NCIS Character Mentions Bark
The takeaway: Adopting mutts is hip
Deeks tells Kensi about Bark magazine.

The Bark got an unexpected shout-out last night on “NCIS: Los Angeles.” About 14 minutes into the episode, Deeks, an LAPD officer played by Eric Christian Olsen, heads to a café with Kensi, a special ops field agent played by Daniela Ruah, to track down members of a Libyan resistance movement. In the backseat of their car perches an adorable rescue mutt named Monty. He actually looks a lot like Deeks, who tries to convince Kensi the dog will be perfect cover for their undercover work. He tells her, “it is actually requirement for young, hip couples in Los Angeles to have rescue dogs.”

He plans to have Monty pose as a service animal to get into the café. When Kensi looks skeptical, Deeks explains a little more about service animals. “I read about it in Bark magazine,” he says. “Did you get that? Bark magazine? Their motto is Dog Is My CoPilot? No? Not gonna fly?” At this point, Monty leans forward from the backseat and plants a big lick on Kensi’s face. (Of course, we wish the script had Monty join the pair in the café rather than leaving him in the car on a warm day—even with the NPR playing.)

Later on in the episode, named of all things “Deadline” (just as we were putting the finishing touches to our November issue), Monty is awarded a badge for his policing work. Nice touch! Go Monty.

The episode can be viewed on the CBS show website.
