Working Dogs

Via Boing Boing.

And on a more serious note, what happens when a dog owner doesn't let the dog do what it was bred to do -- but with a happier outcome:

Luckily a hog hunter offered to train her to hunt wild boar, the job that was ingrained in her genetic code, to see if a job could make a difference. Despite being a vegetarian hipster chick that wanted nothing to do with hunting, I drove Sadie out to the country and left her with the hog dogger for a month. It made an incredible difference.
