black-labHere’s a story of a group of climbers who did everything right and, as a result, survived a 500-foot slide down the side of Mt. Hood and a night of “hellacious” winds and snow. Not only did they bring along cell phones and mountain locator units to be sure they could be found in case of emergency, they also brought along Velvet, a black Labrador who lay across them during the freezing night and is credited with quite possibly having saved their lives.
