Bloodhounds are recognized for their long, wrinkled faces and distinctive bark. But they are most prized for their ability to find what, or who, is lost.
Bloodhounds are considered one of the canine kingdoms most tenacious and gifted scent-finders. Summit Search and Rescue employs the breed to help track and locate missing people. The group is called by area law enforcement to help track missing children, hikers and even Alzheimer patients.
The Search and Rescue organization has realized that detective canines are also great therapy dogs, with special skill in putting kids at ease.
Artist Sonya Clark‘s work is now featured at the Phillips Museum of Art in a newly installed exhibit called, “Sonya Clark: Finding Freedom.” The exhibit features a large-scale fabric installation, and Clark’s work interweaves history, craft, and race to create mixed-media pieces that “celebrate blackness and address racial stereotypes and tensions.”
