Thank You Leslie
The photographer was able to capture the element of focus in each of these dogs - which is maybe why they are able to search and rescue.
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
I'll bet that many people have forgotten about the official roles the dogs played, and never knew the 'unofficial' jobs (providing comfort, etc.) they did.
Thanks for posting this, Leslie.
