This date in Slice history (2000)

(Actually, this is from a Furry Talk column that ran on that day.)

Sometimes there are stories behind pets' names.

“Two years ago in March, my husband drove up the North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River,” wrote Janet Lake of Kellogg. “At the bridge near Pritchard, he noticed a black and white dog, alone in the rain.

“When he drove back down the river, the dog was still at the bridge, wet, cold and shivering. She chased his pickup down the road. She had no tags, no collar.

“He stopped, and she got in the pickup with him.

“We advertised in the paper, and contacted the local veterinary clinic. No one claimed her.

“Her name is Bridgit.”
