A few weeks into training, Lulu began to show signs that she simply "wasn't interested in detecting explosive odours", the blog post said. They get lazy, stop caring, or just guess to get through it the subject, but usually that bad days only last a day or two.
Lulu was the smallest trainee in her all-female class of six dogs, according to the Central Intelligence Agency.
Instead, she'll be living with her handler, who chose to adopt her even though she won't be sniffing out bombs.
Lulu the Labrador Retriever, it seems, couldn't change the fact that she was "not enjoying her job" as a CIA trainee and has been dropped from the agency's puppy class.
Puppies in the program, like human students in the classrooms, can have good and bad days when learning something new.
One user wrote: 'Dogs are like people...even if someone is able to do a job, doesn't mean they like it or are cut out for it. Thank you, CIA, for having Lulu's best interests at heart'.
The CIA told the sad tale of Lulu being dropped from the program using a series of tweets.
After a great start to her training in the USA intelligence agency, she began to lose interest in "detecting explosive odours", and was relieved of her duties.
Lulu was adopted by her handler, and now spends her says "playing with kids, sniffing out rabbits and squirrels in the backyard, and eating meals and snacks out of a dog dish".
But the story has a happy ending. The same is true during our puppy classes.
Lulu was adopted by her handler, but he still needs an explosive detection K9 partner at work.
Amen. We also commend Lulu for choosing her own path and taking life by leash, hopefully leading her to much safer and more enjoyably lackadaisical pastures.
