    Time to bring back the Golden Fleece awards ...

    If you'd like to do some research and have your mutt earn his keep at the same time, $650K in grant money is going into the commode.

    Government Security News: Explosive detection by canines to undergo a thorough examination (Oct 30 2012)

    TSA is looking for ways to improve the ability of canines to detect explosives, and issued a broad agency announcement on Oct. 24 to gather white papers from prospective contractors who can contribute to such research.

    According to its solicitation, TSA wants to better understand the “olfactory abilities and limitations of canines” and the “variables affecting the canines’ performance.”

    Read the qualifications. Your mutt has to be able to sniff Pistole's butt for 10 minutes and then still be able to alert on some C4 buried in a stack of luggage.
