Seafaring dog follows an elusive whale trail
from The Wall Street Journal
It is a unique partnership: Elizabeth Seely, a 30-year-old wildlife biologist, and a black Lab named Tucker. Ten years ago, Tucker wandered the streets of North Seattle, undernourished, frightened and likely destined to be euthanized as an unwanted pet. Instead, Tucker got lucky. Rescued by a shelter, he was turned over to Conservation Canines, the University of Washington unit that employs Ms. Seely as a dog handler. Tucker became an asset to scientists because of his acute sense of smell and delirious work ethic.
