    Missy, a German Shepherd mix, was found abandoned at the top of a 14,000 ft. Colorado mountain. A group of strangers rescued her by hiking up there during a storm, making a makeshift sling and carrying her all the way back down.

    Great use of gear in an emergency. Big kudos to the people that went to rescue the dog. Don't want to jump to any conclusions but the people that abandoned Missy should be ashamed of themselves if they did so intentionally.

    Perhaps the dog is the survivior? Maybe her owner wasn't so lucky.

    ENO rocks, heart-melting story! Love my SN, the sad thing is I immediately looked to see if that ENO had been modified with new suspension. Hey, the standard-issued, heavy biner and larksheaded line held up, thats for sure

    I did the same thing

    Hurray for Missy! Great work Eno!
    This place you say your lookin' for
    It might have washed out with the rain
    Might not be there anymore
    Might not be the same

    Top that rise and face the pain

    Ha, that's funny, I did the exact same thing! Forget about the heroic rescue, the adorable dog, and the heart-warming story, what kind of mods did the hammock have?
    I also immediately called my wife over "See honey, hammocks save lives!"
    I'll use any argument I can get to justify my addiction.

    Think about the owner of the hammock and how we are fond of said, hammocks! That some hammock person sacrificed their pride and joy for that dog. God bless them!

    I'd gladly sacrifice all of my gear if I knew it would help save a puppy.

    I hope Missy finds a forever home.
