No kidding. Bet you end up with either a social dog or a basket case. Wonder if that special therapy pit bull came from this program.

I bet you $10 these dogs bolt if they hear anything words remotely connected to a frat hazing ritual... :lol:

I read that article and thought pretty much the same thing. However; a little history. the first explosives detector dog in the United States to find a functioning IED was part of a doctoral thesis. It was the work of a University of Mississippi student back in the very early 70's. The dog's name was Brandy. So you never know what you might get out of some "college" kids.

*Ahem* As a point of clarification, no matter what Bob thinks, grad students aren't college kids. I was much cooler in my undergrad days. Now all I do in grad school is hang out with old married people, most of whom train dogs. 8)
