Search And Rescue Saturday–That Working Dog You Want

by Mr. Taleteller on

Okay, readers, today’s Search And Rescue Saturday is admittedly a re-post from a few years ago.  In the last two weeks, I’ve received a few emails from people interested in getting “working” dogs.  I thought this would be a good time to share our experience with my K-9 partner, Kuster during his early years with […]

Search And Rescue Saturday — Support Person

by Mr. Taleteller on

The beginning of a new year brings our team’s annual operations and security training.  All people involved with search and rescue must attend.  After we go through the refresher training security and all that is involved with dealing with the public, media, etc.  The different divisions of our agency run through what they do for the […]

Crickets

by Houndstooth on

Mr. Taleteller and I had a good laugh the other morning over his response of crickets from Küster.  I’ve mentioned in the past that in the morning when I get close to leaving for work, Küster, who has his bachelor pad in the basement, starts barking.  We aren’t sure how he knows when I’m actually […]

Search And Rescue Saturday — A Look Back

by Mr. Taleteller on

We made it.  It’s almost 2018, so let us look back at 2017. It is time for thinking about what we did this past year and Team Küster’s goals for 2018.  Wow, 2017 went by so very fast.  First, we did not have any health scares with the Chief Editor’s father.  If you remember we have […]
