A Forester’s Traveling Companions

Blitz & Nellie taking a break for a swim at Lake Prairie

One of great things about being a forester is taking your dogs to work.  They want to go and I have an empty truck bed.  It works out for all of us.  It is a joy to take them along and bears run away from them.  They are pretty handy to have around.  When they find a yellowjacket nest they love to run to me so I can knot the bees off of them.  If they find something dead or smelly they love to roll in it so they can find me and share their awesome prefume.  However, we do have to watch out for rattlesnakes and Nellie could tell you a story, but we will save that one for later.  Perks of the job.  It seemed like a good time to bring up my traveling companions.  They bring a smile to my face and with all the chaos going on around here I hope they do the same for you.  More about them later.

Bo was our first Golden Retriever. He traveled with me for many years throughout the Sierra Nevada. He had visited more of the Sierras then most people will ever see.

  1. That is what it is all about. Spending time with your dogs and letting them experience as much as they can, in the years we have with them. I have many fond memories and speak highly of the adventures and miles my dogs and I have seen. It wouldn’t be the same without them.
