May 15, 2013 – Abby, a 2 year old Irish Jack Russell Terrier has been named head of outside security for Kodiak Island Resort. Abby is very resourceful and creative when it comes to ferreting out interlopers and un-invited guests, especially the 4-legged kind. Almost all fishing lodges in Alaska have security systems but few are as compact an efficient as ours.
Abby has had numerous encounters with foxes, land otters, short tail weasels and even a moose. She has proven very efficient in warding off interlopers or notifying the staff of arrivals by guests and friends. Abby does have one short coming, she is easily bribed with dog treats. Other than the one short coming she has proven to be exactly what was needed to keep everyone aware of the outside comings and goings around the lodge.
