Feral puppy finds work in the mountains

Today I would like to introduce you to my dog Talus.  Tali, as she is lovingly called, has just started in the Breckenridge Ski Patrol Avalanche Dog training program.  This journey will take Tali and me on a two to three year quest that will hopefully end in our certification as a Colorado Avalanche Rapid Deployment Team. 
In the coming days, weeks, months, and years I will bring you along with us in our extensive drills, games, ups, downs, and adventures.  My goal with this blog is to track and share the progress we make as a team.  I will share with you our training, the games we play, pictures, videos, and try to explain the process as we go through it.  
As I post this it has been a little under three weeks already that Tali and I have been working together on the mountain.  I will try to fill in the back story and keep up with our current events.  I look forward to the coming months and please write with your questions, or come to Breckenridge Ski Area and say hello.

I hear Tali is making great strides, but I think I'd trust Riddle more to dig me out.

You guys need to meet our new pup, Porter.
