Butternut bundle

Dana Mennes of Johnson and his exuberant pack of golden retrievers take a walk around Stowe Mountain Resort this week. Mennes owns Butternut Goldens, a small golden retriever breeding company based in Johnson. He takes the dogs out frequently to socialize so by the time they make it to their forever homes, they know their manners and how to mind their Ps and Qs. Those who have spotted Mennes’ pickup truck around the area know the pups in the bed will always accept gentle petting with an enthusiastic wag.
