Duggan, the diplomat goes to school again

The school ask my daughter if 'Duggan' could give another demonstration in Scent work as an assembly. The last one went so well, some of the parents said they wish they had known about it so they could have come before. This time they added the first and fourth grades.
My daughter gave the school a brief talk on how they train and a little about the breed and then allows the kids to take the scent and hide somewhere in the gym using their lunch bags,
or backpacks, etc. while she and Duggan leave the area.
I found out later someone had even put a lunch carryout with a bit of chicken left in it, on the floor with the backpacks. Not fair!
Duggan is extremely throrough and methodical. He never missed and they thought the most amazing thing was he sniffed on time at the leftover chicken and moved on, like, nope
that's not it.
So many backpack, so many smells, so much noise...but, he aced it and won the hearts of teachers, parents and students.
Some of the younger students ask why he didn't have a tail, or why his ears were so pointed. But Duggan took all the hugs and kisses and mauling and applause in stride
and slept very well last night and today!
Someone else took these pictures. Too far away for flash to do any good and they are dark and out of focus, so I will only include this one.

Aw Bonnie...

How nice! I love seeing people exposed to this wonderful breed in a real life fashion as opposed to how they are generally portrayed in movies or the media.

I am so glad to see that Duggan is doing so well.

Hey! Maybe your daughter should become a DT member.....

Isn't it yuki ? Now here is what makes this a amazing story on Duggan - BTW - Cressrb please jump in here and correct me on this -- Is that Duggan had a injury last year - I believe - maybe a nerve deal going on - and Duggan had some GREAT nurses tending to him - I also believe If my memory is right that Cressrb and her daughter had to help him go out with the use of a sling under him - Maybe surgery was also done - I can remember that Cressrb was just sick over this deal - as any us would be - Then to see Duggan working again ?? Priceless ! This is a truly great story - to me anyway .

Yes, Ken, just a year ago last month he had a herniated disc that rendered him paralyzed before having surgery. Had to learn to walk all over again. We reminisce about this a lot as we watch him play and run now.
