Britta, a chocolate lab with her nose in the camera

Britta is our nine-year-old chocolate lab, and she’s a pretty typical Missoula lab. She loves going to Tower Street to play in the river and reluctantly joins us for canoe trips on the Flathead River. She likes a Big Dipper dog cone now and then but probably likes the journey more than the destination.

We adopted Britta in 2011 from a rescue shelter in Corvallis, MT. When she joined our family she was just under a year old. These days she spends most of her time on her seat looking out our front window.
