My Dog

My dog.


Packer is a pure bred Black Laborador Retriever who will be turning 7 on April 19th of 2005.  He has an extensive career logging more than 1500 "man miles" on trails and is a 110 lb tank.  From running behind mountain bikes to running down river banks and occasionally swimming a class II rapid or below to keeping the belayer company at the local crag, this dog has done it all.  And no, I do not carry his food and water, occasionally I will carry his modified ridgerest-sleeping pad to prevent him snagging it on trail obstacles.
