Man's Best Friend II

Meet a trio of special dogs and their human companions.

First meet HRCH UH Elmgren's Gumbo Special, or just Gumbo for short. Gumbo and his handler Joy Dunigan, secretary of the Coastal Empire Hunting Retrievers Club, will pursue success in an Upland Hunt test.

Next, meet Herbert, a service dog, and his friend James Panuska, who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis. Herbert helps James with his daily chores and gives James the freedom and confidence to explore the outdoors; the pair are frequent fishing partners and outdoor enthusiasts.

And lastly, meet Tracker, a German Shepard, and his partner Sgt. Johnny Johnson, a WRD law enforcement officer. Tracker and his partner are a very effective wildlife resources law enforcement tool and they'll try out their special apprehension techniques on our own Michael Skinner!
