Old Scool, when you have 15 minutes to "invest", try any one of these:

http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...be.MhaiTPUDF5o

Try to imagine over 1 million spectators spread over 15 miles or so (7 Mile to the Loop in Pontiac) and back...4 lanes each direction...and everything from $1 million exotics to WWII Half-Tracks... It originally was a One Day-only/One Time event but, over 20 events (this August), has now evolved into a week-long AutoLoveFest, same weekend as the 2nd Michigan NASCAR event.

Imagine Macy's T-Giving Parade only, instead of balloons, there's cars...and trucks...and more car's 'n trucks...

Bucket List event for sure!

Hard to believe he was that small. He is now over 50 pounds and growing. I think he has more torque than a V6.

I was told the military wants them back rude and belligerent. That part comes easy to Ppirro and me

At just over five months, he has calmed down a bit or learned to more peacefully co-exist. He is very independent, but excellent concentration when engaged in training work. There is an acid test all MWDs are subject to when they are returned from the foster families. I think Ppirro will do well in what is best described as chaos in the kennel area. We took a weekend trip about two months ago. He didn't stay in the kennel, but with a civilian administrator from Lackland. When we picked him up on Monday afternoon the administrator told us most dogs are unsure or afraid to enter the kennel area. It is loud and intimidating. Ppirro walked in and through as though he 'owned' the place. That is a key reason we are keeping him rude and belligerent. When he returns he should be THE Alpha Dog in the kennel.

All levity aside, they gave us Ppirro with the caveat he may be too much dog, too much of an alpha high drive dog to control. He is more dog than we could have imagined, but that is also his charm.

In an on base training exercise the handler was seeking to control, dominate Ppirro. He yanked the leash so hard Ppirro went flying against a wooden cabinet. The handler was in mid sentence explaining to the group this is how you make a MWD submissive. Before he could get the words out, Ppirro launched himself into the back of the handler. The handler was face down and Ppirro was standing on his back. No biting. Just a little rough play. I swear he was grinning ear to ear. We do play pretty rough around the house

They switched handlers. Ppirro was then a model student. The short answer is I think he will become a dual purpose MWD.

Agreed.

for being able to do it. I would probably end up kidnapping the dog. It takes a very strong family to do what you guys are doing. I know it's going to be hard to give him back but thank you and your family for doing what your doing.

We are privileged to have become friends with a couple of EODs and a number of military people that have worked with bomb sniffing dogs. They have to man said the dogs are invaluable in execution of the mission and perhaps more so for morale. My age has prevented me from making a real contribution since 9.11. Fostering Ppirro is a contribution and our shared sacrifice. When we turn in Ppirro in mid July, we will all understand a bit more how the parents of those that serve feel when their sons and daughters leave for boot camp.

It isn't a day we look forward too. If we did not believe in the value, in the mission for Military Working Dogs, there is no way we could return him. Ppirro is part of our family and we'll watch from a distance his progress and service with great pride knowing we played a part in his success.

The kids know and understand the mission, but I have not shown them this video and hope they don't find it.



We all read Soldier Dogs before we got Ppirro. http://www.soldierdogs.com/

Mac, we had no idea Ppirro was a recruiting poster boy. Thanks for posting it to my FB page!!!!

We have let the program know that Ppirro is a Basica and only on loan to the military

If for any reason Ppirro doesn't make it in the program i.e. injury we want him back. Once he is in service, the adoption priority is the current handler, then the foster family. The trainers and handlers tell us that Ppirro will likely remember us after his service is complete, but will be a different dog than we remember based on his service experience. It doesn't matter. We'll bring him back home.

Very nice... but he will definitely remember you all and be really well trained too.

We had to give up a dog due to military moves and a short stint in an apartment that didn't take pets. 3 years later we got one of the puppies and had that dog 15 years until last year. (Basset Hound).

Hadn't seen the dog in 3 years and when we went to see the puppies they warned us that she wouldn't let anyone get close to them. I walked in reached right into the pile of nursing pups and grabbed one up w/ no problem.
