TAMPA (FOX 13) -

We've all had an offday (or two) at work, but we all know that if you spend too much time slackingoff and goofing around you won't have a job for long.

And that's why policein Gulfport, Miss., had to let one of their officers go.

That officer happens tobe a dog.

Police say Fred wasgreat at sniffing out contraband, but the K-9 spent too much time being a dog,playing with empty soda cans while on duty.

Now that he's no longerworking for police, Fred has been returned to his original owners at a K-9 trainingacademy.
