Dogs of Aspen

Dogs of Aspen

Yes, it’s true. We have a whole lotta fur coats up here in Aspen, and most of them are worn proudly by our beloved canines.

Aspen has the reputation as being dog-friendly, which is a deal breaker when those wanting to visit and play with their pup in the mountains book their vacation here.

With amazing trails to hike, an abundance of well groomed butts to sniff and all of those friendly Rocky Mountain folk wanting to be their next best friend, emerging out of doorways to bury their own noses into their coats and feed them gourmet home-made doggie treats, it’s like dog-heaven up here.

Aspen Animal Shelter

At the center of all the dog-love (and cats, parrots and the occasional pig) is Seth Sachson, the Owner/Founder of the Aspen Animal Shelter, a no kill shelter located near the Aspen Airport Business Center. Seth is always approachable and goes the extra mile to help those with animal concerns.

Vodka For Dog People

When I found out that The Animal Shelter’s third annual Dog Day Carnival community event was coming up, I brought in Tito’s Handmade Vodka to co-sponsor the event with us.

For twenty years Tito has been not only making award winning microdistilled 6 times, 100% gluten-free vodka, but he has also been committed to rescuing dogs, many of them of whom live with him in his distillery and office.

Together we brought in photographers to capture the beauty of the dogs and their owners at this Dog Day Carnival and interviewed the companies who came in to donate their time and their food to ensure a good time was had by all.

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
