RE: Thank god? No! Thank me!!
Great story and awesome service you two provide! Have to hand it to our four legged friends - now it is some of the two legged kind that I wonder about.

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

So I asked ManlyGirl "Are search and rescue dogs also cadaver dogs?" She says, "Quite often. It's the same skill set." Do the dogs behave any differently when they find a living human than when they find a cadaver? Or is it more like "Work's work." for them?

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

It depends entirely on the dog and the situation. They know they are looking for either human or dead human scent.

My k9s show no marked difference when approaching a live person vs a cadaver. Except in the instance of drugs. Bath salts is a problem around my area. Someone who shot up some salt and bugged out had probably OD'ed somewhere. My partner would not approach the body and was not "excited" once he got on a scent.

If there is a difference, it's very subtle.

You should train your dog to require thanks or it attacks.

Think I got it. It's work's work until they smell "WHOA! Get a hazmat crew in here pronto! That shit'll kill me if I get too close. ... That shit's gonna kill you if get too close! It's over that way. Get some MOPP-4 suits first."

I think I understand what the look is, but I might be wrong. Is it a little but of "duh Hobo" mixed with "Oh... sh- Blink?"

This is so true and so unfortunate. I see it all the time with my mom.
