Canine Caching Companions

Recommended Posts

Tulu is my regular caching partner, since getting a new DSLR last December she has also become my favorite subject. The most photographed dog in geocaching. LOL

 

Here are some images to get things going:

My dog used to go out with me all the time, and she still enjoys being on a trail. If I spend too long looking for a cache, she will let me know. Her range is not what it was, but 2 1/2 years ago, our vet thought she would have just weeks to live. A couple of weeks ago, I took her on a three mile hike, up to a ridge and back down to a waterfall, checking my cache as long as we were there. This photo was taken a few years ago, on our way to a cache at one of the highest points in my area.

O Meu "Cherek", já esteve num dos melhores momentos de geocaching que tive. Quando encontrei a minha #1000.

This morning we said goodbye to our companion. So this is for all the memories, including this visit to one of my caches at Dutchman's Rock. I never could get her to sniff out caches, but she served as a hiking partner, ready to take on rattlesnakes or lizards or stare down a coyote. If I spent too much time at a cache, she let me know when it was time to continue down the trail. And if I attempted to find a new route that proved to be impassable brambles, she told me when there was too much bush in bushwacking.

I'm sorry. But glad that you have good memories. :wub:

:grin: Nice Trooper, you got there!

 

Hope Special Treats are available for your Guard, there.

 

Nice!

That's a good description. Here is a, before and after picture from a hike we did last winter.

 

Before:

Here is Archie at GZ of one of the oldest caches in the world. He's a bit older and a lot gimpier now and I haven't taken him caching in quite a while...

Our Auggie loves to go geocaching. He especially likes cemeteries where he can run around and play. I've tried to teach him to sniff out geocaches, but he chooses to leave that job to me.

This is Pearl. She's a 4+ year old deaf Australian Cattle Dog. She was a rescue from Guam. We adopted her in Washington through a rescue that fundraised to get her here. We were stationed there at the time and fell in love with her. She's been my sidekick and velcro dog through tons of underways when my husband is out to sea. Now my new cache companion as well :)

 

However, we also have another sidekick named Zeus!

Zeus is also another 4+ year old deaf Australian Cattle Dog. He was originally from Texas and was owned by another Navy family, whom I met in WA after I adopted Pearl. I actually adopted their fish first, lol. Later, after we were all stationed in CA, they had a baby and realized their baby was allergic to dogs. So, unfortunately, they needed to rehome both of their dogs. Deaf dogs really aren't sought after because of their handicap, so he was having a hard time finding a new home. I obviously felt my heartstrings being tugged because of Pearl, so I opted to adopt him from her. Pearl is hard to find friends for. Due to the conditions she lived in on the island, she grew up with no socialization and aggression (which we later found after we already adopted her). So, it was a slow process getting her to meet Zeus. We had to do several meet and greets, but everything worked out and now they are inseparable :)

 

These pictures were taken recently in the Cleveland National Forest overlooking the Anza Borrego desert in Southern California.

Oh Geodarts - I'm so sorry :sad:

 

This is our 6yr old miniature poodle last year, on his first geocache. He's got a 'log my dog' tag coming - I'm quite looking forward to it!

Our littlest noonie (who's not so little anymore) walking Princess Zoe to the nearest cache. We took Zoe in after some neighbors (renters) abandoned her... she has turned into the BEST DOG EVER. :wub:

Ceres demonstrates that dogs aren't the only four legged friends that enjoy caching. This was her first find. I actually walked past the cache and she sniffed it out from its hiding place.

Hi NottheMuggle,

I can't see your attached picture, perhaps you could try it again? Thanks, -lumbricus

Edit: No it works :) Great!
