3 Famous Dogs of Colorado

It's no secret. I am a BIG fan of my adopted home, Colorado. I ran across some interesting info on some famous pooches from this area, and had to write a blog post to share with you.


Parkour


Blodgett is a mountain climbing Australian Cattle dog. His guardian, Ian Krammer, wanted a best friend that stayed active with him, so he worked on helping Blodgett to navigate difficult terrain. After taking over his guardian’s instagram account, Ian decided to get Blodgett his own account, and Blodgett became insta-famous for his amazing parkour skills. Weaving in between bike racks, jumping on concrete structures, Blodgett is more fit than most people. www.instagram.com › blodgettthegreat


Historic Railroad Traveller


Annie was a mixed breed dog that lived from 1934-1948 in Fort Collins, Colorado. She was adopted by a group of conductors and brakemen travelling on a passing train. Being a large and friendly dog, she quickly became their mascot, and began to travel all over with friendly strangers and railroad workers. When she got older, she stopped riding the train and changed her job description to being the official greeter of the train depot. If you want to make the journey to her grave, it still resides in Fort Collins.



Mayor of Georgetown


On February 11th, 2020, Parker the Snow Dog, a Bernese Mountain Dog, took office as the Mayor of Georgetown, Colorado. He is on record as promising to bring “hugs, love, and cookies to the people of Georgetown.” Check out his website: https://officialsnowdog.com/
