— Bulletin staff report
at two different dog rescue schools, including one in Utah, and one where he was handled by trainers from the Swiss Alpine Club. Over the years, his keen sense of smell was used during several snow slides to ensure no one had been caught beneath the snow.
But Kenai’s rise to the top of the pack wasn’t always a sure bet. When he was being trained as a puppy, he was described by some as being slightly stubborn.
“We weren’t quite sure if he’d figure it out," John Millslagle, Mt. Bachelor Snow Safety Supervisor, said. “But then we realized that he was more motivated by food than toys, and after that, he did phenomenally."
Millslagle said even up until Kenai’s final days, the dog would often amble into his office, knowing a treat would usually be waiting for him there.
Kenai’s sharp sense of smell was both what separated him from the pack and what made him a typical Labrador. When he wasn’t training or participating in drills, his nose could sometimes get him into trouble. On a few occasions, he was found in a neighbor’s garage, rummaging around for something tasty to chow down on. Sometimes, he’d end up wandering down to the Mt. Bachelor parking lot, looking for leftover grub.
“He was pure Lab as far as his stomach went." Norsen said.
Millslagle said Kenai’s sense of smell was one of the best he’d ever seen, and that he was a very thorough and methodical searcher. Norsen, who has another 1½ year old rescue dog in the program, said though Kenai was getting older, he was in excellent condition at the time of his death. He said the dog probably had about two more good years of being on the rescue team if cancer hadn’t caught up with him.
When Kenai’s death was announced on the Mt. Bachelor Avalanche Rescue Dogs’ Facebook page, there were over 90 comments from people expressing their condolences.
“It’s incredible the number of lives he touched," Norsen said. “Everybody knew him and loved him."
