    This reminded me of a dog that would hike the trails up and down 10 miles with hikers at Supai

    He greeted my daughter and I when we started down and met us down the day we came came up

    BEREA, Ky. — For more than a decade, hikers of Kentucky’s Indian Fort Mountain were greeted by a very special guide. She would meet folks at the trailhead and accompany them throughout their hike, often making as many as 10 trips up and down the mountain each day.

    All dogs go to heaven because all dogs are inherently good.
