I can't tell you how sad I am. As of right now I'm planning to spread his ashes in the mountains on a backcountry ski adventure/Reinhold tribute on Sunday.
I'm still not sure what type of dog Reinhold was. I was told Pyrenees/Malamute but suspected lab/malamute, maybe even lab/Pyrenees. The more I google search the more I see dogs in each category that look a lot like my best buddy. He came to me named Gizmo and I promptly gave him a better suited mountain name, named after the greatest mountaineer on the earth, Reinhold Messner.
I'm going to miss him something awful.
