    I just received an E-mail from Donna Dearborn concerning her dog Ella who finished the winter 48 on Mt Eisenhower on 2/16/2011. Below are two photos of Ella taken on West Bond the following year. Donna reports that Ella is now seven and still hiking strong. Here also is a link for Donna's book. www.everysunday.net

    Interesting thought, I don't see what harm it can do to ask.

    We just received word that Kali along with Heather, of course, has just finished another winter 48 round. Heather, please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is Kali's third winter round. Congratulations to both of you.

    Dusty was joined by his hiking buddy Max today as he completed his Winter NH48 list

    At @ 11 AM this morning Dusty touched the summit of Mt WAshington. What an incredible journey this little guy has had - coming from a kill shelter in VA to being to hiking the 48 4000 foot peaks in NH in the Winter.

    Congratulations to Dusty and Thor. As far as I know Dusty is the smallest dog to complete the 48 winter. It would have been interesting to have gotten a picture of Dusty and Brutus together. I'll update the list as soon as I hear from Dave and Thor.

    It's now official, we had three canine finishers yesterday on three adjacent peaks: Adams, Jefferson and Washington. Congratulations to Harley, Thor and Dusty. Here is the new list. Because of the near simultaneous finish of the three dogs I'm not sure of the exact order if it matters. We can make adjustments but here is the list as it stands now.

    Including Kali's third finish that makes at least four so far for this year. If anyone has heard of any other finishers please let me know. Also we'd love to have pictures of both Harley and Thor.
