This month's story is a bit different from the others we have featured. This story of Coco and Tommy is related to just how important SEARCH AND RESCUE dogs are to us and those they serve. Thanks for sharing... Over the years she has shown just how good she is with her nose when we go to the forest to play. I then trained CoCo to be a Search & Rescue dog (scent). Since that time, she has four rescues, and four retrievals. We belong to the International Mountain Bike Association as a Patrol Group. I've incorporated the canines to start our Volunteer Search & Rescue Group. When we first saw CoCo as a puppy, she was owned by a drug dealer who was not taking care of her. She was a just a possession, with four legs. My wife and I decided we had to rescue her from this creep. We are known as: North Hills Mountaineers Patrol Group (IMBA) Volunteer Search & Rescue Unit - Canine. Coco and I love being a part of the mountain bike scene(s), parades, festivals, and any other invitation to participate in!! Kids and CoCo together are the most priceless picture! -Tommy
