Black Lab Retrieves Pot, Causes Owner's Drug Arrest Dog Wades Into Creek, Retrieves Pot, Takes It To Officer

POSTED: 9:22 am EST February 16, 2005 UPDATED: 10:56 am EST February 16, 2005

GRAPEVINE, Texas -- JD the Labrador Retriever meant well, but he has landed his owner in a mess of trouble.

Police said his owner, Matthew Porter, of Richland Hills, was playing Frisbee golf with two friends at a suburban Dallas-Fort Worth course Monday when a police officer arrived.

The officer thought he smelled burning marijuana, so he asked the men for identification and began checking for outstanding warrants.

JD, apparently sensing the party was over, waded into nearby Bear Creek, retrieved a plastic bag containing pot and brought it to the officer.

The black Lab's 25-year-old owner was charged with possessing drug paraphernalia. Micah Hays, 24, was charged with marijuana possession. The third member of the party -- a 31-year-old Mansfield man -- wasn't charged. JD was turned over to him.

Labs fold too easily under police pressure.

"it seemed like a good idea to train the dog to retrieve things when we were high. You just really feel like moving sometime you know. We found our solution in JD. We also trained him to sniff things out when we were to high to remember where we put them. It's handy when you loose your keys"

Labs are more unemployed drinking buddy than rocket scientist in the dog intelligence hierarchy.

Why is this guy being held responsible for a plastic bag his dog found?

LOL. Reminds me of the old saying about Golden Retrievers. They will lead burglars right to the valuables.....and then lick them to death.

LOL, I love this story. Our lab would retrieve our children when asked. You can tell him to go get a child by name and he would go upstairs and wake up exactly the named child. We used it as an incentive before school. You better get out of bed or I'm sending Dudley up to get you. Woirked every time.

I love the verbal gymnastics making it look as though a bag of pot just HAPPENED to fall into the pond out of the clear, blue sky, only to be retreived by a ...well, a retriever.
