Two dogs left on Massive Sunday?

Postby winmag4582001 » Mon Sep 09, 2013 9:20 am

My son and I came across two dogs that looked to have been left on Massive yesterday. We were going to bring them down if they were still on the trail upon our return but heard that another hiker had taken them down.
Just wanted to make sure they got home safely.
Thanks.

I'm obviously slow...... Is it not polite to make sure they were OK?

You're one of the lucky (pun point!) few who missed this clusterfuck.

It's a good idea to check up on the situation, and I hope there's already a happy ending. But this thread is destined to be locked after about 15 pages of Internet crusading.

Oh no, your post is fine and completely understandable.
It's that based on recent history, people get a little crazy when dogs are involved.

It is just the beginning of the week - give it some time.

This could be interesting if the lost dogs were somehow linked to surveyor tape on the trail and human and/or dog poop in or out of plastic bags.
