Notes: As a puppy growing up in a multi-dog household Bayou was a hoarder - he has "forts" where he hides his collected loot which includes toys, shoes, hairbrushes, and pans! He is now the biggest of them all and doesn't feel the need to hoard anymore. Bayou is fellow K9 Teammate Angus' litter-mate.
Deployments: Bayou headed to Washington State on 03 April to assist with the recovery efforts from the mudslides
