A Scene To Behold

The dog squeezed his ears as he put his nose to the ground. This was something Smith had never seen his dog do before, not really like that. They must have been stumbling into something huge! He was as still as a statue, pressing his big paws into the soft soil.

What Kyle Saw

He felt compelled to see that his dog had been so focused on the tree, but he knew that it was going to be an ordeal. As his palms became clammy, he could feel his pulse race. If he hadn’t seen it with his own eyes, he wouldn’t have believed what he’d been stumbled upon.

Something Was Wrong

It was like hiking every other day with Kyle before realizing that something wasn’t right with him. He was acting strange; he was nervous, sniffing around with intent, maybe it was old reflexes from his days as a service animal?

Kyle Wasn’t Done Yet

Something was clearly wrong either way. Before the Smiths, Kyle had been to 2 other families. The last two lasted only a short while because, as a police dog, he had not yet resigned and still had to do more crime-fighting. Kyle wasn’t done with his detective work, for sure.

Gentle Soul

With all Kyle’s police experience, his strengths were in data collection. He was a true detective. But when it came to needing to be violent, it just wasn’t in his character. He would still be protecting his new family from any officers he was with, and now, if he wanted to.

A New Partner

After he had his new partner, Officer John, Kyle’s training picked up, and he quickly learned to be more physical when the situation required it. He would also make use of his life to protect his new partner. There is no doubt that he was definitely pushed to his very best by his new partner.

A Great Duo

Service dogs would usually patrol with multiple officers, but Kyle wouldn’t just respond to Officer John. Both created a great team and shared a unique relationship. John took Kyle, so the two were constantly on duty.

Parting Ways

When Kyle’s time on the force came to an end, John wanted to keep him, but he could not take care of him when he went on duty. He wanted to do what was best for that dog, so he allowed him to be adopted by the Smiths. Officer John, however, certainly felt sad to be away with his partner.

Every Dog’s Dream

By taking a stroll, Kyle and the Smith family build a bond. They ended up doing much more exercise than they used to. They went for a regular walk in the hills until one day. Their house had a large forest in the countryside which surrounded it.

An Unexpected Discovery

It was a great benefit for Kyle that any ordinary dog would run rampant in the woods chasing after all kinds of animals. But there was something else that Kyle had discovered. What was it that Kyle found? We’re about to find out, no matter how big it might be!

A Drastic Change

As usual, the day began, and they started to walk, Kyle leading them. They walked the way they always had; then Kyle demanded a new route. The family knew then that their dog was acting really strange.

Acting Odd

Kyle had never been out of the town for so long before. He enjoyed his daily walks with his new family in the woods, but today they had something else they didn’t expect. It was like a switch that was turned, and Kyle as a whole changed completely!

Strange Behavior

Kyle started acting odd a while later. He quietly stopped to eat. However, he was happy on the journey, with his tail lurking in the woods. They could see that this is how he must have been when he was still in service.

Old Habits

He started burying his nose in the dirt, following a trail only recognizable for him. The old reflexes of his police days began. The family tried to remind him of the route, but the fragrance was perhaps too much to catch his attention.

Finding The Scent

It was not unusual for a dog to sniff the ground on walks sometimes. Kyle often noticed all kinds of wildlife when they walked. He once also saw somebody’s old clothes. Kyle would search for it and find it if something was to be concealed from this secret trail.

The Scent Made Him Nervously

That said, the fragrance that he discovered this time seemed to make him nervous. Now that they’d been invested, they had to keep going. Everything that Kyle had discovered was definitely serious as it brought him back to his old ways.

Above Them

The family felt that Kyle was odd in his behavior; maybe something was hiding in the trees above them? Perhaps a small animal? Maybe their dog has been taunted, knowing that he couldn’t catch them. But everything they saw when they looked up was twisted branches, which would have leaves in the spring.

It Made Everyone Anxiously

Kyle had discovered up to now something unknown to them. And what did he find? What did he find? The family also began to worry about what they were all concerned about. It was definitely something serious with the way Kyle was behaving.

What Is It?

Smith called him again, but it was useless. Kyle lied down, frozen. So he called John, Kyle’s former partner, and Smith did not know what to do. John explained that Kyle would know what to do if he took up a smell out of the ordinary or posed a risk.

Approaching The Tree

He was sure that Kyle would be able to cope with how Officer John responded while he was trained in such scenarios. Smith was advised to look at the tree to make sure it wasn’t dangerous. “Are they drugs?” Smith thought. No, what he was about to learn was even worse.

Not Drugs

As Smith approached the tree, he noted that the bark was loose. Kyle began barking loudly. Feeling inspired, Smith braced himself and peeled it back, exposing the hollow inside the oak. Suddenly, after peering into the darkness, he focused his eyes and jumped up. It wasn’t drugs, though.

Waiting For The Next Move

Kyle was on high alert as he was awaiting any follow-up orders when they realized that they were not dealing with drugs. Both Smith and Kyle were unaware of what they were supposed to do next, but that doesn’t mean they would have to move out of the area immediately.

Calling Backup

For a moment, Smith took his phone out without any hesitation and called the only person he thought he could report it to and dialed John’s number shakily. With his voice trembling, he explained precisely what Kyle had found in the old oak. Even before they were all present, John hurried to gather forensic experts, profoundly disturbed and utterly unbelieving.

