No no no, not that Indy!
His is called Blue Boy, or Brock by the breeder (who is absolutely awesome! in my humblest opinion!) but we are renaming the little guy to Indiana Jones or Indy for short. Not just because of the movie (although that played a part!) but Indiana Jones always manages to find what he is looking for, no matter what. What better name for a SAR (search and rescue) dog?!
I’m in my 4th week of "guest" status right now and I have to say the group is awesome! I know the link to the page didn’t work before, but here’s some info that I know of about what I’m going to be doing.
I do have to get a TON of training. CPR, First Responder courses (8 weeks worth I believe), Wilderness first responder, fitness / agility training for me and I need it! Not to mention, how do you read those Topographical maps?! Gotta take a course in navigating.
The area I’ve chosen is Air Scent Area Dog. There is also trailing and many forms within each. Here are some links:

Anyway, gotta go to dinner…
It’s our 2 year wedding anniversary!
Love and Light, Mon
