Sniffer dog targets Queen Elizabeth
Queen Elizabeth was targeted by a sniffer dog in London on Thursday (12.11.15).
Ruby, the detection dog has been responsible for uncovering millions in illegal cash while working Border Force at London’s Heathrow Airport but was left disappointed when meeting the queen at UK Government’s Home Office as she rarely carries cash.
Ruby’s handler David Bellingham explained: “She always goes for handbags because she knows that people carry money there, but she didn’t indicate this time. If she had found a large amount of cash she would have sat down with her nose pointing at the source. Ruby would normally be working at this time of day so I could feel her wanting to pull towards the queen.”
The monarch also made a speech to staff in which she praised their public service.
She said: “I know that being a member of the Civil Service, and indeed being involved in public service of any sort, is not always an easy task. Even the best public servants cannot hope to be popular with everyone all the time; and – as in every walk of life – there is often room for improvement and finding fresh ways of doing things.”
