The Inertia

There’s just something about the relationship between man and dog that is undeniably heart warming. Dogs provide comfort and companionship for us humans. Plus they work really hard to please us. Like Josie, one of Sun Valley, Idaho’s hardest working avalanche dogs. Josie, owned by ski patroller and Sun Valley-local Jimmy Terra, guards the resort during the winter months and in the offseason? She plays, hard, following Terra as he patrols the epic mountain bike trails in the Sun Valley area. This is her story. One that makes it easy to see why she’s so revered in the valley.
