Grime dogs : Morse & Lewis

BBC photo

If it weren't for the gruesome work they have to do, the story of Eddie and Keela, the Springer Spaniels trained to sniff out buried human remains, would be totally enchanting.

Enchanting partly because of their doggy charm; patly because of ground-breaking training techniques developed by their handler, Martin Grime; and partly, perhaps, because he seems to have a sense of humour. This from the BBC's online magazine item:

Both [Eddie and Keela] live with Mr Grime and have a normal life outside of work.
He is currently training two new dogs, Morse and Lewis.
