Suzie Sanchez came over last night. Has she come up yet? Suzie’s great, has these shiny black eyes. She likes Bernie and he likes her – I sniffed that out right from the get-go. But things have been bumpy lately, on account of Dylan McKnight, who was Suzie’s boyfriend – what a loser – and maybe sort of still is. Anyway, forget all that. Suzie’s a reporter for the Valley Tribune and she’s working on a story about military dogs.
“Did you know there are 2025 dogs in the military?” she said. “They track down explosives and bad guys with their sense of smell.” Well, of course. I’d learned the smell of explosives in K-9 school. And tracking bad guys – that’s my everyday gig. I could do this military job! I watched Bernie. “How many casualties?” he said.
“Eleven in combat since 9/11,” Suzie said. “There’s a movement going to get medals for the dogs who serve.”
“I’m for that,” Bernie said.
