Sniffer dogs sacked for lewd behaviour

ETHAN MCNERN

TWO Thai strays who became ace sniffer dogs at an airport near the notorious "Golden Triangle" opium-producing region have been fired for urinating on luggage and sexually harassing female passengers.

The pair, Mok and Lai, had been plucked from obscurity under a programme initiated by King Bhumibol Adulyadej to turn strays into police dogs, the Bangkok Post said on Sunday.

They won plaudits from police for their work in sniffing out drugs at northern Thailand's Chiang Rai airport, near the border with Laos and Myanmar.

But so many passengers complained about their unacceptable behaviour that they had to be fired.

"He liked to pee on luggage while searching for drugs inside," Mok's former handler, Police Lieutenant Colonel Jakapop Kamhon, said. "He also liked to hold on to women's legs."

"Both were just as good as foreign dogs trained for use in drug missions," he added. "But they were stray dogs, so their manners were worse than those of foreign breeds."

Mok and Lai have now been relocated to work on a farm, herding chickens and pigs, the paper said.

Neutering certainly would be worth a try, as well as some targeted training.

We have TSA for that.

Sounds like he has his targeting down fine.

The dog was not a coke fiend. He just like the smell of it.

:^)

Ironically, this actually can be a problem with drug dogs. Many years ago an Air Force dog handler told me that dogs getting accidental snorts of cocaine was very real concern, since the dose could destroy the dog's sense of smell and leave it fit only for guard duty.

(The image of a German Shepard Dog on Bolivian marching powder doesn't exactly make me feel warm and fuzzy either, come to think of it.)

Beware of strange dogs.

Guy I knew, was on a farm and a Mississippi hound dog came by. Guy gave it a pat on the head and the hound must have considered it a gesture of deeper meaning as the dog started humping the guy’s leg and wouldn’t stop.

Guy finally pried the dog off his leg long enough to manage to get in his car and drive off.

Funny!

How people tolerate their treatment at airports is a mystery to me. I've forgotten the term for it (people who enjoy torment) but they must constitute a substantial percentage of airline travelers.
