Pub's mascot is ace at grabbing gratuities

(NBC) - If you ever stop by Harley's Pub in Idaho City, Idaho be careful about leaving cash on the table.

One of the workers has a real nose for money, but can't tell a dollar bill from a 20...because he's a dog.

It's hard to tell whether Dusty, the Border Collie barkeep, is more excited about the tips or the treat, that come after he delivers each deposit to the bartender.

It's a process that has kept patrons and pourers happy for 10 years.

It should be noted all that tip-toting isn't entirely profitable for bar owner Cathy Staneart.

"I go through anywhere from two to two and a half cases of bones a month," she chuckles.

Dusty actually belongs to the Harley's former owner Lisa Rappleye, who now agrees to work part time at the bar just so Dusty can have his old job back.
