Here’s another story from the odd doggie jobs file. Riley the Weimaraner goes to work at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to train his sniffing skills. What’s Riley searching for? Very specific bugs and pests that can damage art, textiles, and books in the museum’s collection.
Riley is just a pup, but his mom, Nickie Luongo, who is the director of protective services at the museum, has high hopes that Riley will be the first of a long line of sniffer dogs keeping artwork safe from harm.
