If you ever needed proof that even the best-trained dogs get distracted, here it is. Police were chasing an armed robber and had a scent-detecting dog with them. Well…he got distracted by another scent, the scent of raw meat in a homeless man’s underwear, which said homeless man had just stolen from a nearby store. They lost the robber, but busted Edward Brown for having $68 worth of meat shoved down his pants.
Incidentally, I love the phrasing “The dog must have smelled a tasty dinner in his pants.” Eek.
