Awesome! Didn't Chris take one of that giant mushroom with his hand in there for perspective?

It was refreshing to be welcomed into the club so kindly. Seeing everyone pull together to help out Friends in need was comforting.
You're quite welcome, and our philosophy in Rising Sun and in TLCA is that while our shared enthusiasm for our Toyota 4x4s is what brought us together, it is the wonderful people that make us want to be part of the club.

One of the things we learn from each other is the types of things that can be handy to take with. No need to get carried away, but it is helpful to be prepared for contingencies. Kind of like" "don't hike Mount Washington in a T-shirt and shorts"

This seems like just the type of crew we have been hoping to find. Surely we’ll be showing up to an upcoming meeting at Stevenson as we live right up the road.
We'll be looking forward to seeing you!

After a bit of a trail ride, they fell asleep side by side for the highway ride back to Denver. When we arrived at Dumb Friends League, they were much more relaxed. We discovered they are both girls. They were kept together in a run of their own and given some dinner. They did not have microchips, as they will be on a “lost and found” hold for the next several days. I checked on them this morning and again this evening – they are adjusting well. The more dominant one has gotten friendlier and seems to have a minor soft-tissue injury on the front paw but is no longer limping. They have been vaccinated and need to go through a behavioral evaluation prior to adoption.

I see you are a vet tech, thank you so much for seeing to it that these dogs get proper care and prospects for a brighter future!
