How??? Has a 10 year partnership gone by so fast??? It seems like yesterday! This was Rush’s first deployment. And it was the tornadoes IN MY HOMETOWN!! We walked in as a newly certified “Can we do this” and left as “ Zero doubt”. And.... he has been “ THAT DOG” ever since. I thank my lucky stars every day for his USAR ability and for being the sunshine of my world. ...
