Chet is a dog anyone could love -- well as long as you stayed on his good side anyway. Bernie is a P.I. and Chet is his partner. Chet was training to become a police dog; he was the best jumper in his class. Unfortunately that was also his downfall. But no matter, now he's with Bernie and the two of them make a great investigative pair. The really fun part of this mystery is that Chet narrates the story - dog fashion! If he remembers a smell that may be a clue but can't seem to get Bernie to pay attention, well he just may get distracted a bit too and go on to something else. Like wondering why cats catch birds. After all, he never has. Well, cats are just strange anyway. This book is a delight, and I'm keeping my eye out for more.
