And The Oscar Goes To…

American crime fighters come in all shapes and sizes. Of course I’m going to highlight heroes wearing suits, in this case black labrador suits.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Two American sniffer dogs who found millions of pirated DVDs while on loan to Malaysian authorities will receive medals of honor when their six-month assignment ends next week, an official said Thursday.

Black Labradors Lucky and Flo will be celebrated at an awards ceremony Monday before they return home to New York, said Nor Hayati Yahaya, the Motion Picture Association’s manager for Malaysia.

Lucky and Flo _ on loan from the U.S.-based association _ have helped uncover pirated DVDs and equipment worth $6 million since they came to Malaysia in March, Nor Hayati said. The cases led to 26 arrests.

She said that the two female dogs seized 2 million of the 2.7 million discs seized this year.

After successful raids, it was rumored that Lucky would light up a miniature cigarette while Flo would bark, “Kiss My Grits!” at the counterfeiters.
