The theme for February’s media contest was “friendship.” And around here, well, that seems to often mean dogs.
Among those featured here is Cassie, brought to us by contest winner and Research Associate, Brianna Herner. Brianna explains that this was taken in her backyard in Littleton, Colorado, where almost a foot of snow had fallen. “My dog Cassie is obsessed with the snow,” she says. “She’s been my teleworking buddy since last June when I started my internship as an Engineering Technician RA with the Bureau of Reclamation in Denver. She always seems to know when my eyes need a break from my computer and barks until I go outside to throw her favorite toys for fetch (even when it’s below freezing). Cassie is 11 now, and she’s been my best friend since 5th grade and has helped me deal with the stresses of high school, college, work, and now COVID.”
Our thanks to Brianna and Cassie for putting a smile on our faces with this photo, and thanks to all the others who sent in submissions, some of which you can view below.
