Library Journal Pre-Pub Alert: The Dog Who Knew Too Much


Quinn, Spencer. The Dog Who Knew Too Much: A Chet and Bernie Mystery. Atria. Sept. 2011. 320p. ISBN 9781439157091. $25; eISBN 9781439163078.

One wonders whether this dog knew how popular Quinn’s series would be when it launched a few years back with Dog On It. In any case, cool canine Chet and his beloved Bernie are busy. They’ve been hired to find a boy missing from a wilderness camp and possibly snatched by his divorced dad, but Chet noses out some new clues that make things look more desperate. Meanwhile, both Bernie’s girlfriend’s old boyfriend and a stray pup suspiciously resembling Chet appear on the scene. Great, cozy fun even if you’re not nuts for dogs; with a four-city tour and a reading group guide.

“Accurate plot-wise?” says Admin.

“Perhaps not in every detail,” says Spence. “But nice.”


Hmmff? One of those interesting human sounds I never get tired of. What do I get tired of? Hey! There’s a thought.

    “Fun” yes, “cozy” no. Hmmff.

    Good morning Chet and everyone.

    B: We like to get real “cozy” with Mom when she is reading the scary parts.

    Spencer!….Thank you for that wonderful and highly entertaining account of what happens before the book actually comes out!…snort!…I’m still laughing, and I never laugh!…heh!

    Ohhhhh…..we get a reading group guide with CB4!

    This should be fun! (and maybe just a tad bit cozy)

    Guide!….I don’t quite understand this part in Chet’s post above, “with a four-city tour and a reading group guide”….snort!….What does this mean?

    I have no idea if the Kindle edition will have it, but it means the hard back will come with a section in the back with questions for reading groups.

    My sister is a member of two. One meets at the library and the other at Starbucks.

    I meet here.

    From last night’s posting. I have always loved “The Closer” and we’ve gotten the first season, on DVD’s, through Netflix. Going to see if Dan and Zoë like them.

    Oh, WE HAVE SUN!!

    10:25 am on March 1st, 2011

    Wolfie!…Did you read about everything that has to happen before the book comes out?….snort!… There’s never enough time apparently…sniff! ….Click on the link “As Time Goes By” under the first Chet the Dog post in the right hand column and it will take you to Spencer’s full explanation. It’s well worth the trip. …snort!

    Good Dog, Riö went to FaceBook . . .

    Melanie, We Googled Kyra Sedgwick this morning, and 2011 is the end of the series. It was her choice, and maybe she felt that it was losing its freshness, as remarked by T & G, we think.

    March 1st. Yeah!

  14. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:33 am on March 1st, 2011

    Melanie!… I went there and then I got really scared so I came back immediately!!….snort! …The story was worth the frightful experience…snorkel!

  15. Barb & Maggie
    10:43 am on March 1st, 2011

    Rio, We just read Time Goes By, and it was really funny, especially his description of authors.

    Barb says she would be a good copy editor, because she always find inconsistencies in books. She is a stickler for little details, like ages of characters, days of the week, etc.

    She read a Fannie Flagg book once where the character was visiting the St. Louis Arch in the 1930’s when it wasn’t built till the early 60’s. Billie Letts had a character dying in the Vietnam war, when he couldn’t have been over 6. Those kinds of things drive her CRAZY, almost as crazy as Charlie Sheen!

    BTW, they had an interview with his two Goddesses this morning.
    They are in their early 20’s and one says “like” about every other word!

  16. Melanie
    10:46 am on March 1st, 2011

    Like, the word “Like”, really like bugs me when people like use it in like conversations. (inflection goes up here, though it is not a question)

    Brave Riö, for facing the terrors of FaceBook.

  17. OleyHowlers
    10:58 am on March 1st, 2011

    We don’t do FB, but our mom does (obsessively) and she said the story about why it takes so long to publish date was very funny (altho maybe true).

  18. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:03 am on March 1st, 2011

    Quirks!….Now, after I’ve calmed down from the FB adventure, I am sitting here wondering which of our authors falls into the categories of “tedious/annoying/aggressive/bizarre personality.” Spencer’s words mind you!…snort!

  19. Melanie
    11:14 am on March 1st, 2011

    That would probably be Peter, not Spencer.:)

  20. Melanie
    11:16 am on March 1st, 2011

    Hey B. Stover: I just bought The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet: A Novel. Should be here in two days.

