Colonel

colonel_with_nametag.jpgHello, my name is Colonel. I work for the CIA as an Explosive Detection K-9. When I was younger I belonged to a program called The Seeing Eye Inc., where I learned to help the visually impaired. Well, after a while I decided that wasn't for me. I went to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives where I met Officer Robin. Together we trained for 10 weeks so that we could learn how to detect explosives. After Officer Robin got the hang of things we formed a wonderful team. My nose is so good that I can detect over 19,000 different scents! Now our job is to protect property and people both here in the United States and overseas.

When I am not working, I am a typical dog. I love to play in my yard, go for walks, and even enjoy an occasional nap. Oh yeah, I love to swim too! I guess that's what us black labs do best. I am so glad that I met Officer Robin. We have a lot of fun together.
