Chet the Jet is Bernie’s partner in crime detection. He has sat through a million stakeouts. “Okay, possibly not a million. Truth is, I’m not too sure about a million, what it means, exactly–or any other number for that matter–but I get the drift from Bernie. A million means a lot , like “out the yingyang,” another favorite number of Bernie’s, maybe even bigger.”
When Bernie is distracted or not paying attention a growl from Chet will save the moment. His canine nose also provides the next step in many sticky situations. This time 15-year-old Madison is missing. Chet notes her pillowcase smells of young human female, with hints of honey, cherry, and a kind of sun-colored flower he sometimes sees along roadsides. He also smells a smell familiar from his days in K-9 school and sees under her table a small bag of marijuana. Madison soon shows up but within a few days Cynthia, her distraught mother calls again with news that Madison has been missing for a day.
Chet narrates this entertaining story from his doggie perspective which causes me to look twice at every dog I see and consider just what is going on behind those cute faces. Enjoy Dog on It: A Chet and Bernie Mystery.