They Were In Disbelief

It was clear from how Smith spoke to John on the phone that Kyle was dealing with something he hadn’t dealt with before, that Smith knew he had to rush to the scene as soon as possible to help them immediately.

On The Road

For John, the journey down to Kyle’s new home was excruciating and took far longer than he realized. After two hours on the road, they were still driving. John was so busy with work that he didn’t see Kyle after the Smiths adopted him. He felt a sting of regret for his old friend when they finally came.

Reaching The Area

He felt a bit of regret for his old friend when they eventually came. He felt sad that he remembered their times as a duo and their numerous missions together. No matter what he felt, he was sure he was happy to see his old friend once again.

Tearful Reunion

After he sees the familiar sight of cruisers, Kyle cannot contain his enthusiasm. He’s heading for John for a reunion that will lead you to tears. But John soon made his way to the tree with a critical issue to deal with. He’s pulling back the bark of a tree.

The Heinous Sight

As he is being encouraged by Kyle with his barking, his heart races. His eyes pop as the heinous sight that Smith had described to him is confirmed. As he was horrified, he could not believe what he was looking at! What could they possibly have seen?

A Closer Look

Kyle led them to a human skeleton stashed inside the tree. However, it was so well packed in the tree that it must be carefully cut down to determine what it was about. Surely, they were surprised by what Kyle had found out.

Back To His Usual Self

Smith was surprised by how vibrant Kyle was as they continued their work. It was as if he had returned to his normal self. How much Kyle loved John was noted by Smith. But as Kyle watched, new information was falling into place.

Out Of His Depth

After he found the remnants in the hollow oak, he felt his element out of it. He began dialing to inform his police chief so that more reinforcements could be sent out. But just before he could catch the station, someone stopped him.

Where The Skeleton Came From

He was stopped before he could make the call by the forensic experts he had brought with him. And they’ve been doing a good thing. They unpacked the tools and began to inspect the skeleton to figure out where the skeleton came from.

Investigation

Forensic investigators usually need at least one week to conclude with their remains and where or from what they were found. They had stopped John from calling because they found that no further investigation would be necessary in this case. They already had everything they wanted.

False Alarm

They saw a life-size human skeleton, but it was also a fake one. Somebody had planted it in tree bark as a scare or joke for Halloween and had forgotten about it. They laugh in relief, but in a situation like this, why Kyle would warn them in a situation like this is what they couldn’t understand.

A Sudden Realization

They knew that Kyle’s sense of smell was taught not to threaten objects, and therefore they were confused as to why he acted as such. But then, they realized something, that’s when all of a sudden it clicked!

An Orchestrated Crime Scene

Smith was the first who put two and two together. Kyle, he remembered, had just wanted to see John. There were signs of loneliness in his recent actions, and his best friend and former partner were absent. He knew that after his police actions, John was going to run.

Why Kyle Did It

Maybe that’s why he did it. Was that orchestrated? Kyle has been staring at John ever since he got here. It was obvious that Kyle missed John so much. It was like everything was done to get John’s attention and make him pay a visit.

Realization

His former partner, who was always enthusiastically jumping around, licked his hands and nuzzled his thighs. Then it dawned on him that this may never have been about the skeleton. John remembered that there was only one quick and foolproof way of getting his attention in all their years of working together.

Old Times

John certainly felt happy that his former partner had gone to such lengths to meet him again. It is also certain that they were delighted to have worked one more time on a case, just as they did back then.

Clever Dog

Kyle had to know that John didn’t have an easier way to rush toward him… Just as he was taught to do, all he had to do was sit and bark when he spotted something. John could not help but laugh out loud when it started to make sense.

A Happy Reunion

John bent down, rubbed Kyle’s cheek, and looked deeply into his dark eyes. It was obvious that they had missed each other so much, and they were delighted that they had finally seen each other again, and they were very grateful for that.

Kyle’s signal was John’s secret message, the partner he had so missed. He missed him so deeply that he needed to find out how he could see him. Although Kyle did not see John since he moved to his new home, he still recalls working and remaining loyal.

Remembering His Old Pal

The times and the times spent with Officer John have definitely missed Kyle. Irrespective of how long she did not see each other, Kyle certainly did not forget all she learned with Officer John, which eventually helped her return again!

Still looking into Kyle’s eyes, John was unbelievably moved by his display of unwavering loyalty and love. He decided to stay on stage for a little longer to have a good time with his former partner. He ensured that he would make their time as memorable as possible together.

John could see how happy Kyle was, walking alone in the woods. And before he left, John made a promise; he would visit Kyle as often as he could, to make sure that his old fellow was not lonely.

No doubt about Kyle being thrilled at the time, with John around. The poor dog sought his old boyfriend for a while, so he was ecstatic and excited when his old partner was there.

No matter how happy the pair was, the day still has to end at some point. While it’s sad, they both had to say goodbye to each other again. But unlike before, they have a promise that each time they would see each other.

A Look Before Leaving

John looked back, chuckling heartily. He looked up at Kyle, waving his tail with a goofy grin, still leaping up and down with joy. He felt a strange heartbreak and guilt pain but knew that he made the best choice to let Smiths take Kyle.

In Good Hands

He thought, petting Kyle and laughing with Smith by his side, along with the ruckus he caused, “What a clever old pup!” This story shows how little credit we give to dogs. However, sometimes a dog is clever enough to save an entire family.
