New series of 'Ramblings' features SARDA mutts
I just heard a moderately interesting half-hour programme on Radio 4. It'll be available on iPlayer shortly I assume.
It was the first in a new series of 'Ramblings' presented by Clare Balding. The programme was recorded on Dartmoor and Balding was out with the local Search and Rescue Team and their dogs. She's rather less irritating (but considerably less comely) than La Bradbury so probably worth a listen
Thanks for the linky, Skip, didn't catch it earlier as I was with a student.
I like this:
"Alex Lyons is a dog handler with the Tavistock-Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team. He and several members of his team - and their dogs - take Clare for a wild, wet and windy walk on Dartmoor. Clare sees how the rescue dogs work, and asks why anyone would want to spend their leisure time doing a voluntary job which is exhausting and occasionally upsetting. The answer? A sense of fulfilment, the opportunity to spend time in beautiful and remote countryside, and - of course - the joy of working with highly trained and intelligent dogs (who make their presence felt, and heard, throughout the programme)."
And I suspect Max may be more intelligent than his handler
Hi Kate, "And I suspect Max may be more intelligent than his handler "
Eh? He's not Welsh!
