I am on hold as well, Whitney. I am helping out my team for the time being.

I don't know if you remember but we sorta met when you were in CA? You came to my training class with a friend but we didn't get the chance to be introduced, I do believe you watched class for a little while. Wow how long ago was that? It's been quite some time.

My dog has a medical issue and the vet said no SAR for us I posted about it in the health section, unfortunately not too many people responded, it is a very rare condition. She has a sub ararchnoid cyst on her lower spine. Not only is it very rare it is even more rare in the GSD, the vet that did the MRI said he has never seen it in a GSD. They can fix it with surgery, very delicate surgery, but these tend to come back, so I am still in limbo, I don't think she can do SAR even after the surgery though. She can do a lot but SAR is just too strenuous.

Dutch Karin, wow, I really enjoyed my UNO. Wasn't it fun! LOL My dog was awake all night watching something in the forest, you could tell something was out there as her head would move to watch whatever was wandering around out there! LOL Glad you got that done and congratulations on becoming an apprentice!

Hi GSD2.

Where you located? I'm assuming you are CARDA. So sorry about your pup. I can only imagine how disappointed that feels. But you sound like the type of person who will adapt well to whatever is next for you two.

I too have a dog that was up all night on the UNO. He slept by my side for MAYBE 20 minutes. I was so jealous of the people who said their dogs snuggled with them all night.

Take good care!
P.S. I'm up at Tahoe and train with the Truckee and Nevada County groups.

Oh dear has it ever! We're actually heading that way in a couple weeks. Still training out there? Do you still keep in touch with Jeremy and them?

Hot, humid and miserable in DC this week, but it's supposed to get better.

Had a great time at our HR training weekend at the beginning of the month. Lots of great learning and great to meet new people and watch nice dogs work Next up, I hope to go to NC for a 3 day work shop with Randy Hare at the end of the month. Should be a great time!

Lucky you for the Randy Hare workshop; should be great. Between the NAPWDA test, WCU Adv HRD and upcoming Old Dominion in September I am seminar-ed out. We will be training with a county agency next month who wanted to get together on water.

Pretty much in maintain mode hear due to the recent heat. Unghh.

Wish us luck, having had to cancel our last scheduled attempt, we are set to get our helicopter hot load sign off this Sunday! Woop!

Tygo has been having some GI problems that have slowed us down a bit lately in training and having to cancel out on a few trainings. I'm hoping that he is on the mend.

I finished my navigation courses and went on a backpack trip and was the navigation queen. I LOVE maps, compasses and GPS units.
