Today was an awesome, if short workout. Heather ran a certifying length trail through the woods, and Sally did a great air scent problem. We cut it short because of the heat, but it was still a very productive training day.
The real joy was meeting all the joggers, walkers and mountain bikers. We ended up talking to many of them, and they were supportive of sharing the forest with us. Many seemed to know instinctively that with so many users, eventually somebody will get lost. They welcomed us with open arms, and one even asked about how he could join our K9 SAR program.
You plan for good days, but you never really know what will happen that makes it a good day.
