Jock was adopted when he was three years old. His previous owner, a member of CARDA, was killed in a mountain climbing accident. He joined our family and became our Gentle Giant. He had the Determination of the Labrador and the Gentleness of the Golden. He went on many searches with me in a lot of different environments. He accepted the new puppies and even got to like the boys. I retired him from searching in 1999. From then on he was the guy in the back of the truck waiting for some one to come over and pet him.
Jock was my search dog, my playmate and my friend.
