Stray Dog Climbs Himalayan Mountain Breaks Records!

DOGS ARE AMAZING!!!  This stray pup in Nepal follows mountain climbers to the top of a mountain in the Himalayas!  After braving wind, snow, and dizzying elevations in the Himalayan mountains, this tenacious stray dog may have broken a world record without even knowing it. The mutt in Nepal began following a group of climbers who were getting ready to scale to the top of nearby Mount Baruntse. The Kathmandu-based peak stands just south of Mount Everest at 23,389 feet tall. Though it is a formidable climb for any experienced daredevil, the dog dubbed “Mera” completed most of the climb without any protection for her paws—or human help at all, except for a short zip line ride.
