“He probably figures he’s covering his trail by typing up loose ends. Truth is, he’s doing the exact opposite. Plus, he doesn’t know is he’s messing with the wrong guy. I don’t give up or let up. I intend to catch this miscreant! No question about that! We’ll get him.”

“What makes you so sure?”

“I’m good at what I do.”

“Good to know.”

“Since we don’t have a photo of this clown, I can’t run him but I did run a search on stolen vehicles matching the description of the one I saw leaving your friend’s place. Out-of-province license plates take longer to match, but we will”

The pups were curled up next to each other which had both owners smiling. “Seems like they’ve become friends.”

“Yeah. Jersey likes to play nice.”

“She responds well; I take it you have had her trained?”

“Yeah, I thought it was important. I’ve seen too many dogs that aren’t and it causes no end of trouble mostly for others. I don’t like to see that and I certainly didn’t want a pup like that.”

“Loki was trained by friends in the canine unit. I wanted him to have the edge should he or I require it. He’s a fabulous dog and partner and a great judge of character. He pretty much goes where I go.”

“That has got to be a bonus in your line of work.”

“More often than not. I couldn’t have a dog in London since my flat was too small, it didn’t seem fair to lock one up for eight hours or longer but having this place,” he looked around, “makes it possible. We’ve been together for two and a half years now. I can’t remember a time without him. He’s wormed his way into my heart and life and I haven’t regretted it, for an instant. Not to mention, he’s saved my ass on a couple of occasions.”

“So he’s more than just a pet. He’s an invaluable asset partner friend and family member! Dependable and wise.”

“Yeah, he sure is.”
