We still say,(us dogs) that the little boy is about 2 miles down stream, but as time goes by, he could easily float out to the Great Salt Lake and never be found.
this is my Buddy Keiser. He is working the other shore.
It is so hard to believe this quiet peaceful looking river is very dangerous just under the surface.
Murphy is checking the other side of the shore too.
This is where the scent is "Pooling" at least that is what I keep telling My Vickie. Now that doesn't mean the little boy is right here, it just means that his scent is settling in this area. You see it can come to the surface, then be carried by the winds on top of the water to lots of places along the shore.
Water searching can be very frustrating for all..... (FYI. Some may want to know why I don't wear a vest to identify myself when I am on a search, like Keiser does. well, as My Vickie tells me, she was on a search many years ago and one of the dogs got injured because he had a vest on and it got caught up in the dense terrain. Since then, she has always worked her partners off lead and "nekkid" Just so you Know)
After the day of searching, Kurt wanted to check our pulse and respiration to complete his re certification for his EMT license. Of course I don't need an EMT license, I just need a good nose. And I got that.After a tough week of searching, Murphy and I got a big reward today. Yep.....Kids....lots of fun little kids.
Happy Live Children. Sometimes searching can be so sad that a day like today can make all the difference in the world. I was so tired, so sad, so pooped, but today...well, I feel much better now. Thanks to all the kids who let me and Murphy come and play with them.
And yes, if you saw Goose's post, My Vickie and Goose's mom went out on the atv's last night WITHOUT us. She came back so excited because she saw This:
Yep, a two year old little guy. You'll have to check into Goose's blog cause his human named this guy and your never gonna guess what she is calling him.
Or maybe you will. Any Guesses?
