We took Jax to the vet today for his micro-chipping. Before coming home we decided to take him socializing for a bit. First we took him to the police dept. He liked everybody he met. Then we took him into the police capt.'s office. Playing around, I pointed to the capt. and told Jax "sic the booger!". Jax lunged for the captain, teeth barred. WARNING! Don't ever do this with a protective GSD. Thankfully, DH had a tight hold on his leash. I learned my lesson and will never again play around like that. After the PD we took him to the sheriff's office/jail. Walked Jax around in the SO, letting him meet the jailers and the dispatchers. Then we took him into a room called the troop room. It's where the officers go to do their paperwork. Along the wall of the troop room are wooden boxes that look like the mailboxes you'd see at the post office. These boxes have each covered slot stuffed with the smell of various drugs. Here's the amazing part. As soon as we walked in the troop room, Jax headed for those boxes and zeroed in one the ones that have had drugs in them! He checked every single row of boxes. DH says it's because other dogs (K9s) have been around the boxes, but I thought it was pretty amazing that he zeroed in on the correct boxes. We are having so much fun with this puppy! I just wanted to share.
