There’s nothing like finally graduating. After years of studying, training for your chosen profession and putting all you have into it, you are finally able to hear your name, walk up to the podium and receive your diploma. Graduation season is full of new hopefuls ready to make their mark in the world.
And some of those hopefuls are furry with four paws.
Eight narcotic detection K-9 teams graduated on July 8 from the Connecticut State Police Canine Unit’s 181st Narcotic Detection Dog class, Connecticut State Police wrote in a Facebook post. The training, which lasted 11 weeks, involved learning how to detect narcotics such as heroin and Fentanyl.
The graduating Labradors, all from Guiding Eyes for the Blind in New York, were clearly ecstatic to be graduating. (We assume they threw their graduation caps in the air and had a huge party afterward.)
Don’t know about you, but we needed a little pick-me-up.

The class graduated K9 teams from the Connecticut State Police, Colchester, Hartford, Enfield and Stafford Police Departments.
