SAD NEWS

 

Our thoughts are with Search Dog Handler Elly Whiteford after her recent loss of retired Search Dog Mac (15.3.2015). Mac in his time had attended may callouts, the most noticeable was a find on Skiddaw in the hight of a blizzard.

'Sleep well Mac'

Elly still cuddles her other two dogs Meg and Bracken, who both have Search Dog tales.
