Memories of Tillie, the ‘Indian Fort Dog’



Danielle Dabkowski - “My husband and I met her when we were at school at Eastern in 2005-2008. We were looking for good places to hike. She came with us on literally every hike! She always went up and down the mountain with us, accepted water we had brought for our own dog, and was a great guide. This past Christmas, we went for a hike and she came with us to West Pinnacle. She is such a wonderful dog. We were saddened to hear of her illness, but she has given so many good memories to so many people. Her legacy will live on.”

Leslie D. Choate - “Tillie was around every time I went hiking there. Last summer a friend and I went around five in the morning to catch the sunrise and beat the heat of the day. Tillie came out and kept us company all the way to the Pinnacle and escorted us back down again a few hours later.”
