Elmo!

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Elmo is named after a small town on the Flathead Indian reservation in Montana located at the southern end of Flathead Lake. She’s nine years old but acts like a six-month old puppy – and about as bright as one, too. Experience has taught her to be afraid of larger aggressive animals. She runs fast, in short bursts. She likes people, though, when they aren’t aggressive. And food, she especially likes red peppers.

 

For what it’s worth, legend has it that when she was born, the wind stopped and rain froze in place, just to have a look at her. At least that’s what old-timers say. Elmo doesn’t put much stock in legends. She doesn’t care much for the wind and the rain, either.
