CHEYENNE, WYOMING - The Governor's Office has released a statement that a specially trained Basset Hound Corp is being assembled in Wyoming.
The Bassett Hounds which are friendly, docile dogs, will be used to patrol the 8 foot fence along the border between Wyoming and Colorado, sniffing out potential pot invaders. At this time fifty dogs are being trained at a dog academy at an undisclosed location.
A spokesman for the Governor's Office stated, "We did not choose Doberman Pinchers or German Shepherds because we do not want to be compared to hostile East German Border Patrols during the Cold War. We thought Basset Hounds would be ideal as they can be easily trained for detecting scents, but are also non-threatening. They will be officially known as the W.B.H.C.D.C. - The Wyoming Bassett Hound Cannabis Detection Corp., but we will use B.H.C. for short."