    Unless Riö’s goats have come East.

  21. Melanie
    11:18 am on March 1st, 2011

    Whew, need to get away from what ever the Plaster Dude is doing.

    See you after he leaves late this afternoon.

    Barb has another funny (?) story about her obsessive attention to detail. Years ago she read a Catherine Colter mystery, where the main character had a calico cat, mentioned often in the story. She kept refering to the cat as “he”. Calico cats are almost always “she” since the calico color is sex-linked. Barb felt compelled to write Catherin Colter about this, and suggested changing calico to yellow, since calico was only mentioned a few times, but “he” was written about a bazillion times. Believe it or not, she got a personal, signed note from CC, thanking her, and saying that they were correction the mistake. Barb’s daughter who had been laughing at her, had to eat her words!

  23. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:54 am on March 1st, 2011

    MagPie!… “… saying that they were correction the mistake.” You pay attention to detail. Really?….snorkel!

  24. Barb & Maggie
    11:57 am on March 1st, 2011

    Rio, Must learn to proof read before pushing submit!

  25. Barb & Maggie
    12:01 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Like, sorry like we should have like noticed that like mistake. Like, Duh!

  26. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:17 pm on March 1st, 2011

    MagPie!….What kind of day would it be if I didn’t give you a hard time?….snort!

  27. B.Stover
    12:28 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Oley: I think you’re using “cozy” in a different sense to that of the Library Journal. These are not “cozy” mysteries, a term I always find offensive.

  28. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:30 pm on March 1st, 2011

    MagPie!…While you are paying so much attention to detail, why don’t you delete the “http//!/” sitting in the “Website” field down below under your Name and Mail are?….snort!….This is making your Name turn blue….grunt!

  29. Barb & Maggie
    12:31 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Rio, My day would not be complete without you to critique me! Slurp!

    Barb is heading to the library and then to work for Crazy Lady II for a while. I am going to take a nap and work on my literary skills. BBL

  30. Barb & Maggie
    12:34 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Rio, That is not failure to pay attention to detail, that is lack of techno knowledge. Never realized that those letters had anything to do with anything. We removed them.

  31. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:37 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Cozy!… I’ve never found The Chet and Bernie mysteries to be cozy at all.…..snort!… Gosh I can’t wait for the next one to come out!…gruff!…It just over-whelms me sometimes!….gruffle!

    Yea!…Barb and MagPie are White again!…sneeze!

  32. B.Stover
    12:51 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Melanie: I really enjoyed the T.S. Spivet novel–the story as well as all the diagrams. Hope you like it.

  33. OleyHowlers
    1:19 pm on March 1st, 2011

    We just pre-ordered Dog Who Knew Too Much on our Kindle. Yay!

  34. B.Stover
    1:58 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Here’s something from one of VanGogh’s letters that I like (number 464 to his brother Theo): “You do not know how paralyzing that staring of a blank canvas is that says to the painter, You can’t do anything…Many painters are afraid of the blank canvas, but the blank canvas is afraid of the really passionate painter who is daring–and who has once and for all broken that spell of ‘you cannot.'”

    VanGogh was a plunderer.

  35. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:18 pm on March 1st, 2011

    VanGogh! ….A Plunderer!…snort!snort!… I like the sound of that!…snuffle!

    heh heh

  38. dawson
    2:47 pm on March 1st, 2011

    B.Stover: What is a “cozy” mystery? Or, what does the Library Journal mean by “cozy”?

    2:52 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Macy, You must have those letters in your Website section, too. How come Rio hasn’t notice that?

    Wolfie, how are your boys doing? Hope things are going smoothly for everyone.

    Siber, How is Mom today?

  40. Macy the Min-Pin
    2:58 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Maggs, I just addded them in once Rio, mention yours, heh heh.

  41. dawson
    3:07 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Oh Macy: You are so-oh hilariously bad!

  42. Mollypop
    3:16 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Macy – You remind me of a little joke the kids tell:

    Two boys, Shutup and Trouble, went for a walk. Trouble got lost. Shutup was crying when a policeman came along and said, “What’s your name little boy?” He said, “Shutup.” The policeman said, “Are you looking for trouble?”

