A C.I.A Bomb Sniffing Dog Was Fired Because She Didn't Want to Sniff Bombs Anymore
But don't worry! Lulu's story has a happy ending.

Work is hard sometimes. You've got to deal with spreadsheets, meetings, email jargon, colleagues, and water cooler talk. But for Lulu, a C.I.A trainee K9 dog, her disinterest in her job got her fired.

According to a series of "Pupdates" on the C.I.A's website, Lulu the black Labrador was "dropped" from the K9 program after she showed signs that she wasn't interested in detecting explosive odors.

"Lulu was no longer interested in searching for explosives," the blog wrote. "Even when they [the trainers] could motivate her with food and play to search, she was clearly not enjoying herself any longer."

Luckily for Lulu, her handler's family has decided to adopt her, so she'll be able to live out her days as a regular dog, rather than a working bomb sniffing dog.

The internet loves you, Lulu.
