Love the videos with Kiba! I was a K9 handler for my first 10 years in the military and really miss that companionship. Had a HUGE German Shepherd that would keep me warm during a winter in Korea...not hammock material though.
Your video made me think of the last dog I worked with. We did a lot of presidential and other DV support, traveled quite a bit and stayed in a lot of hotels. That dog was great at explosive detection but seriously lacked survival skills. We would check in, head to the room, I would open the door, and he would bolt to the bed or sofa (whichever had the best angle to the TV) and wait for me to turn it on for him. Ridiculously spoiled, he was. Would not eat chicken, only beef. Hated wet or cold ground so much that he would pick one paw up at a time on a rotational basis so at least one paw was not on the ground. Very quirky until it was time to sniff bombs or bite people
Great dog to finish up that part of my career with but WOW, I could not imagine him out in the woods.
Thanks for the video...and all the other great ones as well.
