Without exception, the teens were all staring at their smartphones. “They’re playing Pokémon Go,” I replied. The lady didn’t comment, but her facial expression was a mix of disconcert and skepticism.

    This police dog was fired from his job for an adorable reason

    This is Gavel, a German Shepherd who was recruited as a puppy to train as a police dog - but ended up getting the sack. Unfortunately, Gavel was found to be not up to the task. As the police put it, he "did not display the necessary aptitude for a life on the front line." The problem was, Gavel was too sociable. He loved meeting strangers, and would much rather play with someone than help arrest them. And so, after months of training, his career in law enforcement was over.
