That’s the second smallest ending stocks in the last 20-years.
An arriving passenger was ‘sniffed’ out by a very special officer at Newark Liberty International Airport. Meet K-9 Kody. Kody sniffed luggage originating from Kosovo and alerted her handlers that something suspicious was inside. The arriving passenger claimed the suitcase and declared that he had “homemade sausages” 88-pounds of them in the suitcase. Pork is prohibited from Kosovo. The passenger was released without a penalty.
And another great dog! Meet Bindi. She was named the Farm Dog of the Year by the American Farm Bureau Federation at its virtual convention this week. She’s a five-year-old Australian shepherd who lives in New York. Her owner says Bindi helps move animals around on the farm and she’s also very protective.
