Law Dog

humorous-078_smallThere are some species just born for border inspections and not just border collies.

The astonishing thing is that a federal court found that this search was entirely lawful under the Fourth Amendment.

When Customs says that it is “securing America’s borders,” it means it. When you look at this picture, you understand what Customs means in its pledge: “Vigilance is how we ensure the safety of all Americans. We are continuously watchful and alert to deter, detect and prevent threats to our Nation. We demonstrate courage and valor in the protection of our Nation.”

    At the intersection/conjunction of nose and hind end?

  2. I know that my public school edumakation left me lacking in geographical knowledge, but where exactly is the U.S./Australian border?

    Socrates is ‘essentially’ a man, philosophically speaking, but is he ‘necessarily’ thus?

  5. Former Federal LEO: “And no, not all “law dogs” are sniffers….”

    Yet Socrates is still a man?

  7. Regardless if a dog is trained as a termite sniffer or a drug sniffer, pheromone sniffing trumps all others.

    “Who do those two dogs sniffing each other remind me of???”


    Kind of reminds me of that tortured little scene down on the Bayou post-Katrina. You’re doing a heck of job there whitey! Not sure who is Bush and who is Brown is though.

  10. If those two pups don’t put the fear of God into anyone thinking of crossing the border illegally or of bringing in illegal drugs what would? If the Pentagon purchased these dogs for their customs duty they would probably cost $100,000 each. Who do those two dogs sniffing each other remind me of???
