Meaning of Animoosh

We all have dogs for different reasons and each one of them holds a special place in our hearts. My work often takes me to northern Ontario (and that's way farther north than Highway 7!)  Here dogs live a different type of existence.  I knew after my first visit to a fly-in community that one day a little pup would come home with me.  Well, that day came in October 2014 when "Ki" - short for Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwig, got on a plane with me in a small carrier bag and landed in Muskoka.


Animoosh is Ojibwe for "Dog"
