Isn't this just the coolest? Kuwaiti police women in the K-9 unit? Awesome! You go, girls!
I talked recently with a friend in Customs at the airport. He told us his feelings on dogs and how he had turned down a higher-paying opportunity to work with a sniffer dog. He says he is afraid of dogs and the main problem with the job is that officers are asked to bring the dogs home (as you have to really form a trust relationship). He said that the majority of the Kuwaiti customs officers declined K-9 jobs (even with higher pay and training in Europe).
So... to see WOMEN in HEJAB in a K-9 unit is a major accomplishment. I truely applaud you, ladies. To boldy go where many of your brothers refuse. My compliments!
To all those who say "women are the weaker sex" - I say IN YOUR FACE!
