The dog Who Uncovered a Theft Without Barking 🕵️♂️🏡
Can you believe it? A dog that uncovers a theft without barking or attacking the thief, and the tied dog?
Here’s the story:
An old woman lived in a small house on the edges of the town, enveloped by numerous other houses.
She had a small dog named Rex, a friendly canine companion who had lived with the old woman for many years.
Rex loved his owner dearly, and she, too, cherished him with all her heart.
In that tranquil village, rumors spread about an unknown thief who would break into the residents’ homes and steal their belongings.
The thief always targeted the houses of people who had money and wealth, usually when they were away for long periods.
The old woman became worried about these crimes and even feared that the thief might come to her house as well.
However, she felt reassured when she saw her faithful dog, Rex, sitting outside the house, tied up as usual.
Robbery of the old woman’s house🚪💼
There was a kind neighbor named Jojo who frequently visited the old woman.
One day, Jojo went to see her, but when she knocked on the door, the old woman didn’t open it.
Jojo was surprised and looked through one of the windows, only to find it broken.
Peering inside the room, she saw the old woman tied up, blindfolded, and lying on the floor.
Jojo immediately called the police, who arrived promptly.
They discovered that the thief had stolen the old woman’s money and jewelry and started searching for clues.
Despite their investigation, the thief left no trace or evidence, executing the robbery with precision.
The detective pondered how the thief managed to enter the old woman’s house and others in the area, considering that there was a dog guarding her property, and she took care of it.
He wondered where to start and how to proceed with the investigation.
He began by questioning the closest neighbors to the old woman, including Jojo.
He asked her if she heard any unusual noises, screams, or anything out of the ordinary on the night of the incident.
Jojo replied, “It was an unusual night.”
The detective asked, “What do you mean by an unusual night?”
Jojo explained, “Usually, we hear the dog barking a lot whenever anyone passes by the old woman’s house, and it doesn’t allow anyone to approach.
But that night, the dog was quiet. I didn’t hear a single sound from it.”
The Dog was quiet” The first clue!”🤫🧩
The detective thought to himself, “This is the first clue!”
He then inquired about anyone who visited or entered the old woman’s house before the incident.
Jojo mentioned that the old woman’s married daughter visited her regularly, and occasionally her married son would visit too.
The detective asked Jojo if the daughter and son came alone or if someone accompanied them.
She replied that they usually came alone whenever she saw them, but she wasn’t aware of other times.
The detective said, “Did your mother’s visits happen in the morning, the evening, or at night?”
Jojo replied, “I usually see them coming in the morning, and occasionally in the evening, but they never visit at night.”
The detective requested the presence of the old woman’s son, whose name was Shamm, and he came along with his own son.
The detective asked them, “Did anyone else visit your mother besides both of you?”
They both answered, “No.”
The detective then inquired, “Who visited your mother last? Did her daughter or son come?”
The old woman’s daughter replied, “I visited her. I brought her food, cleaned her room, and fed her dog.”
The detective asked her, “Did you notice anything strange that caught your attention?”
The old woman’s son added, “Yes, there was something unusual that puzzled me.”
The detective asked, “What was it?
” The son responded, “I found some bone remains near the dog.
I used to give the dog food regularly, and I cleaned up its place, but recently, the food I provided didn’t have any bones.
So, how did these bones end up there, knowing that the dog is usually tied up and doesn’t get any meat or bones?”
The tie dog said, “The second clue!”🐶🔍
The detective paused for a moment and thought, “This is the second clue!”
He returned to his office and gathered all the information he had heard from the witnesses.
He concluded that the key to solving the case lies with the dog. However, he wondered how to access this key.
He thought to himself, “If the dog didn’t consume any drugs, why was it quiet on the day of the crime?”
The detective requested to re-interview the old woman’s son, Shamm.
When Shamm arrived, the detective asked him, “Please try to remember, did anyone accompany you on one of your visits to your mother?”
Shamm initially said, “No,” but then hesitated and said, “Wait, I do recall something.”
The detective was intrigued and asked, “Who and what happened?”
Shamm explained, “I was going to visit my mother when my friend John met me on the way.
He asked where I was heading, and I told him about visiting my mother.
John decided to come along with me to her house.
When we arrived, the dog attacked John because he was a stranger.
So, I went inside, brought a piece of meat, and gave it to John to offer to the dog.
The dog accepted the meat from him and then calmed down, wagging its tail at John.”
The detective thought to himself, “This is the third and final clue.”
The detective asked Shamm for John’s address and phone number.
After obtaining the information, the detective called John and requested his presence at the police station.
John appeared fearful, with fear visible in his eyes and trembling hands.
The detective asked John to sit down and reassured him, “I haven’t accused you of anything.”
Then the detective said to John, “Do you know the house of your friend Shamm’s mother?”
John replied, “I have seen it from a distance, but I never approached it because he has a dog, and I’m afraid of dogs.”
The detective said, “What do you think? Let’s go together to Shamm’s mother’s house.”
John hesitated and wanted to retreat, but the detective encouraged him, saying, “Don’t worry, I’ll be with you. The dog won’t bite you as long as I’m here.”
Reluctantly, John agreed and accompanied the detective to the old woman’s house.
When they arrived, John stopped and hesitated to approach the dog.
The detective asked him to come closer, but John refused, saying, “I’m scared it will bite me.”
The detective reassured him, “Don’t be afraid,” and insisted they move forward. As they approached the dog, it wagged its tail and sat on the ground.
The dog respects John, “The last clue.”👤🕵️♂️
The detective said to John, “Do you see how the dog respects you?
It wouldn’t do this unless it knew you before. You are someone dear to it, right?”
Unable to speak, John started sweating profusely.
He broke down, slapped his face, and finally confessed to the crime.
The points of interest of the ancient woman’s burglary were uncovered by John:
He had noticed a large gold necklace and gold bracelets on the old woman’s chest during one of his visits with Shamm.
The idea of stealing had sparked in his mind.
He planned the theft carefully, buying meat and some bones.
He wore a mask and sneaked into the old woman’s house in the middle of the night.
Since he often accompanied Shamm, the dog recognized him and remained calm.
He offered the meat and bones, and when the old woman saw him, she got scared and fainted.
He tied her up, covered her eyes, and closed her mouth.
He then stole as much money and jewelry as he could find and left quietly.
After his confession, the thief was apprehended, and it was discovered that he was responsible for other house robberies in nearby villages.
The detective’s intelligence and Rex’s loyalty enabled them to uncover the crime, even while Rex was tied up, preventing the thief from achieving his goals.
In this way, Rex the dog became the hero who saved his owner’s old woman from the thief, and she embraced him warmly, happy for his barking joy.
The entire village admired Rex, celebrating his heroism at a special party.
He had indeed become a faithful guardian and close friend to his owner, the old woman.
The old woman thanked the investigator and said to him:
You are a skilled detective.
