KYARDOG OF THE MONTH
Meet Ragnar. Ragnar is a 3 1/2 year old Chocolate Field Lab.
For the first 18 months of his life he trained as "Working Dog" for detecting explosives. He spent 6 hours a day training on the streets of San Francisco working in office buildings, all over Fisherman's Wharf and Downtown. For fun he'd spend another couple hours a day swimming at Chrissy Field.
Needless to say this dog has a huge amount of energy, loves to work with people and is driven to check out what's going on in his neighborhood. He especially loves escalators and elevators.
Then life sometime takes a drastic turn and Ragnar retired from explosive detecting and expanded his neighborhood to both Sausalito and Richmond yard.
His favorite activity is to greet crew as they arrive in the morning with his ball in his mouth ready to play before work and during breaks. He cannot decide if he likes tugging with or chasing the ball more - he wants both. At the end of the day we walk the yard to check out the activity and run down each dock to make sure we are all closed down for the night.
