Sniff Sniff, Scratch Scratch?!!!

Just an update.
I went and talked to the local police about the possibility of them
helping me out with their dog. They said they'd be glad to do it, but
they let me know that their dog is an "active" dog, and when it finds a
scent it starts clawing at the area. Some dogs are trained to be
"passive" when they find a "hit". They also said that it'd probably
find many different spots in the vehicle where ashes might have fallen,
places might have been rubbed with fingers that had residue on them,
etc.
The way I see it the interior of my brand new looking vehicle might end
up in shreds! I think I'll pass.

Re: Sniff Sniff, Scratch Scratch?!!!

Just some thoughts to mull over.....

Most departments have more than one dog, and not all are trained the
same way. Also, you might consider a nearby department... or if there
is a certified K9 training facility close by, you might contact them
and offer up your car for training purposes (providing they don't
train the clawing technique), and get a letter from them that your car
was used for training by x number of dogs, and this is the result.

If you have a question about the vehicle, better to know and have some
documentation than to get pulled over, and, for whatever reason have
the car checked by a K9 which alerts on the vehicle. That could lead
to impoundment and even confiscation. Also, something few people know,
is that when the vehicle is hauled in, they can take it all apart
looking for something which isn't there, and they DO NOT have to put
it back together, or pay to have it put back together. If you want it
back, it's not unusual to find it all there... in pieces.... tossed
inside, or, if the owner is really lucky, in boxes. Many of the
vehicles which are auctioned off are in that condition. Yes, you can
save a bundle on a Ferrari or a yacht, but, it may cost a bundle to
put it back right.

Still, the choice is yours.
