I feel like I should have a cough or fever. Can someone get me a thermometer? Or is it AA that I
need? Do they have AA for my condition? Hello, My name is Chad Brotherton, and I am addicted to dogs, sleds,
and the two gliding smoothly across a snowy trail. Believe me, it is as big a surprise to me as my family and
friends. In another world and another lifetime ago, lets say little Chad at about ten in Shelton, CT, I was a
terrified child in the tree. One hand was on the tree branch and one was gripping and swinging a waffle ball
bat. From those eyes, the boxers trying to tear me from the tree were evil; they wanted to eat me. Sadly that
was my understanding of dogs for a long time.
Between then and now, I received a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Ithaca College, became a
dry stone mason/ trail construction worker for the Park Service in Utah and Inyo National Forest, California. I moved West with a craving for open space and a plan to
write a book or two. I came to California to build trails in the Sierra and study the wilderness issues.
Then I met these dogs. What comes next? At this point I do not know if I could stop if I tried.
These dogs have become my life.
