Pet of the week: Lava

Posted on April 9, 2018 |
By Larry Montague



pet of the week Frankie and Lava1.jpg

Lava was a canine ranger with the National Park Service in Denali NP, Alaska. The NPS uses sled dogs to patrol for poachers, ferry supplies, and transport researches to remote areas in the park. It's the only NP with a working dog team. Lava logged over 10,000 miles in his career--and in every position on the team. Now retired, he still enjoys playing in the snow and pulling our daughter (Frankie, 3) on her sled. Lava is our second Denali dog; before him we had his dad, Tonzona.

Posted on April 9, 2018 |
By Joan Ellis



Movie Review.jpg

The Rider — Running Time: 1:44 — Rating: R

“The Rider” is unique in many ways. Don’t miss it. It is the story of Brady Jandreau, a rodeo rider who has a terrible accident and then turns to a search for meaning in life without being able to build it with the horses he still loves but can’t ride. The movie is so deeply real that I was well into it before I understood what I was watching.

Posted on April 9, 2018 |
By Meghan McCarthy McPhaul



Outside Sotry Baby_Raccoons.jpg

Often, during my forays into the woods behind our house, I wonder who might be occupying the holes carved into tree trunks by time and nature. The barred owls I hear hoo-hoo-hoo-hooing, maybe, or the chittering red squirrels. And, chances are, there are raccoons in some of those hollows, high above the ground.
