As humans, many of us have had the experience of trying out for something and not making the team. Or what about switching majors in college? You get through a few classes in your chosen major. Then you realize that this is not what you want to do with your life. Well, apparently dogs can relate to this feeling too. One drug-sniffing CIA dog named Lulu was totally bored with the training. The CIA then chose to release her from the program.
Lulu Gets Let Go From Job
A CIA official released this statement, “We’re sad to announce that a few weeks into training, Lulu began to show signs that she wasn’t interested in detecting explosive odors. Sometimes a pup is bored and needs more playtime, sometimes they need a little break, or it’s a minor medical condition a like a food allergy. But for some dogs, like Lulu, it becomes clear that the issue isn’t temporary. Instead, this just isn’t the job they are meant for.”
But this is not the end of the road for Lulu’s career. She found a better job that is suited perfectly for her. Lulu will become a full-time family member instead of the handler and family. “When a pup is removed or retires from our K9 program, the handler & their family is given the chance to adopt them and many do. We’ll miss Lulu, but this was the right decision for her,” A CIA official commented.
Lulu’s handler didn’t hesitate at all in choosing to adopt her. Lulu’s future and career as a family dog looks bright. This playful pup will get to live out her days playing fetch and taking over full-time duties as the pet of the house.
Maybe we can all learn something from this story. If your heart just isn’t into something, maybe it’s just not your calling. Get over it and move on to a brighter future waiting for you. Good job Lulu for following your heart.
