LOL! Bomb-Sniffing Dog Fired From CIA For Refusing To Sniff Bombs

After weeks of CIA training, labrador Lulu began to show signs she "wasn't interested in detecting [any] explosive odour".

Some people just aren't cut out for the realities of a high-pressure work environment - and it would seem the same goes for dogs. The dog's handler had high hopes of her becoming the CIA's latest bomb-sniffing talent, but it was not meant to be.

It started out well, according to a "pupdate" on the CIA's website, but soon started to go downhill.
A few weeks into training, Lulu began to show signs that she simply "wasn't interested in detecting explosive odours", the blog post said.

"Lulu was no longer interested in searching for explosives. Even when they could motivate her with food and play to search, she was clearly not enjoying herself any longer," the post said.

The post say that the mental and physical wellbeing of sniffer dogs is CIA's priority, so they "made the extremely difficult decision to do what's best for Lulu and drop her from the programme".

But it is not all bad news, as handlers have the option to adopt dogs who are dropped. Lulu now has a new home, and spends her days chasing rabbits and squirrels in the garden - less stressful. Smiles!
