Former racetrack greyhound Stormy finds freedom and joy in Alaska

More: Stormy was rescued from a racetrack in Mexico and arrived a thin dog with sores and a nervous disposition. As a Los Angeles house pet she relaxed and was happy but when we moved to Alaska she came into her own! In this photo you see the tundra turning red and purple with the cooler temperatures of fall, and Stormy showing her strength, confidence, and exhilaration during our backpacking trip into the mountains. There is nothing like the power of nature to help one heal and grow in ways we only dream of when we are trapped indoors.
