Duman was welcomed by the camp host, who told us the second day we were there that the day prior to our arrival, thieves had come in the night and stolen thousands of dollars of food and camping supplies from an out-of-state family reunion group. He said the first night we were there, he could rest easy, since Duman occasionally gave a low throaty growl every time something moved and he would only get up and check on things if Duman began barking. He said the other campers had expressed to him their thankfulness that Duman was there, because they were no longer afraid! During the week we were there, Duman only really got upset about one thing, a wolf-looking dog. His owner learned not to walk his dog close to our campsite!
