Illegal DVD Sniffer Dogs Awarded Medals!

Two black Labradors Lucky and Flo pose for photographer after receiving medals from the domestic trade ministry before they ended a six-month assignment in Putrajaya, Monday, Aug. 20, 2007.

The world's first dogs trained to identify optical discs by the scent of their chemicals, Lucky and Flo were loaned to the Malaysian government in March by the Motion Picture Association, a U.S.-based watchdog.

These pawesome dogs helped find 1.6 million DVDs and other optical discs, three DVD replicating machines and 97 compact disc burners, worth $6 million.

Twenty-six people were arrested during the raids.

Two paws up for these amazing pups!
