Lots of Wally World "campers" in North Bay, Ontario since it is right beside the Trans Canada Hwy. I always check out the rigs and jones over the MH and 5th wheels. Maybe someday my little trailer will grow up to be a big 'un.

Me neither. I guess some people have decided that they can tell others what to do when the business owner says something different.
Oh well.
Now back to the regularly scheduled program!

I looked back three pages and he hadn't posted. Don't know if he posts in this thread.

Maybe it's just the competitive nature of economy shoppers, flea market folks versus the great discount chain WM.

Possum, you got me wondering if Walmart should sells pre-twisted knickers, for those too lazy to twist their own ?

Very nice Our two are both rescue dogs as were the two before them.

They have never parked at Walmart (keeping on topic)

Georgetown, good for you! We've had many rescues over many years. One is now over 12 and has Addison's. She's fine, but years on prednisilone will probably make her vulnerable to an infection one day, just as her friend Chippewa went down in 12 hours. He had been on a heavier dose of predisone for years. Lupus, but like the Addison's, didn't interfere with a good life.

Our current 2nd guy came out of the Grand Canyon, probably a res dog. Now estimated to be six next month, we've had him four years. Think of the craziest dog on Dog Whisperer. Times 2. He still can't go in and out the door easily. An example? Okay. Tell him he's going for a ride. He already knew you were about to leave, but now he's doing 360s with joy. Open the door and he freezes. Can't make it without the other dog going first or being put on a leash. He's perfect then.

We've worked so hard to get him to not fear us (he wasn't abused, just semi-feral I guess) that I have never been closer to a dog.

To stay on topic, he often waits in the truck in the WM lot while I go walk about to admire the rigs of the annual Entegra rally there.

To bad dogs don't live longer lives. Put our doggy down last year, almost made it to 16. He has seen alot of Walmarts in his time and he was one of the reasons we would put our slides out... We are fostering now while at the stick and bricks but when traveling in the winter we will be petless for the first time... and that defeats the purpose of having a motorhome for us..... might have to get another permanent buddy.

Reading your post is 'bitter-sweet.' One of my two best friends (13) passed away just a couple of hours ago.
