It is true though, that Colorado dog owners are at least, let's say, unique. All the research you need: Go to the Trailhead or the Steakout in Fort Collins any day from April through November. There's more dogs than humans. At the bar. Yes, FoCo hippies bring their dogs to the bar. Where they bark, shit, piss, get into fights, and take up my favorite table on the patio at the Trailhead. I'm not weighing in on 'ye old dead horse, I'm just sayin. Colorado dog owners are unique.
Dude, I'd see you on the river but I'm hardly ever out there.
