Dogs are the guardians of our souls - they bring us everlasting joy and fluffiness and we do not deserve their greatness.
And dogs are getting even cleverer too, with little Alfie being a prime example.
This smart detector dog helps Revenue by sniffing out contraband items, and just last week 31,000 cigarettes, branded ‘Kent’, ‘Marlboro’, ‘Vogue Slims’ and ‘Lucky Strike’, and 107 litres of wine were discovered by Alfie in concealments throughout the vehicle.
The van at Rosslare Harbour transporting the goods was also seized, and the retail value of the wine is €1,490, representing a potential loss to the Exchequer of €735.
A Romanian man was arrested at the scene and remanded to a special sitting of Gorey District Court and investigations are ongoing.
Who's a good boy?