  43. B.Stover
    3:44 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Dawson: A “cozy” mystery is supposed to be “gentle” with nothing graphic–violence, language, sex–and the sleuth is usually female, non-professional. It often takes place in a village and always feels comfortable. I think the Miss Marple series would probably be considered “cozy.” I love the Agatha Christie mysteries because the puzzle in each is always intelligent and figuring it out is not easy. I hate the term “cozy” because I think that, similar to the term “chick flick” for a film, it is used to mean that the mystery or film is trivial, unimportant and that only woman could be interested.

    3:45 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Happy 201 birthday to Chopin. Love Chopin!

    4:01 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Bee, I think maybe Jaine Austen mysteries would be cozy. They are non violent, and I can’t imagine mny men being interested in them. They were recommended on this blog and we have read 2 so far. They are worth a chuckle or two.

    Macy, you little dickens!

    4:02 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Oh no, hit submit too fast, once again That should be many men.

  47. dawson
    4:04 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Thanks B.Stover: I get it now.
    Mollypop: Patrick Kane has been in hockey news lately, or maybe I’m just hearing his name because the man in this house is a Chicago Blackhawks fan.
    Happy 1 year anniversary (yesterday) of Sidney Crosby’s overtime Olympic hockey goal, giving the Canadian team the gold medal and the United States the silver. 🙂

  48. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:09 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Stover!….I love Chompin too!… gruff!

  49. Mollypop
    4:14 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Dawson – It’s good to hear that Pat Kane is behaving himself. Wait till he comes home here for the summer. Yikes!

    We have huge hockey news – the Sabres have been purchased by Terry Pegula. Tom Golisano, our previous owner, saved the Sabres from bankruptcy, so good for him, but this new guy has had Sabres’ seasons tickets for 18 years. He was a hockey dad who took his son to 4 a.m. ice time. He tells us he is in this to win a Stanley Cup. Mom is so-o-o excited.

  50. Mollypop
    4:16 pm on March 1st, 2011

    And we want Sidney Crosby!

    Back from PT. Had PT Dan this time.
    Macy: when you wrote Test and then Heh, I knew you were after someone!

    Knee is better. I’m to take in the list of machines from “Curves” so they can see what I can use now and then add as my knee gets better.

    Pretty cool.

  53. B.Stover
    4:27 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Rio: Did Chompin compose music for the piano as well?

  54. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:46 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Stover!…I can’t tell whether you didn’t get my joke or you are just trying to be funny….grunt!

  55. B.Stover
    4:56 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Rio: I got your joke and I’m trying to be funny….without success.

    Melanie: I’m glad your knee is better. Never heard of “curves.”

  56. B.Stover
    4:56 pm on March 1st, 2011

    We haven’t heard from SH yet.

  57. B.Stover
    4:59 pm on March 1st, 2011

    B&M: Do you think that the Jaine Austen mysteries are trivial?

    Ooooh, there’s a puppy in DogWhoKnoo!!! I like loooooooooooove puppies.

  59. Macy the Min-Pin
    5:12 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Thank you, thank you very much *nodding modestly*

    Melanie, you go to Curves? Mom used to go, then they closed the one close by and she was too lazy unable to go to the next nearest one.

  60. Mollypop
    5:23 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Dawson – I’m in despair. I thought we would get Sidney Crosby (I know, in our dreams), but it just dawned on me that he’d still be Canadian in the Olympics. What to do, what to do.

    5:26 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Bee, Laura Levin’s series, judging from what I have read so far, is light and entertaining, but not at all meaty. She is witty, and throws out numerous comments about Hollywood, various entertainers, and about her lack of dietary control. They are quick, easy reading and fun. I will check out more from the library,but I don’t like them enough that I would buy them or give as gifts. Does that help?

  62. B.Stover
    5:32 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Yes, thank you B&M. I like your explanation.

    5:34 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Bee, Curves is a nation wide health club for women. It has a bunch of machines, and most people go for short workouts. One gal at the real estate office goes, and she just got her 2,000 visit certificate!

  64. Macy the Min-Pin
    5:37 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Maggie, that is just crazy talk.

    5:40 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Bee, Jaine Austen is 36, slightly plump, divorced from The Blob, and has a cat named Prozac. She also has been on a sexual hiatus for a while, which she laments in her novels.

  66. Siber-H

    We already love everything about The Dog Who!!!

  67. Melanie
    5:55 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Macy: I don’t go yet. But there is one down the hill to the East and one to the West. I figure I could do either one.

