Pets: Bingham – “Binghamton of Tok” – Treeing walker coonhound, Eddy – “Sausage”, Karl – “Karluk”
Bingham entered my life as a stray, abandoned in Tok for 2 months to fend for himself. I grew up with hounds in rural Pennsylvania and I knew he’d be the perfect fit for me. He spends most of his time lounging in the sun in the summer or resting on the couch on his favorite white pillow. His favorite past times are sleeping, sunning, chewing his bones, and sneaking up on the bed when my wife Cristen and I are sleeping.
Eddie, a pit bull mix, grew up on the streets of L.A. where my wife adopted him. He built up street cred and then made the journey north to Fairbanks. He and Bingham can often be found sleeping on each other on the couch enjoying his golden years. He loves long walks in the woods and letting every squirrel know that he won’t put up their chatter. Give Eddie a soft blanket and his mom and he will be perfectly content for hours.
Karl, a crafty orange tabby, was also adopted as a stray. He was found roaming Karluk street in Anchorage, hence his name. He patrols our garden to keep away any rodents and considers everyone in our neighborhood his friend. While not on patrol, he enjoys chasing his laser, knocking over things for attention, and napping in his cat tree.
Thank you for spending the time to learn more about my family. I hope to meet yours.
