Dog Stories For This Thanksgiving

Aurthur with Team Peak Performance

On this wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, I’m highlighting a heartwarming story about the heartiness of the canine spirit. My own dogs’ companionship and loyalty is something I am thankful for every day of the year.

In Ecuador, a scruffy, miserable stray dog befriended a group of Swedish adventurers participating in the 430-mile Adventure Racing World Championship through the Amazon Rain Forest. Mikael Lindnord, of Team Peak Performance, who fed the interloper a meatball one day, said he came to the country to win the World Championship and instead got a new friend.

“Every grueling task the team face, Arthur would do the same. He swam alongside them while they kayaked down rivers, dragged himself up hills during hikes and pulled through knee-deep mud during treks. Even when the team tried to get rid of their new member out of concerns for his safety – he refused to leave.”

This story will bring you an extra big smile. Read more at The Daily Mail.
