  • Showcasing our best … And days spent with (wo)man’s best friend | The Madisonian
    If you ve read any of my past columns or if you follow me on Instagram abigaildennis then you know how much I adore Calamity Jane She s a year and a half old and the cutest chocolate lab I ve ever seen She is my constant companion and my best buddy Whether I m spending the day in the car hiking fishing or just relaxing on the couch she s always within arm s reach I confide in her about everything and she really listens I promise Where I grew up people don t connect with their dogs the way Montanans do In inner city Kansas City dogs stay home during the day and are often kenneled while owners run errands They are walked on leashes or let out in fenced in backyards I m so happy Jane and I live in rural Montana She grew up in my car and is great on road trips I ve leashed her a few times like when we take walks in town but she is free to roam when we hike and I think it s made her a better listener and obey er I m comfortable letting her out in my yard to sniff and explore without a tether because I trust her and I trust our community In Montana many dogs have a purpose other than being a pet Cow dogs work on ranches Bird dogs retrieve ducks geese pheasants and grouse Jane is still young and inexperienced but I m convinced she s going to become a first rate shed hunting dog because she loves finding deer antlers And if she doesn t get the shed hunting thing down we already know she makes a great couch potato and foot warmer Abigail Categories Opinion Tags Abigail Dennis Editor

    they have a complaint but not when they have a compliment If they are happy and content we probably don t hear from them That s one reason I think these anonymous gifts are wonderful Some caring person went to considerable time and effort to let others know they are appreciated and that gesture has special meaning to the recipients When I think about the ways our county residents get involved in helping others it always warms my heart There are many ways to give back Are you passionate about healthcare Our county has multiple hospital boards and foundations Want to volunteer with kids Check with one of our many schools Care about natural resources The conservation districts are always looking for extra hands Last week I wrote about school spirit in Sheridan Then I attended the Twin Bridges vs Harrison Willow Creek basketball game and saw something so cool Harrison s two cheerleaders did a fantastic job entertaining fans They cheered for the team but also took time to interact and dance with two of the Wildcats youngest most enthusiastic fans just check out the picture So does the anonymous gift giver want to come forward We want to recognize you for your kind spirit and thoughtfulness Abigail Categories Opinion Tags Abigail Dennis Editor Madison County Montana and The Madisonian Bookmark the permalink Leave a comment Recommended Articles Thoughts on being objective and school spirit Traditions Winter woes No way Smoke in the air One of those non traditional families No Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment You may use these HTML tags and attributes a href title abbr title acronym title b blockquote cite cite code del datetime em i q cite strike
