Keys found! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

I worked today! This is not unusual. I worked yesterday on our Walk too. But for some reason my person was extra-extra-happy with my work today!

In case you did not know, I have a job as a Thing Finder. If you would like to read more about my job and see a video of me working, you can click here!

I find all sorts of things! This is a very fun job, I love it very much.

Today we went for an extra-long Walk in the forest and at the lake. When we got back to Car, for some reason our person did not open Car for us. Instead she started patting all of her pockets, and then she got more and more upset. She said her keys were missing!

She started pacing back and forth all over the parking lot and the road. She looked on the ground. She looked on the path. She looked inside of Car. But her keys were nowhere to be found!

Cobi tried to make her feel better by pushing into her legs, but this did not help. Our person said, "We just walked for over an hour and a half! My keys are somewhere on that walk! It is wet and raining, and I have a meeting soon! This is Very Bad!"

Our person called for a Rescue. But before the Rescue could come help us, I helped instead!!

Here is how I helped! Our person decided to do the first five minutes of our Walk again while we were waiting for Rescue. She walked very slowly and looked everywhere with her eyes. But then she got smart! She asked me to help!

She said the magic first words, which are, "Ojo, want to work?"

I said YES, yes I do! (I said this by jumping in the air and running towards her full speed.)

She gave me her palm to sniff, and she said the words, "Where's my thing?", and I was off! I used my nose to find all traces of my person's smell!

And guess what?!? I found her keys!!! Aren't I amazing!!

Okay, honestly I do not know why this was so special today. I do this kind of search all the time. Yesterday I found a hard plastic disc hiding stuffed down in some rocks. That was a hard find. Compared to that, the keys weren't hard at all!

But for some reason my person was extra-extra-happy with my work today! She gave me soft goat cheese, right out of the package! AND she gave me pieces of leftover pancake!!

I guess the keys were really really lost!

Dear cousin Ojo, we have many things in common but I will never be as help a worker as you. You must have got that gene from the other side of the family. I was helpful with barking at the UPS guy and a wandering dog today, so that counts for something, right? Your cousin Lee and handsome Phod

Wow Ojo, we are super impressed! Gail once lost her car key on a walk in some woods about 20 miles from home. We searched for about an hour (to be honest I was not much help), then walked nearly 2 miles from the car park to the nearest bus stop, caught a bus back to Aberdeen then walked another mile home from the bus stop the other end, then asked a kind neighbour to drive us back to the wood with the spare key the next morning. Just imagine, if you had been there, we would have been spared all that fuss! I think you totally deserve a WHOLE freshly cooked pancake.
Toodle pip!

Goat cheese and pancakes??!! You know you've REALLY done a good job then. We're so glad you found them--as if we had any doubt.
