All that and a film star too, with his cameo appearance in "48".

Try switching over from snowshoes to crampons on a steep narrow spot at the beginning of Owl's Head slide and have Brutus come up to check on you!! Hike with him and Kevin - it is a treat!!

Uh oh, I smell a challenge to "most avatar appearances" :o

I've yet to meet him on the trail, but have had the pleasure off. Kevin - Brutus is one lucky dog to have you as a friend!

I have long thought Brutus has real "star quality" about him.

BRUTUS should most definitely write a book of all his adventures from a dog's perpective.
He is really a class act.
Would love to meet him. Hope "Bernie" is as inspired as I am!
Great pics!!! A big thank you to you Kevin. Brutus is indeed a very lucky fella.
GO BRUTUS! You're almost there.....
:D :D :D

I met Brutus and Kevin for the first time at the NH 4000 Footer Awards presentation a couple years ago. Appropriately named!

In days of yore (when I was an AMC member), I recall following the hiking exploits of a dog (who's name escapes me) and his human companion.

These stories were a riot and they usually appeared in Appalachia Journal and were really well-done. I believe the author was Doug "Bongo Boy" Mayer of RMC and NPR's Car Talk fame (Doug runs the Shamless Commerce Web Site).

Maybe Brutus needs a similar scribe to help him express the K-9 joys and frustrations of hiking with humans.

Kevin, can you type?
