Good observation regarding how flat-footed I was at the start of this search! I hadn’t noticed that. From about :12 to :50 (i.e., more than 30 seconds) I stood in almost exactly the same place, and Blackie barely moved as well. Only the leash entanglement actually got me to budge!

I think I wanted to let her choose the direction, but with the clock ticking, it would have been more productive to for me to set a direction and ask her to go along with it (as I did in Part B). I somewhat wonder whether that may have affected a couple of the searches we did this morning, which I’ll post a bit later – I’ll have to review those videos in that context, and in the meantime, will perhaps redo this exercise another time or two, just for grins.
