There are many reasons I love the "root", but this is one of my favorites. It is so laid back and such a welcoming place to people and animals.

While I was in the Bitterroot this weekend having some fun I went into one of the watering holes downtown Hamilton and noticed the cutest dog hanging out on the bar. She was just so sweet wanting love and letting the patrons pet it.

Then my friends went to a bar in Stevi and this pooch was sleeping on the bar!

How cute, and one of the many reasons I love this area. They are so friendly to people and animals. It is so neat and cool that is allowed and not snubbed.
