Nikki Delventhal is a full-time adventurer. She goes on hikes regularly and discovers lots of new places every day. Often, she goes up the mountains on her own, until Camper came and decided to join her on all her trips.
Camper was once a stray dog that lived up in the mountains. No one knew if someone owned him or not, but clearly, he was on his own for a long time. And when he saw Nikki’s car pull up, he decided she’s the one.
When Nikki opened the car door, Camper welcomed himself in and jumped into her lap. It’s like they’ve known each other for a long time. And the moment the hike started, the dog just followed her.
It was the craziest thing, Nikki said. As the hike progressed, she felt more connected with the dog. So when they both got back to the car, she knew she couldn’t just leave him behind.
Nikki took Camper to the vet for medical care and the doctor confirmed he was a stray. They needed to keep him for a few days though for a stray hold. And five days later, Nikki drove back to the clinic and picked up her new dog.
Camper was so excited when his new mom came back. He knew it’s the beginning of a new life for him. He chose her and she chose him in return.
Nikki and Camper stayed at a hotel on their first night together. She gave him a bath and he was so thrilled to finally be clean. He snuggled up in his new bed and woke up the following morning energized and ready for a new hike.
Today, Camper goes with Nikki everywhere she goes. They spend a lot of time outdoors, just enjoying each other’s company. Since choosing his new mom, this dog has traveled to New Mexico, Arizona, and California, and he will be discovering a lot more places in the future with his loving mom.
