    Hi guys,

    This is where you can talk to your classmates about whatever you wish – so get to know each other better here!

    Hello folks,

    Morels fruiting in southern and central Minnesota and Wisconsin. I’ve only gotten out one day, though, since I live in Duluth MN (a couple hours north of where they’re currently fruiting) and because I’m currently parenting two daughters, one foreign exchange student, a 14-year-old shorthair who needs more and more support, and a tiny wirehair puppy who of course is all consuming.

    It’s this wirehair, Mo, with whom I’ll be working in this course.

    I look forward to “meeting” all of you, and of course seeing pics of your dogs!

    Alana, I did have a chance to get out for a half day looking for morels in the Driftless Area of SW Wisconsin–had some success, but it was early in the season (and we found some cut stumps as well). Hope you’ve had a chance to get on some yourself!

    Just graduated to simple box hides with Mo this morning–video will be coming (on the appropriate thread) soon!

    Hello everyone,
    Dorie and I are a little late getting started but we’ll catch up in a couple of days. She’s a seasoned NW dog and I’m looking forward to learning truffle hunting with her.
    Cheers,
    Elaine

    Does anyone know how to edit a post that I made on my homework thread? I just posted my homework and have an additional comment. The class instructions say that editing a post is preferable to creating an additional post, so I’d like to try that. Any tips would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Hello Annie, I just edited my most recent post. If you pull up your homework thread, you should see some “shadow” text at the upper right corner of your post–on the right side of the gray bar. “Edit” should be there. The text is slightly darker gray, designed to be visually unintrusive; it’s possible you’ll have to adjust the brightness of your monitor to see it easily. I know my eyes don’t discriminate grays and blacks in dim light as well as they used to!

    Just click on “Edit” and you should then be able to modify and resubmit your post.

    Thanks Curt!

    Annie, let us know if you have any other problems editing.

    Thanks Curt, for answering my question! But I must still be missing something–I don’t have the “edit” option the way you describe. I have 2 light grey words/links at the top right of my posts: they are “REPLY” and “#54..” (the post number). Edit is not one of my options.

    Not a big deal, for sure! I’ll just be sure I do everything perfectly the first time. Haha! 🙂

    HI: I just wanted to mention a great harness that I use, that is actually from the UK. My dog does not really like harnesses, but this one is soft and he likes it. It is the Perfect Fit Harness, it is light soft and adjustable. I have to places to clip on it, front or back. I do use it as a walking harness, but also in scent work. You will see it it one of my videos, but I thought I would mention this harness for those looking.

    Those look pretty neat Bev, we will have to check them out. I do like the idea of fleece lined harness.

    The ones Kristin and I use currently are the k-9 Julius harness. It is a European manufacturer. They work well for us in the wild as they offer a bit more coverage to protect from sharp objects, weather, and can provide a bit of warmth when we are out in the winter.

    The trick is in finding what is right for you and fits your dog well!

    Hi Elaine and Dorie: Yay, another GSD! I know what you mean about methodical workers, just love to see GSD’s work. Dorie looks like a lovely girl.

    I use the Perfect Fit Harnesses for walking too. Millie also has a Klin leather harness for tracking but think I’m goign to get a Julius K9 for scentwork as I think they do give a bit more coverage
