Miss Maude - DidiMiss Maude
(Didi Doolittle, Broker)

This is Miss Maude, our 14-year old rescue dog from Savannah, GA.  Aside from her affection towards bourbon, she was never meant to live in the south.  We brought her directly to the mountains where she adores hiking, rivers, and all things “snow”.











Miles - Mike KingMiles
(Mike King, Director of IT)

Miles, our 3 ½ y.o. Yorkie, is overly affectionate, highly intelligent and is the first dog we’ve had that knew how to play fetch without any training. His nickname is “Mr. Ferocious” because of how he growls when playing and his penchant for skull & crossbones blankets and dog tags.










Bodi - KyleBodi

When he’s not digging holes or hiking, Bodi is slinging real estate in the Westin office.
















Rubie - Julie M

Rubie is 5 months old. She is energetic, loves to cuddle and enjoys hikes because she gets to chase all the blowing leaves. She was rescued from a kill shelter in Dodge City, KS and we couldn’t imagine life without her.

Famous show dog leaping for the ball at Bighorn Park and retrieving it to owner, Sue Rychel.

Portuguese dog owner standing nearby said, “Cocker Spaniels can’t swim.” (They are the smallest of the spaniels and known in England for their hunting of Cock Hens and their swimming ability.

A couple of seconds after that remark, Charley jumped in the water and swam full throttle after the ball.

Gunnar - JeannieGunnar

Here is a photo of Gunnar (previously Gunner).  I got him because his owner, an avid duck-hunter, said he was gun-shy.  He really isn’t, but pretended to be, so that he could live in the mountains!
