A truth revealed – Our dear friend Peg calls last night around 10:30, Iceman (dog) is missing. His collar broke.  Iceman is blind and half deaf but ran the Iditarod a few years ago so he is a tough animal. Search woods for what seems like a mile along river on foot and four-wheeler. Find him on STEEP river bank and climb down. Iceman is freezing and scared from falling in river. Have to swim across freezing river dragging Iceman behind me and finally get Iceman up the bank. Walk too far back to road just me and Iceman. Along the way I see a huge pile of bear shit. – So there you go, Bears really do shit in the woods, and so do grown men when they see Bear shit in the woods with only a blind and half-deaf dog for protection….
