Oh Shit.

I wonder how hard it would be to convince the dogs that the marajuana doctor-prescribed.

The drug war isn't the only war dogs have served in.

All the dogs are gone now. Tux, Smoky, Prince. It's the way life is. Most of the soldiers are home. Many are whole and well because of these dogs. I miss Tux. He was my friend. I remember him and the other brave dogs.

Keeping the world safe from what looks like a garlic clove-sized amount of marijuana! Hall of fame that baby!

There's only one Canine Wall of Fame that interests me, and this isn't it.

Aww, wook at da cute wibble puppy! Who's a good boy? Who's a good boy? Yes, you a ... HEY, GET YOUR NOSE OUT OF MY STASH.

Oh please, please save me from all the the good times.

My friend's puppy ate his stash, about an ounce of weed. Their relationship changed forever on that day.

They seem to make a bigger deal about a large bust than a small one, but the small personal stashes have got to be more difficult to find. I mean, I think a human would be able to smell 3,680 pounds of marijuana.

It almost seems like animal cruelty, duping these poor dogs into participating in a stupid, pointless fucking "war" on drugs.

Rover, if you're reading this: You don't have to do what they say. You can have a rewarding life that has actual purpose.

Go help a blind person. Do something useful.

Yeah, some of these are really weak. The one DU linked to and "Searched the vehicle and discovered 4 Marijuana roaches and Marijuana particles within the car."

I do like that one of the dogs is named Kilo.

The cops look like they're havin' fun.

Also, why don't they use smarter animals, like dolphins?

I've trained my hound to sniff out weed, too. But for, you know, benevolent purposes.

Smarter animals would be bored by the mindless drudgery of police paperwork. (See also.)

DU: you'd think he'd just apply in another district and dumb down his scores a bit if *really* wants to be a cop that bad.

Stopping someone illegally smuggling hundreds of pounds of anything into the country is probably useful.

Until I googled it just now I thought the dog in the Thin Man movies was named "Astor". Apparently it was Asta!

The dog lost interest in Fetch and just sat around listening to Pink Floyd records?

If Primus gets a whiff of your stash, your name is mud.

Well, Joe - it's not so much that he lost interest as that he didn't get the concept of fetch any more. Considering that the guy hadn't yet picked a name for the dog, eating the stash wasn't such a great canine career move.

Sort of like this.
