Golden Retriever and his “Person” Rescued on Mt Hood

OregonLive reports that Monday July 23, 68 year old Alan Rosenfield and his 4 year old golden retriever Ranger were hiking on Timberline Trail on Mt Hood when Ranger went down a 40 ft slope.  His person, Alan, went down the slope to save him.  They were unable to get back up, and were there for about 4 hours.   The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office report rescue workers located and hoisted the pair to safety at about 7:45 p.m and they were able to walk back to The Timberline Lodge, about 3 miles away.
