Search And Rescue Saturday — The Theory of Scent

by Mr. Taleteller on

My Humble Attempt This week for search and rescue Saturday we discuss scent.  In full disclosure, scent theory is very involved and I am not a scent expert by any means.  So this blog post is my humble attempt to explain a few concepts which I have picked up over the years while training. For […]

A Fine Irish Lass -- Tales and Tails

Feel The Love

by Houndstooth on

This week I have been under the weather, and I had a couple of Greyhound nurses looking out for me.  What I realized though, was that even though Bunny does her best to stay close to me in the bedroom and Flattery does her best to keep an eye on me while I’m sitting up […]
