Frasier shakes with Meghan Hurley, his handler and a therapist at the River Bridge Regional Center, which works with children who have suffered from sexual and other forms of abuse in Garfield, Eagle, Pitkin and Rio Blanco counties. Frasier has undergone extensive training and can be used to put children at ease during therapy, interviews by investigators, medical exams and even testimony in court. This photo was taken during a recent public presentation in Glenwood Springs on the work done by dogs like Frasier.


Lab mix a comfort to victims of abuse

GLENWOOD SPRINGS — People attending legal proceedings in Garfield County shouldn’t be too surprised if they find a furry, four-legged visitor in the courtroom.
Frasier, a Lab/golden retriever mix, won’t be there for having lifted the neighborhood dog’s chew toy, or for that matter having lifted a rear leg where he shouldn’t have.

Colowyo decision met with gratitude

All summer long, says Moffat County Commissioner John Kinkaid, life has been on hold for many in northwest Colorado following a federal judge’s ruling in May threatening the future of the Colowyo Coal Mine.
