http://ow.ly/dIfpY This search has me shut out of a room, but I still know someone is in need. My bark is my way of alerting.
We saw hundreds of kids on Saturday at the Youth Day on the Range in Princeton. They asked a lot of good questions. Thanks to Dr. Maxwell and all of the organizers. We appreciate the invititation to participate in this great event.
This weekend, I focused on finding people and then barking a lot. It is not supposed to matter whether the person is hidden or not.
Imagine seeing me come over a rubble pile. This picture shows me finding our (pretend) missing miner. A successful exercise. Thanks to all of the guys at the Highland Tunnel mine as well as the Chapmanville and the East KY mine rescue teams.
It's dark underground. You can see me in the middle of the group. I am getting ready for my search. In this exercise, I was called in to help the mine rescue guys find a missing miner. Again, this was only a training exercise. The mine rescue teams we worked with were the Chapmanville Team and the East KY Team.
This weekend I trained with two of our mine rescue teams at the Highland Tunnel Mine in Logan County. This is me and my handler, Rick as we are headed into the mine. I'll post more pictures later.
Don't forget to show your support for coal with a Canines for Coal sticker. Check it out on my website http://www.alphaminerescuedog.com/index…/community-and-kids/
The Mining Engineering Magazine recently did a story about me. The story dates back to our participation in a national Mining Engineering event in Seattle, Washington. Check it out.
