They had a line of cans set up and some of them had some kind of bullet or bomb in them.The dog would stop when he smelled those scents and refuse to move forward until the officer investigated the can.They also had a line of different types of luggage in the back. The dog sniffed along each seam of the piece to get a scent from inside of it.The officer said that they really trust their dogs.
This Handler didn't do too well- even I could tell that these sheep were herding the dog! I've never been a dog girl but the folks here were passionate about this breed for this purpose.

He ran out the door with all the kids behind him.That was the end of our time for prayer and meditation. I knew then that there would be no need to have his eyesight checked either.
They followed this "rabbit trail" which is homeschool talk for "Squirrel" (a metaphor from the movie), representing interesting distractions that divert one's attention from the task at hand. That isn't always a bad thing!
By placing our baby pool on a hill, the hole in it which makes it useless as a swimming pool became a non-issue.They turned the hole uphill, filled that section with grass and put water in the downhill part so that this amphibian could have both a wet and dry environment. Shade was the next necessity because turtles usually get under cover in the heat. In fact, the best time to find a turtle is just after a rain storm, but this one was out on a clear morning.
We have seen quite a few box turtles over the years and this one seemed bigger than most.
The little guy was enjoying every minute of the excitement on this pretty morning.
Sam offered the turtle some fish food.
It was nice to see the kids having some fun and working together to create a habitat for this "pet for a day".
We kept the turtle until evening and then released him so that he could get back to safety and not be harmed by being in captivity for too long.
These guys were out in the woods and found this cute little pot in the dirt. They are pretty sure it is from Ancient Greece! They came over to show it to me near our well where we were expecting servicemen to arrive.
