Tamara LaPlante is the patron saint of stray dogs, which run rampant here.
She currently has 19 dogs, I think, plus what seems like a hundred cats and kittens.
It’s become a tradition among volunteers to give Tamara a bag of dog food before leaving the reservation. Now that it’s so bitterly cold outside, I understand better why Tamara fosters so many dogs.
She offered to host Pixel at her house, too, which was really sweet. So my little Maltese â€”
â€” almost befriended this guy â€”
â€” until I realized Frontier Airlines doesn’t allow dogs on its planes.
