Fidos fetch funds

It all started with Endal, a ten-year-old Labrador Retriever assistance dog who took the liberty to nab his frustrated wheelchair-bound owner's card, money and receipt with his mouth -- a first for contributive canines. A charity that trains assistance dogs, Canine Partners, was quite inspired and has added an ATM regimen that teaches the helpful hounds to insert and remove cards, retrieve cash and receipts, and hand them to the owner who is responsible for entering their PIN number.

Don't try this with a beagle, it will spend the money on cigarettes :)

Well if they can deposit the card into the slot as well as taking them out then why can they not push the envelope into another slot to deposit money?
