    Scooby Doo would say “RUT ROH,” but Congressman Bob Brady is foaming at the mouth that the three TSA dogs assigned to Philadelphia International Airport failed their explosive-sniffing test not once, but twice.

    Brady: Dogs are great, dogs do a great job they are as accurate as they can be we have them at the capital and it’s not their fault. They need to be trained for these new devices that are coming out the TSA fell on their face on this one, luckily nothing happened luckily it’s caught.

    The congressman says travelers shouldn’t be worried, because there are nine Philadelphia Police dogs that have all passed their tests working at the airport. The Congressman has written a letter to the TSA urging them to immediately replace the dogs with certified K9’s. The TSA did not respond to calls about the story.
