Hi from SC

Just found out about the board and it looks good with some nice discussions already going.

I am in Fort Mill SC and a member of a K9 SAR team in the upstate.

Cyra- *was* my trailing dog (W German Working Lines) until she was diagnosed with HD - and she was certifiable - had a minor glitch is our January test and were prepared for a March test, but, oh well, stuff happens. She is doing water search training and it is not too hard on her joints - at least she is not showing any loss of drive or pain afterwards and we are cleared by her vet for this .... and we HOPE to be certified in about a month.

Grim is my new dog. Got him as a young 2.5 year old Czech GSD adult from a fellow in Wisconsin whose other dog absolutely despised him. Original thoughts were to do trailing with him, but our team has a number of excellent new dogs going through a training program and Grim tested out very nicely for detection work, so we are doing cadaver training with him.

I am a 50 year old grandma of 2 and the thought of water and cadaver is starting to sound pretty good to me anyway. Plus I get to be a victim for all the other dogs, so need to take some books and bug spray out in the woods on those weekend training sessions

Hey Nancy! Glad to see you made it!
I can recall "hanging out" waiting to be found down by the Mississippi River. 3am, no moon. When I glanced up to see which dog was sniffing my foot :eek: it was a half grown coyote. Poor little guy is still probably running from my laughing so hard.
