Bomb-sniffing dog moves to local retirement home

It looks like a typical retirement party: friends and colleagues gather to toast their departing peer, while enjoying snacks and hearing speeches. But Stryker, the retiree and guest of honor, isn’t a Baby Boomer; he is turning nine years old this spring and he’s a Labrador dog.

As reported by The Seattle Times, Stryker retired last week after seven years working for airplane manufacturer Boeing, where he sniffed out suspected bombs, luggage, and abandoned bags.
