At the Writers Police Academy you never knew what was going to happen next.  A class with Joy and her handler was a welcome surprise addition to our day. 

Joy is a gorgeous, well-trained police dog.  She loves to search for drugs and criminals.  As an extra treat, we got to observe Joy in action.  According to her handler, Joy loves her job.

Unlike us mere mortals, Joy's day is flipped around.  So when she is at work it's PLAY TIME.  And when she's home, it's downtime.  This keeps her excited to get up and go to work. 

What a novel idea (no pun intended).


  1. I guess if I got to have fun at work and no fun at home, I'd want to go to work. Maybe. Hmmm...maybe not. The concept is just too weird for me :)

  2. I'm coming back as a cat or dog in my next life (a housepet that is!)
