Pack a little extra

- benadryl: for those times the dog decided to gets to friendly with stinging insects
- lightweight multitool with pliers: for those times the dog gets to friendly with animals such as a porcupine
I can't believe that I left on this trip without any benadryl for the dog, I know that she will swell up if she get's stung by a wasp or the likes. The switch from a standard pocket knife to a multitool just seems like a good idea in case I need to repair the pack on the trail as well as the time if the dog would mess with the wrong animal. We ran into a couple on the trail that had to pull spines from their dog's snout that mornign when it decided to visit a small porupine. I can't even imaging trying to hold down a dog while pulling the quills out... maybe I should pack some pain killers for the dog as well.
For what it's worth
