|Over the years I tried to put my dog Jonley
into the pic
of the week whenever possible.
Here is a collection of photo's I've taken. The only ski run he would not
run down was under the dino chair. For some reason, it just freaked him out......
|April 1998, Jonley's first day in snow.
9 months old
||Halloween day 1998. First snow of the season.|
||February 1999 early AM hike.|
||June, 1999 was my only time I've been able to snowboard the face of Hyak in June. Over 600" of snow during the season. Jonley is in the distance with Hidden Valley in the background.|
||Halloween day, 1999. First snow of the new season.|

|Remains of early season snow.
(Jonley wore a light around his neck in the dark as you can see in photo so I could find him easier if he wandered off)
|My favorite photo that I had taken of him through the years
The Oly Can was getting its re-paint in the background.

|New Years Day, 2006. The groomer had some fun making this 8' snowball.|
|January 2006, out for the dog walk.|
|June 11, 2006. You can still see remains of the 1/4 pipe.|
|Saturday, September 23 at 6am. I was taking Jonley out for
morning walk but this day he didn't seem to have the normal bounce in
step (he was diagnosed with cancer 2 days prior and was scheduled to go
in for an ultra-sound Monday).
When we returned to the cabin he went to the basement and layed down, acting very tired.
It was the last time he went on a walk..... 2hrs later I carried him up and into our van, then took him back to our home where he rested for many hrs, but was getting worse..
He passed away at 10pm that night.
