>> The CIA's most recent firing isn't what or who you would expect. She's furry, walks on four legs, and according to the agency, enjoys sniffing out squirrels. Lulu is a black Labrador pup that just didn't have what it takes to be a CIA bomb sniffer. So it was only natural for Lulu and the CIA to go their separate ways.
The CIA announced on Wednesday their tough decision to let the 18 month old dog go. The reason, Lulu just wasn't interested in detecting explosives. The CIA said they even tried motivating her with food and play. But she was clearly no longer enjoying herself. Lulu was being trained for the Fairfax County Police Department in Virginia for the CIA's explosive detection canine program.
The story does have a happy ending. Lulu was adopted by her handler and is now adjusting to life as a typical domestic dog. Running around in her new backyard, sniffing out squirrels, and playing with her new owners' kids.
