Like you, Bonster, I don't have any real qualms about the dogs having jobs out of the line of fire; dogs love to have work to do and it also helps keep us aware of that fact.

I read a story somewhere about a Jack Russell that was being trained for U.S. Customs work, sniffing contraband in luggage. He was doing everything right, except they couldn't find his "thing" - the particular contraband he was particularly keen on. The finally found it . . . cheese! Now, who would have thought there was a problem of illegal cheese coming into the U.S.? There must be, 'cause this little guy was so good at it and found so much that there were actually death threats sent in against him!

LOL! Just file that one in the "Weird World" drawer . . .
