Tak­ing the dog for a walk

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Some take the dog for an even­ing stroll, oth­ers for a walk up the beach. And then there is 66 year-old Ré­jean Hurt­ibise, of Chartierville, who thinks noth­ing of tak­ing the dog out for a cou­ple of hun­dred kilo­me­ters.

We caught up with them, Ricky is the com­pan­ion’s name, between Coat­i­cook and Comp­ton last week as he was on the fi­nal miles of his jour­ney. We had read the week be­fore in the Bar­ton Chronicle of his jour­ney, if not we would have con­tin­ued on our way, af­ter all, there is noth­ing spec­tac­u­lar about an old man, a dog and a man­made wagon trav­el­ling around.

He had de­cided to go and visit his sis­ter at a camp­ing ground in Fre­lighs­burg, yes, the one in Que­bec, where he used to go years ago with his fam­ily. So he did so, go­ing through Vermont and part of New-York.
