Her work ethic and drive can motivate anyone in her presence! Be sure to try one of her chocolate chip cookies – but be forewarned, it may turn into 5, 6 or even 7 cookies very quickly!

Milo

Milo is a 9-year-old rescue from Red Lake, Ontario, and is the Lodge’s resident dog. He is very happy and loveable and enjoys spending his days running through the wilderness while chasing mice and squirrels. He thrives on attention and is very good around adults and children. Don’t let his handsome face and dog smile fool you though, because he will eat anything he comes across including bread, cheese, garbage and the occasional bit of sweet grass.
