Pupdate: Doggo makes it clear it doesn’t want to be an explosive detection K9 for the CIA

“All dogs, just like most human students, have good days and bad days when learning something new,” the CIA wrote on its blog.

CIA adds: “The same is true during our puppy classes. A pup might begin acting lazy, guessing where the odors are, or just showing a general disregard for whatever is being taught at the moment. Usually it lasts for a day, maybe two.”

This is Lulu the black Lab.

Lulu the black Lab was tapped for the CIA’s 2017 K9 unit some weeks ago. The objective of the training included the valiant, but depressing job of sniffing out explosives in airports, government buildings, and sometimes, dangerous locations.

Once she would start training, the CIA wanted her to finish, becoming “the first line of defense against explosive threats.”

On Wednesday, it looked like things weren’t working out for Lulu.

The CIA tweeted a series of photos of her at work, looking ever so tired and unamused of what’s in store for her.

The CIA added, “Our trainers’ top concern is physical & mental well-being of K9s. They made difficult decision & did what’s best for Lulu: stop her training.”

What happens to Lulu? Well, the best retirement of her life.

We’ll miss you, Lulu. Have a happy doggy life!
