“Here’s a job I didn’t know about,” Spence says. “Some dogs, including this chocolate lab named CJ – many thanks, Linda Lombardi of the AP – work as conservation detectors. CJ’s based in Gig Harbor, Washington, but he’s worked all around the world.”
“Doing what?” says Admin. “I don’t get it.”
“For example,” Spence says, “CJ was trained to sniff out the indigo snake, found only in the deep South. It’s suffering from habitat loss so CJ helped establish its current range. CJ can find the indigo snake’s scent when it’s down deep in the tortoise burrows it holes up in. CJ has also worked on maned wolves in Brazil, bobcats and bats in New Mexico, and spider monkeys in Nicaragua.”
“Sounds like something a certain someone might be good at,” says Admin.
Snakes? Is that what this is about? I’ve dealt with snakes more than once. That time down on the border! Is that in To Fetch A Thief? I don’t even want to think about it.
Welcome Dougal, Indy.
