Customs Catastrophe!

My husband and myself recently had a short break in Vanuatu. As we were only there for four days, we placed our dirty clothes in a garbage bag and left it in the corner of the room. As the room was serviced daily, the staff often left the door open whilst they went about their business. The resort we were staying at had a bit of a problem with feral cats and one had got into our room and peed on our bag of dirty clothes. Gross! We only noticed this the night before we were ready to leave so we did not have time to wash anything. Well, when we got back to Brisbane airport and proceeded to the baggage collection area, a dog handler was running his dog over the lugggage. Well, you can imagine to our utter horror what happened next! The beagle wouldn't leave our luggage alone and sniffed and sniffed around it frantically trying to get into it. The dog handler tried to pull him off the bag but he wouldn't leave it alone. So of course, as expected, we were asked to open our luggage in front of about a hundred people and can you imagine the embarrassment when the stench of cat's piss hit the air? My husband and I very quickly slunk away and have hated cats ever since!!!
