The day dawned cool and bright. The sky appeared blank, with nary a cloud in sight. A perfect day for an in-city patrol. The humans took him from his kennel just after the sun began to rise. His morning meal - a measured amount of food and water - were deposited into the two large metal bowls located near the entrance. He ate at a moderate pace. Eating too fast at his size could cause a number of medical conditions, and Khan did not desire to waste time convalescing. After consuming the entire bowl, he drank the entire bowl. It was, just as he predicted, just enough to wash down his meal. A leash was clipped to the collar he wore while in the facility. Khan followed them down the hall, his long, leisurely stride almost forcing them to jog just to keep him from moving ahead. It had been far too long - a solid week - since he had been sent out on patrol.
When they arrived at the exit, the collar was removed and put on a labelled hook beside the door. He would return through this same door later in the day, at which time the same collar and leash would be put back on. He waited a few seconds for his handler to open the door but they didn't so much as move to do it. He glanced up at her, tilting his head to one side ever so slightly as if to ask her why not. The answer came moments later. The click of nails on the polished tile made his head turn. Another dog was coming down the hall. Black and white coat, appearing to be of similar breeding to him. His sea-green eyes narrowed. He had received training for both solo and partnered patrols, just as every Lux did during the training program. However, he had never actually been partnered up before.
