This story is about 'honorary beagles' aka bloodhounds.
My son lives near a police dog training facility well known in this region. He rents a house next door to the place where these police officers are housed with their dogs while they are in training. The program lasts about 4 weeks, so he has new neighbors frequently from around the country, and enjoys meeting all the dogs and officers.
Earlier today, a group from Tennessee, asked my son to be a 'fugitive' for a group of bloodhounds to track inside the city limits. They asked him to climb in his truck and drive about about one mile away taking several turns and switchbacks. The only thing they had was his baseball cap.
He said it was amazing, but they found him; he had even hidden his truck inside the ambulance barn at the hospital he works at! He fell in love with the bloodhounds, said they were so friendly and gentle.....LOVE attention....but when it came time to work....they were ALL nose.
Every month, there are different breeds of dogs in training from various states. So far, his favorites have been the bloodhounds and their jolly dispositions.
