Dog Gone Snow Crazy

Occasionally we all come across things that are really special on the internet. A friend of Lynnda's and mine in Colorado, Helen Lind sent us this peice about a dog in the snow. Before I give you the link, I want to tell you a story...

Several years ago, we were sitting around telling skiing yarns... one of the yahoos there told us about a bunch of telemark skiers who would get into the steep-and-deep champagne powder at Steamboat Springs in Colorado. The snow was sometimes so good, and deep that they used to ski with snorkels so they could breath when they were too deep in the snow for normal human function... I never saw them do it... but after seeing this dog, I know it is possible...

Take a look at this dog in the powder... just click here, and you are under the powder...

Grad. Saint Mary's University, 1975, got into the medical device business initially in sales, then various management positions up to president, all in Medical Devices. I prefer therapy products over diagnostic, but they are all fun, and in a way have defined my life. I have now evolved, with help from my 35 year partner Lynnda with whom I now share every hour. I am into staying healthy, photography, kayaking, bicycling, gardening and two books a week. I wish I had gotten to this stage earlier!
