Chewy passed away on September 29th, 2019 after a lifetime spent roaming the Colorado, New Mexico & Wyoming Rockies with his buddy, my son Chris. He was the stubbornist and yet, one of the most endearing dogs I have ever known. Chewy loved being in the mountains with Chris and I was fortunate enough to be able to accompany them on a few trips, creating memories that we shall never forget.
Chewy has been an SP dog since his first trip into the Wind Rivers in 2009 https://www.summitpost.org/wind-river-chronicles-part-iv/556868
He went with us for the first half of our Rawah Wilderness trip in 2010, summiting North Rawah Peak in the process https://www.summitpost.org/north-to-south-the-rawah-wilderness/678905
And one more time in 2011, back to the Winds, where the gnats got the best of him https://www.summitpost.org/wind-river-chronicles-part-v-show-me-the-mony/755652
He was loved by many and will be sorely missed by all that knew him. Chewy was truly a mountain dog and a good friend.
