Have you heard of "Beagle Brigade"?

I am cute, sociable, and mellow and this is the reason why I am a good pet. But it also makes me a good federal agent. You for sure are thinking how are these two things related but keep readingIn 1984, the U.S. Department of Agriculture decided to use Beagles to sniff out contraband food being brought into the United States at the Los Angeles International Airport. This experiment succeeded due to our super kick-ass nose. Furthermore, we could be trained to identify specific food articles while bypassing those that weren't contraband. For example, I understand that even if the plant material is packed in the shampoo or dirty laundry, I simply go through all different types of smells and I am able to find what is needed.

Nowadays "Beagle Brigade" patrols the baggage-claim areas at more than 20 international airports and other points of entry into the United States. Career with the Beagle Brigade usually lasts between six and ten years.

So in the end I did it only for them you know. Another thing people say is that during labor there should be something easy to clean under the dog but seriously I am a lady and I am not going to sit on some plastic bag or something else. I needed my comfy blanket there with me. Luckily my human often understands me. During the morning time I e
