I really like school; it’s something I look forward to.
I also like dogs — I would choose dogs over cats any day.
But mix school with dogs? That’s not OK with me.
Every so often, administrators conduct a drug dog search to bust all of the kids with drugs. They bring in the drug dogs and have to search each each classroom.
While the dogs are searching, the students leave their classrooms so the dogs can do their work.
When the dog sniffs out a backpack and detects a substance, the officers search the backpack for the drug. This involves turning the entire bag out and dumping all of the contents of the bag on the floor.
So, when the student returns to class, all of his or her belongings are strewn across the floor — do these dogs get worked up about Advil? I feel a high level of annoyance when this happens to me, because I hate having to repack my disheveled backpack.
