Oh the taste of Sunshine

“My name is Denali, I’m a 6 year-old Husky mix. Originally from New Jersey, I moved to Arizona with my mom and cat brother, Hubert, when mom started veterinary school. Some of my favorite things to do are hike, play in the snow, and take naps. Most importantly, I love adventuring with my mom and meeting new people. So far I have been to 20 of the 50 states and am still counting. After mom is done with school, I hope to move somewhere with snow, but for now I’ll settle for any adventure time we get!”

Denali belongs to vet student, Sarah Ciamillo, at Midwestern University. Denali was featured as last issue's caption contest photo. Melanie Runkle from North Carolina University came up with the winning caption featured below.
