Taking Stock – It’s a dog’s life for Customs’ new chums.

It’s official. Customs & Excise has gone barking mad. Keen to sniff out the opportunity of discovering wads of cash used in illicit transactions, Customs has brought in two ‘currency dogs’ who have a nose for money. Sandy, a two-year-old labrador and Bodie, a three-year-old cocker spaniel, can smell the paper and ink of bank notes and are now learning the sites and sounds of Britain as they travel across the country in search of dosh. TS assumes that the new discoveries will take the lead in tracking down unpaid taxes.
