Early last summer some peak baggers lost their dog on the Democrat Lincoln Bross trio and abandoned it. It lingered all summer and was reported. Finally a week ago or so, someone was able to rescue it and take it to safety. I don't know if the original owners want the dog back- only that "information" is being exchanged.

I don't take my dogs on mountain climbs. When I take them for a hike, it is their day, not mine. They have my undivided attention. We go where it is safe and where a dog can have fun, like a stream with splashing and swimming pools, but no current to sweep them away forever. Ten miles of trekking through sharp angular talus for a summit view is meaningless to a dog. It doesn't know the cliffs and dangers, or not to chase the pikas or mountain goats which can gore it. Its bare feet are a mess after the climb.

    At the near-end of the rains last Spring, a lost limping smallish dog showed up here. But before I could assess the situation and put my little twit away, she chased off the miserable looking... more

      You're clearly a very kindhearted person underneath your "gruff". People who love animals and who treat them kindly are one of my two favorite types of people. It doesn't matter what else they may... more

          The young dog was shot with a 22. The shooter probably sought to hit the heart area but instead shot the elbow region. It shattered the bone in the area and the bullet broke into many pieces. The... more

            Dogs do manage with only 3 good legs. That is better than 3 good ones and one damaged one that holds them back, hurts, or is poisoning them due to infection. Keep us posted.

              The operation was a success. The dog is looking very good, standing and looking great. The amputation was up at the lower shoulder area. The vet charged $1,200. I and some friends are going to... more

                You generously fed him and then got him the help he desperately needed, effectively saving his life. If his leg was that shattered and infected, it had to be zapping his energy and life blood slowly... more

            Share your dog's story on a Go Fund Me page. Throw some mud at the wall to see what sticks.
