NEWS

2 RETIREMENTS 

 

Sad news this month as two of the Wasdale Searchdogs retire after a combined total of 18 years on the callout list.

 

Steve Walter has retired Rosie and Penny Kirby has retired Pippi (below Left).  This will be a loss to the Wasdale team and the wider Cumbrian teams although Penny still continues as a handler with her younger searchdog Olli.

 

We wish them both plenty of fun, fuss and rest in their retirement.

CALLOUTS ATTENDED

 

A 'Full Page' means that all dog teams were requested to attend; 'Local Dogs Only' means that only the team dogs were requested.

 

Where the Dog Team has a LOCATE - this means that the missing person's location had already been identified (eg lights seen, whistles heard, rough location given to team) and the dog has pinpointed their exact position.

 

Where the Dog Team has a FIND - this means that the missing person's location was not known and the dog found them with no other assistance.
