SNIFFIN’ FOR CONTRABAND

June 30, 2008

Hey everyone, it’s Sissy. I bet you didn’t know that not only am I a Chihuahua,  I am a working dog. My “Official” working dog title is “Bag Sniffer”. It is my job to check all bags coming into the house, right at the front door. You never know what could be in those bags. Maybe there is a chip in there that I can savor!. Like a drug sniffing dog, I am highly trained to sniff out and detect any type of contraband, such as stuffies, squeakies, bones and bully sticks. There is  nothing that comes and goes through this house that I don’t know about.  NOTHING…I tell ya!

 THIS BAG SMELL VEEERY SUSPICIOUS……

 UH OH…I HAVE A BULLY STICK HIT!…… 

THIS HAS TO BE CONFISCATED, MARKED AS EXHIBIT “A”, AND HANDED OVER TO THE AUTHORITIES…. 

 THANK GOODNESS…I’M THE AUTHORITIES!

 

JOBS FOR DOGS

December 24, 2007

I just love to read about dogs that have jobs, and I have a few blogs about working dogs . There is Endale , a very famous service dog in England who is so amazing, and another blog about Jail Sniffing Dogs. A lot of dogs work for their keep, such as hunting dogs, herding dogs, dogs that work for the police by apprehending criminals, sniffing out drugs, and finding lost people.

Everyone knows that I have three Chihuahuas, and I don’t think it’s too unreasonable for me to want them to work.  Today I pondered over my morning coffee, trying  to figure out what kinds of jobs they would be qualified for. 

Let’s see…..Sissy could clean floors! She has a lot of experience, and is better at cleaning floors than a Roomba! Every time I cook, she sits patiently, and as soon as any tidbit drops on the floor….BAM, it’s gone!

I think Tinky would be an excellent begger! She could sit on her haunches at an intersection, with her front paws curled up to her chest, have that pitiful “hungry” look on her face, and carry a sign that says, “Will work for food.” The motorists would not be able to resist her, and she would clean up!

I don’t know about a job for Jonesy. He is too neurotic. I think he would have to go on State Disability. He has a good sniffer, but that’s only good for sniffing out treats that I hide in my pocket.

Okay, it’s a done deal..they are getting a job! As soon as I finish this blog, I am going to post their resume on Pupster.com.

What kind of a job do you think your dog would be qualified for?

JAIL TO UTILIZE DRUG SNIFFING DOG

October 23, 2007

I read an article in the Simi Valley Acorn the other day where the Ventura County Sheriff’s Foundation donated funds to purchase a K9 police dog to help detect drugs in jail facilities.

Ghera, a female Labrador retriever, was purchased in June and went into action in July. Her handler is Deputy Charles McDonald. McDonald and Ghera went through 120 hours of training together before starting their assignment.

The K9 officer was needed to help prevent drugs from being smuggled into the jail system since a recent court decision has restricted strip searches. Ghera will work at the pretrial Detention Facility, the Todd Road Jail, the Juvenile Justice Center, court holding locations, and wherever inmates have access.

I never thought of having drug sniffing dogs in jails and prisons, and now I am wondering why they are not used more widely. It is an extremely useful tool to prevent drug smuggling, and if the inmates were not able to obtain drugs, it would aid on their drug rehabilitation. Kudos to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Foundation!
