  • Knesset’s oldest guard dog retires

    August 18, 2011 | 10:38 am

    The Knesset’s oldest guard dog has retired.

    Kai, a 7-year-old Labrador retriever, was forced to leave his position after failing to pass a fitness test, Ynet reported.

    The dog had participated in a variety of security missions, including sniffing for bombs. He has lived in the Knesset Guard’s kennel since he was a puppy, according to Ynet.

    Two of the dog’s young offspring are slated to replace him. Kai will receive a certificate of merit at a good-bye party in his honor.

    The Knesset found the dog a home with a family in Rehovot.
