Search & Rescue

Yesterday, me and my friend Gabby met up with Sarah (with Rafferty) to play victim for her search dog Hugo. It was so much fun and amazing to see Hugo at work. He loves it! We would go run through the brush to find a place to hide, then Sarah would tell Hugo to find us, once he did he made a couple circles around us and then ran back to Sarah and barked so she knew he found us and then she would give him a "Show me" command and he would lead her back to us, then we would play tug with his toy. He is so quick and found us every time. I would love to do this training with a dog at some point, it looked like so much fun. Here are a couple pictures of Hugo finding us. ;)

[Hugo running through some thick trees to find us. He is so fast, he flies through the brush, it took me and Gabby a heck of a lot longer to go through all these trees.]
[Hugo flying around a corner to find us in a gully behind a tree. Good job Hugo.]
After running around in nature we were able to go out for lunch. We went to this really yummy Pizza place. The pups were hot and tired so they collapsed on the cool tile floor while the humans talked for a long time. It was great to visit with Sarah (who also started Paris) and me and Gabby had a great time!
