BEAR ALARM (BA)
Meet Lily, our newest member of the family! She is a Karelian Bear Dog, and is incredibly smart, curious and playful. She's spent all of her summers as a pup learning how to greet guests at the dock, guide you to your cabins and vigilantly keep bears off the property. She's excelled at 'treeing' bears: chasing them off the property and into a tree.
Please note: Lily lives on the property all summer-long, working very hard to keep guests safe from bears. For safety and other reasons, Port Ashton Lodge does not allow guest pets on property.
IN LOVING MEMORY OF
Yukon, a Karelian bear dog/black lab mix, was a loved part of the Port Ashton Lodge family for many years and was a fantastic BA. Yukon had 8 1/2 great years greeting many guests and chasing bears. Trained as a puppy to sit still on a sit-on-top kayak, he went on many kayaking adventures around Sawmill Bay, and even a few paddle-boarding rides.
Licorice, or "Lickie" as she was affectionately called, lived a long, full life of 18 years. Each spring when it was time to head back to the lodge, Lickie's anticipation was actually palpable... somehow she just knew. She had a sweet, deep "woah woah woah" bark with a little dance that went with it as she anxiously watched us stage summer supplies and pack everything.
