If you read this blog you'll read about my dog. Scout is a Belgian Malinois, born October 26, 2017. He has all the qualities of a Mal, good and, well, mal. I have raised two German Shepherds and this breed is NOT a smaller version, of GSDs, although many mistake him for one. Mals are smaller, lighter, and more streamlined. Also, they have been portrayed as GSDs on steroids. I would have to agree.
Mals need a job. The job I chose for him is to search for missing persons in the NM wilderness. It is a tall order--training takes up to two years. Scout and I will both be challenged. We joined the Sandia Search Dog team in ABQ last September and so far Scout is up to the task.
Future blogs will be a potpouri of dog stories and travel narratives. Thanks for joining us on our journeys.
