This really is the dog's bollocks....or not as the case may be as they will now be resplendent with nether garments too???
"smugglers could get jittery when they see these uniformed dogs around"
Fantastic flashback scenarios ensue.
And apparently they "can't do multi-tasking jobs". Obviously what you get for using dogs instead of bitches.

Bombay Customs Dogs Will Now Be Uniformed
Shahid Raza Burney, Arab News BOMBAY, 29 August 2006 - For the first time in the history of India, dogs will have the honor of adhore uniforms and be given ranks. Madan, Maya, Pinky and Sony, the four dogs in the investigative wing of the Bombay customs, will get uniforms and ranks and will patrol around the two Bombay airports in brand new uniform, a move to make them look distinct at night.
G. Ravindranath, the Joint Commissioner of Central Excise and Customs confirmed that he had sent a proposal to make uniforms as allot ranks to the dogs and said that the uniform could be a jacket with gold colored letter specifying Customs.This Ravindranath said would not only give the dogs a distinct identity, but would also act as a deterrent for the passengers dealing with drugs and smugglers could get jittery when they see these uniformed dogs around.
These four Customs dogs, Ravindranath said are handled by officials of the ranks of sub-inspectors and are on duty in two twelve hours shift and are trained to catch peddles dealing with drugs like hashish and cocaine, but can't do multi-tasking jobs. In the last one year, these dogs have helped the Customs officials to detect 19 cases of drug pedaling, Ravindranath said.
