"I care not for a man's religion whose dog and cat are not the better for it." ~ Abraham Lincoln "An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language." ~ Martin Buber "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." ~ Anatole France "In the beginning, God created man, but seeing him so feeble, He gave him the cat" ~ Warren Eckstein

Dog Survives a killer Avalanche

On Saturday, Bozeman resident Dave Gaillard, his wife Terry, and their Corgi Welsh dog named Ole were cross-country skiing along Hayden Creek four miles southeast of Cooke City when they inadvertently triggered the slide that buried both man and dog.

Kerry grabbed onto a tree branch and survived. Dave was buried in 12 feet of snow, and there was no sign of Ole. Later that night, Dave's body was located and brought down from the mountainside. Ole was nowhere to be found. Heartbroken and in a state of shock Kerry returned to Bozeman.

Then, four days later, Ole showed up exhausted and hungry back at the motel, four miles from where the slide occurred. It is unbelievable how a dog with diminutive legs dug out and marched four miles to the motel across rugged terrain blanketed with 60 inches of snow, but Ole made it and survived.

Ole was delivered to Gaillard's family Wednesday night, and doing really well now.
