Pluto the Parsons terrier (Jack Russell) loves to ride on the paddleboat with Chena and Penelope Litzen of Nikiski. "If we leave him, he runs along the shore chasing us," said the girls' mom, Geri Litzen. Pluto loves running after the family's mini horses, but stays just out of reach. He also enjoys stuffed animals and chasing their cats, too. However, when he gets inside he pretends he is a gentleman and ignores them because he knows he will get in trouble for harassing them. "We just adore him," Geri said. "He adds so much fun to our lives."
