Tristan, formerly a freelancer covering Banbridge Island, joined our staff at the end of November, replacing Derek Sheppard, who went to make videos for Bastyr University in Seattle.

Tristan described the hapless animal as “post-apocalyptic.” Now there’s a writer for you. “This dog has been there for a long time. It’s kind of being picked apart. … It’s pretty disgusting,” he said. Which reminds me of that old Loudon Wainwright song …

The dog did not appear to have been abused, Tristan said, just ignored. To the Kitsap Humane Society’s credit, once Tristan alerted them to the dog, they quickly agreed to remove the carcass.

Also today in Bremerton, I understand, the city’s latest sculpture is being installed. Is there a connection? Probably not. I’m just sayin’ …
