Black Pearl.

Hello everyone, its been quite a while since my last posting. Things have been a bit hectic around here. But the boat cruising season will soon be here again and we will be off to visit many new places for us all to explore.

Let me first of all introduce you to Pearl. She is a very special dog in more ways than one. Special not only because she has like me and Abbey floppy ears. Pearl was once a homeless dog who has turned her life around. Today, Pearl is a search-and-rescue dog. Because of her keen sense of smell and hearing. Pearl was sent to Japan to search for the buried survivors after the country's earthquake and the devastating follow up tsunami. Pearl's story is captured in a book for children called  "A New Job for Pearl." This is a photograph of Pearl, looking all resplendent in her bandanna. The logo on the bandanna says that Pearl is using her skills as a National Disaster Search Dog.

Pearl was taken on by the Search Dog Foundation which is a charitable non-profit organization based in California. The foundation has a mission to strengthen disaster response by recruiting rescued dogs and partnering them with fire-fighters and other first responders to find people buried alive in the wreckage of any disasters.

So today we at Canal Dog salute Pearl and her human friends and her canine companions for the work that they do.

Yip Yap.

Poppy and Abbey.
