Day Seven "Here We Come"

Before we start, My Vickie and I wanted to thank everyone who sent us pictures and let us change them around to our delight.  What beautiful and handsome two and fourlegged models we had to work with.   A big thanks to all of you......
Well, this has been a bunch of fun for me and My Vickie.  We thought we would finish up by letting all our two and four legged friends now that, should you get lost....remember.....

Stay Put and Wait cause very soon, other two and four legged friends will be looking for you.
It doesn't matter where you are, us fourlegged ones will use our noses to find you and bring you home.
In the forest
In strange places
In the water

Search and Rescue Dog groups are generally volunteer non-profit organizations.    I caution you to be wary if someone calls and offers their services for a price.

When your family members and loved ones are missing, you are at a very vulnerable place and can easily be led in the wrong direction.

Most qualified SAR organizations are called by the SO that is responsible for your search.  If they have not yet, called in the dogs, REQUEST them.  Also ask for air support and searchers from other departments.

Sometimes when we are so worried, we just let others handle the situation.  Be proactive.  Find your local resources and keep a list of who you want to respond if ever you, your family, us pups, or friends should ever get lost.

You are entitled to ALL the help available.  WE just don't always know what options we have.  (THESE ARE JUST THE OPINIONS OF ME AND MY VICKIE)
Stay Safe Everyone
and thanks for coming back
day after day after day


And hope to see you Saturday cause I have been having such a great time this last week and I want to tell U all about it.

Bert that was a great week of posts. We've been hiking and backpacking for a long long time and we still learned sooo very much. So Bert my brother this "Psalm" is for you: 'I was born to search. I sniff the air, the wind, the sky, the familiar, the new. I watch the horizon, the brush, and the leaves to know what moves. I am searcher of the lost, big and small. I will trace sounds you cannot hear, smells you cannot smell, and sights that are specks in the distance. I will follow the trail for miles and miles. I am always on the search, I follow the compass inside me, for I am Bert and I know for whom I search.'

This has probably been one of the most useful informative weeks. Thanks for all the great information. I think we'll all be remembering it if anything ever does happen.

Thanks to you and your Vicky. I really learned a lot. We will always remember to stay put when lost. I imagine most people keep moving and get themselves more lost.

You know what is interesting is that when house cats are lost they usually find a small place to hide and stay put - usually they are too scared to move. I do lots of search and rescue for lost cats and I always tell people that their cats are probably hiding within a yard or two and will stay put for up to two weeks. I guess, cats are kind of smart this way - stay put and wait to be found!

Just found your Blog. We are friends with the author of "Scent of The Missing" which is about a Golden Retriever SAR dog named Puzzle, so finding your Blog is a real treat.
