Kato was on a hike with his humans when, about a mile from the trailhead, he simply became too tuckered out to continue. Apparently, no amount of cajoling could get him going again.
Thankfully, Kato's friends knew what to do next. They called Evergreen Fire Rescue for help, and before long a group of volunteers arrived with a stretcher to carry the dog to safety.
The whole experience seemed to have left Kato feeling a bit bummed out.
