While serving in the United States Air Force, Sergeant Kyle Smilth and his German Shepherd called Bodza met. In 2006, Bodza became a bomb detector. He helped save lives by sniffing bombs. Bodza and Smith established a solid friendship after working together till 2012.
” I loved working with him because he taught me a lot– patience as a young handler, and how to recognize that this work isn’t just about you,” Smith said.
” He was much more loyal at home,” Smith said. “He followed me around everywhere. He would certainly lay his head down flush with the bed and tell me good night, every night.”
” His back limbs shed their usage and he could barely stand up any longer, much less walk,” Smith claimed. “He could not deal with the stress on his body and using the restroom was a task.”
Bodza crossed the rainbow, however he seemed pleased in his last moments. “He had a smile on his face when he was getting put to sleep,” Smith claimed.
” I will never forget how loyal he was,” Smith said. “He was generous– more than any human I’ve ever before recognized. He’s done so much for next to nothing and did it with a smile. I miss him every day.”
