Today was training day. Fozzie did very well! Even though had hadn’t done any search work for at least several months. He was a bit too casual, but he definitely picked up the scent and tracked it accurately. Mu did great, of course, as always. Tino was doing fine, but we had a miscommunication about where the scent trail went. Tino looked like he might have lost the scent, but uncertain. It turned out that we followed a section of the scent trail about 50 feet offset, on the other side of the creek. I should have read Tino’s signals better. We met Haas, one of the new dogs in training. I think he will do very well. He is certainly very handsome, photogenic. We had light rain and cool temps, although not as cool as Tino would have liked.
