of this week was to also reduce the misunderstanding and stigma associated with mental health conditions.
