These Working Dogs Deserve Some Labor Day Love


While some of us expect our dogs to fetch our slippers/newspaper/remote control as we put up our feet for Labor Day weekend, there are some hard-working dogs who won't be available to do such favors. That's because they are busy doing their actual jobs. Meet a few of the pups working literal dog days in an array of serious careers, from K9s keeping us safe to those who are sniffing out truffles for our dinner. They're who we'll be celebrating this Monday.

This team of K9s in Las Vegas is performing a firearms familiarization drill, which allows working dogs to be able to perform their duties during the chaos of gunfire.