    Dan and Zoë love “The Closer”. It will be our evening show for awhile. There are quite a few seasons on Netflix.

  68. dawson
    6:24 pm on March 1st, 2011

    I’m watching Any Human Heart, a Masterpiece Classic that I had recorded a couple weeks ago. It has some of the same actors in it as Pillars of the Earth, a mini-series based on a Ken Follett novel that I have also been watching.
    Not much work getting done, although the grocery shopping got done because it is the first tuesday of the month 10 percent off day.

    6:45 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Mom is getting ready to probably retire for the evening, but she figures she can come back to the blog later tonight and read more.

    Mom spent 2/3 of the day in the ER at the hospital because of “extreme shortness of breath” and being just overall sick. In case you are wondering, this is the first time the idiot has been to the doctor since she got sick a week ago. They did a chest x-ray and said she has a bronchitis infection. She now has super-duper antibiotics to take for ten days, and, oh yeah, they sent her home on oxygen…it is just for now. They say that when the infection is better, her breathing will be better. Also, respitory problems are more difficult to cope with at this altitude.

    I am still living an episode of the X-Files, but you will notice, she got the computer turned on for me.

  70. Melanie
    6:46 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Siber-H: you should try this with your mom. . .

  71. Melanie
    6:48 pm on March 1st, 2011

    What is it about the Plunderers and breathing. I would say all the moms and dads and friends need to do what C.Harris said and take a deep breath every morning, but she got it too!

    Everyone get well. It’s the year of the Rabbit.

    7:09 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Good evening, y’all! Perhaps we need to do a daily countdown here so we all know how many days are left until TDWKDM comes out! (Doesn’t have quite the ring of TFAT or DOI, does it?) Kind of a “This number of shopping days until Christmas” calendar!!!

  74. B.Stover
    7:13 pm on March 1st, 2011

    The Siberian H did seem to stop the crying.

    SH: I’m glad your mom finally got medicine.

    There do seem to be many breathing problems….

  75. dawson
    7:23 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Supper!….Someone here is still trying to sort out her supper…grunt!…She’s had the last of the cottage out of the carton already tonight! Thank goodness that is gone!….snort!…Now she’s starting on toast. I wonder what will be next? I’ve eaten all my food just in case she gets an idea….sniff!

    8:12 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Fur Folks and Friends, I’m signing off now. I can’t use my computer upstairs in my workroom, because it’s 20 degrees and the windows are open.

    Have fun tonight, I’ll read you in the morning. At least my bedroom is being purified by two ionic machines.


  82. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:26 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Crazy!…Why is Melanie’s windows open when it’s 20 degrees and getting colder outside?….snort!…Is it just me, or is that whole household a little tilted at times?…grunt!…Maybe it’s because of the plaster fumes. Does plaster even have fumes?….wheeze!

  83. Basil and Sage
    8:31 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Hey Rio –
    Did we ever tell you about our best friends? We know inter-species friendships are rare, but there is just something about those Goats that we like. And today when they came to visit, they brought us a copy of Quacky Baseball….
    Wonder if we should ask where they got it, since they aren’t allowed in stores? hmmmmm

  84. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:44 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Herbals!…That’s just a load of goat droppings…snort!…You guys couldn’t make friends with a wee little lamb if your lives depended on it…sniff! …Plus, it’s a well known fact that goats don’t socialize with anyone….grunt!

  85. dawson
    8:45 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Rio: Yes, it’s the fumes. Melanie was complaining about them earlier. Either that or she has been visiting with C.Harris.

    Montague!….They could have their own Reality Show…snort!…Really! What with the Huge Pack and everything that is always going on over there….zowie!…It would be an instant hit for sure…gruff!…We’d watch it if Zoe threw in some cooking tips…heh!…Imagine the ratings when the next batch of puppies arrive!…gruff!

    Well I have caught up with the blog from last night and today and now I am going to get ready for bed. I have been doing a lot of sleeping and a little bit of work. I have sure been tired lately but the cold wasn’t bad at all.

    Hope you get to go back in your room Melanie. There is nothing like your own bed. I was off work today and went sewing with all my vintage sewing machine collecting friends. We made all the blocks for a quilt top. We have to get together again to sew the blocks together. We used all people powered machines. Handcranks to be exact. It was fun but tiring. I had to come home and take a nap.

