We had the privilege of climbing with Horton in February 2009. Great dog. Strong.

The last time we saw Horton. 12-26-10
He was sniffing around the parking area, paying extra attention to yellow spots in the snow.

RIP Horton. Might be a good time to pick up a puppie in the hope it might be a reincarnation of Horton.

You can just see that look in his eyes as he left us... We were just too slow for him...

Condolences to the family and friends of Horton. He sounded like an amazing dog that I had hoped to meet someday. :(

I met Horton a few times while up on Quandary, first time I met him was in the Christo following down a few skiers. He was a great dog and will be missed on that mountain.
