not this year

Due to the tight economic times and not wanting to leave my poor girlfriend with the kids alone Elle and I will not be working search and rescue this season. We were invited back to BC but will not make it so I can work my so called real job. We will continue to train but due to the conflict between the local search and rescue and myself I will not work here in AZ.O Well there loss its a real bummer but I got to pay the bills.

Well, that certainly stinks. I think its awfully commendable that you are doing the "right" thing, though, as much as it stings a bit right now

John so sorry I know how you love the work. However, it is very commendable for you to put your girlfriend and kids first. Where in AZ are you? I am in Scottsdale until Sunday at Cynosport; top USDAA agility dogs, flyball, and dock dogs.

I understand, I have made many cutbacks myself due to the economy. I work as a 911 dispatcher and I can tell you I understand the importance of a SAR dog, but your family is more important. Don't woory you and your dog will be back out there soon.

in bullhead

Im in this rotten little town called bullhead city.the summers are very hot sometimes 130s. There is not much to do besides go to the river and the casinos and dont get me started about the people I have met more dregs of society than anywhere in the world but I have family out here and with my dad having parkensons I need to stick around to help out any way I can and he has a real connection with elle. So for now I will put things on hold for the sake of my family.
