Published: June 23, 2013.
Jericho Parker trains dogs to conduct searches of all kinds, sniffing out drugs, explosives, or cadavers. And to rescue the living. Whenever a disaster strikes, he and his Shepherd Lucy locate and save the victims other first responders might never find.
Now, preparing to leave rescue work, Parker dwells on the people--and the dogs--who helped him find his place in the world.
