On Tuesday, January 10, 2012 Mrs. Oshinski, 7th grade
science teacher invited Sherri and Belle from German Shepherd Search and Rescue
Dog Association to come in and talk about canine search and rescue. The class
had just finished a section on forensics.
Sherri presented the who, what, where, why and how of canine
search and rescue and demonstrated some
of the obedience requirements with Belle and why they are important. She
included stories from some searches the team had taken.
The students asked some excellent questions and at the end,
those that wanted to, spent time petting Belle. Sherri passed out trading cards
for Belle and bookmarks for the teen novel “Dangerous Turn Ahead”.
