Today’s dog featured in Dogtown Vancouver is Nemiah, Peter W’s pup. Here’s what he had to say about her…

NAME: Nemiah.
BREED: Border/ bearded collie.
HOOD: Mount Pleasant, Vancouver.
OTHER INFO: I accidentally adopted her on my way back from camping in the Nemiah Valley in BC’s Chilcotin Mountains. The road we had wanted to take was blocked by a forest fire, so we stopped to ask for directions at a remote ranch. After helping us find an alternative route, the ranch owner said she was looking for a home for the last of three little puppies, and before I could think it through rationally I was driving back to Vancouver with one of them.
From an early age Nemiah has had a love of climbing trees. It started with the pursuit of squirrels, but that doesn’t seem to be a prerequisite anymore.
