Thanks Jenny! Very kind of you (and appreciated.. Kind of barring my soul, lol).. I understand the elation that comes with watching your dog work odor - especially human (your kids) odor.. They just come alive that much more and so studied, with little electrical pulses of excitement flowing out of tails or with a head pop.. It is truly addictive and I know your pleasure..
Whatever the weather you play with Max in, I know he loves and appreciates you allowing him the joys of his ancestors, and letting him be the hero and save your kids lives =}
