You don't know jack s**t about what this dog thinks of her former handler. Get your head out of your ass.

Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

Well said, and agreed! It will be interesting to see if the rescuers knew about this prior to taping Ellen. Otherwise, her episode will already be outdated!

I love to hear a happy ending to this long, sad story. I hope Missy (Lucky) has recovered her health and gets to enjoy a long life with lots of safe hikes! =D>

It is unfathomable to me that the producers of the Ellen show got even one person to come to LA to talk about this, let alone eight.

Well, their expenses were all probably paid for by whoever manages the money for Ellen's show (is that how that works?). And, they get to meet Ellen, which would be awesome.

I hope they fit in a climb of Los Angeles mountains, like Mount Baldy. The altitude is only 10K, but that is from sea level. very nice views on a clear day.

The filming was probably a week or two ago.
