Okay, come on.

[Sirens Wailing In Distance]

[Siren Continues]

Harding's here.

[Siren Stops]

- [Police Radio Chatter]

- You ready, Ace? Let's go, buddy.

- All right. I'll take this side.

You work that side.

- Okay.

Okay, buddy, here we go.

What do you got, buddy? What do you got?

Let's go, Sasha. Come on.

Find him, Sasha. Find him.

Search, buddy. Search. Search.

- [Barking]

- Good boy. Good boy. Seek, buddy. Seek.

Seek, buddy. Come on. Seek.

That dog of yours a K-9

or a pinwheel, Dan?

It might look funny to you,

but as soon as he locks on...


Go get him! Go get him!


Help me! Help me, please!

- Ohh! Let go!

- Good boy!

Let go! Help!

Help me!

Get him off of me!

Help me! Ow!

Yeah. Pinwheel, huh?

[Man Shouting, Yelping]

Come here, boy. Come on.

Ohh! Help me!

Get him off of me!

Ohh! Ohh!

- [Shouting, Sputtering Continue]

- Good boy.

That's a good boy.

Come on. Come on.

[TV Announcer] Welcome back

to Good Day Everett with Jimmy Bixler.

- [Dan] Are you ready, Jimmy?

- Bring it on.!

- Go get him!

- Whoa! Oh!

- [Dan] Good boy.

- There he is.

Okay. Off. Off.

- [Growling]

- Okay.

- You can get up now.

- Wow. If pooch had his way with me...

I would've ended up at Miller Memorial

in Room 402 and 403.

Actually, Ace would never have crossed that line.

In fact, no police dog ever would.

- That's good to know.

- Give him a treat.

Okay. There you go, Ace.

- There you go. That's better than my arm.

- [Studio Audience Laughs]

We like to say that we train 'em

just to restrain 'em.


Well, that's good to know.

Now, I understand

that Ace's sense of smell...

- is 40,000 times sharper than ours.

- That's correct.

One whiff of your hand, and he could track you

down in your seat anywhere in Safeco Field.

- Really. I can't even find my car after a game.

- [Audience Laughs]

Now, uh, before the show,

you did mention...

that you're having trouble

tracking down at least one criminal...

who strikes while people

are on vacation...

a robber with a colorful nickname.

Yeah, that's correct, Jimmy. Right now,

we have a prowler working in our county...

that so far has eluded

all of our track downs.

We've kind of dubbed him

"Goliath" because...

Well, he's built, um...

- Just like me.

- [Laughter]

Just kidding, Ace. No, no.

I'm more like David. Goliath is the big one.

All right. Well,

we'll be back in a second.

When we do, we'll have

an interview with Ace.

We'll ask him how he got promoted

from K-7 to K-8 and finally to K-9.


Ace, good boy.

[Audience Applause Fades Out]

Wow. Looks fabuloso.

Thank Mrs. Brody.

- Who?

- My home-ec teacher.

- Oh, right.

- You're supposed to grade me.

Like, did I burn it or anything dumb?

Mmm. Hmm.

I'm giving you... a D-plus.

- Wha...

- For "Delicious-plus."



Is Dad around?

It's okay. I mean, only one parent

has to sign the grade sheet, so...

Other side. Other side.

- Dad.

- I'll be right in, honey.


Don't bother. Dinner's over and stuff.

Hey. Hey.

That's a distraction, okay?

It's roasted chicken with garlic

and black fig reduction a la Julia actually.

- What?

- Nothing.

- [Murmurs]

- [Sighs]

- Dad.

- Mm-hmm?

Can I handle Ace

at the K-9 competition this year?

Oh, that's not

a very good idea, honey.

- I even read those boring training manuals.

- You're 13 years old, okay?

Fourteen in 29 days. Please, Dad.

Honey, Ace needs to feel really comfortable

when he's in a competition.

- Why can't you just trust me for once?

- It's not a matter of trust.