  88. Barb & Maggie

    Paying attention to detail here, and a lamb is a baby sheep. A baby goat is called a kid. Just saying!

  89. Basil and Sage
    9:09 pm on March 1st, 2011

    Awwww Rio- don’t be gruff. Do you want us to just butt out? Did we get your goat? Now we’re just sheepish.

    Good night all.

You hang out with Kats!….sniff!…That is very telling indeed!…snort!…Those Herbals remind us of some characters we have read about in a childrens book this week. I can’t remember their names, because she loaned the book out already…. drat!…Why in the HELL does she do that???…sniff!

    Rio, I think you have been reading my doctor’s mind. I have never been anemic. In fact I insisted on multivitamins without iron because iron makes my tummy burn. But my doctor said my iron was just a bit low and he is doing a checkup on all the iron stuff when I do my next blood test. A couple more weeks from now.

    At least I can breath nicely.

    G’nite all. G’day Liz.

    Rio – we like it when Macy hangs out with us. And don’t forget – Siber is more than just a little bit Kat himself.
    If Alice, Abbie and BlueCat join in, you could soon be outnumbered. heh heh!

    Melanie, mom and I enjoyed the video. Yes, Rio, I can sound like that. Dad has an alarm clock that I absolutely hate. If the alarm goes off, I go off just like the dog in the video. My folks do get up then…I will say that.

    I like Rio’s suggestion of a Reality Show starring Melanie’s family, the Newfs, and co-starring beavers and summer people. It would be a big hit.

    Groan!…These guys aren’t even entertaining. I need a real Nemesis. A Dark Undercover Spy…snort! One who is lurking and sneaking and trying to find out about our Missions…grunt!… The Herbals and Minpin are just low-totem-pole comics…snuff!… I want Alice the Super Model spy back! ….dammit! …I think she has retired and will never be heard from again….groan!…Although, I have to say the blog is better off without Alice….heh!…But still, they fun we had last year…gruffle!

    Here in Chevy Chase we want to know what four cities are on the book tour for TDWKTM. It would be really great if one were Washington, DC (hope, hope, hope, hope). My friend Julie came by today; she is a Field Spaniel puppy, and she drops a lot of her treats all over the place. I was a litltle tired this morning, but Julie helped perk me up. Her mom is working on a quilting project with my mom, so she comes to visit about once a week now. Hope SiberH’s mom feels better soon. Wookie

    Kirby!….We are watching with clenched jaws the final episode of Worst Cooks!…snort!….She is very sad that this whole ordeal will be over with soon…grunt!…Me, I see this kink of worst cook thing happen every night when she gets home….sniff!…Lets face it, I’m tired of the whole show because I live it daily!…heh…But the “winner” of this thing actually gets a cart full of money. Now why the hell doesn’t she go on this show and win us some big bucks????…wuffle!sneeze!

    Wookie!… I really hope he does go on a book tour somewhere close to you…sniffle!…I think both of those guys, Admin and Spencer, should say a friendly, “Hello and how are you?” to you and your family…gruffle!…It would mean a lot I’m sure to be petted, belly scratched and patted by your favorite Authors…sniff! …Spence and Admin, what say you guys? Wookie would really like to meet you someday soon!…heh!…. (As would all of us, I’m sure!!!!) …gruff!gruff!

    Puss N’ Boots!…Nice to hear from you finally!…snort!…But wouldn’t you rather Wookie got to meet Spencer and the Charming Mr. Abrahams this year instead of you again?….grunt! …Don’t be Author Selfish guys!…heh!

    We mostly just want Wookie to get well. Mom cried when she read he was ill, but is hopeful that the treatments work wonders for him. And yes, we do hope he gets to meet SQ. His mom and dad are so super intelligent and informed, and we’re sure they would ask great questions and give a report as great as Kirby’s mom did.

    Sorry we came across as selfish. Just excited about the new book.

    Wanting something does not make it happen, so it can’t be selfish. Mom used to work with a crazy lady who went wild every time mom said that she liked snow. “Don’t you know people get into accidents and die, how can you want that for people” Mom is pretty sure that just wanting things does not make them happen.

    Puss N’ Boots!….You did not come off as ‘selfish’ by all means…snort!… I wish I had never used that word ‘selfish’. It does not define you guys at all…huffle! …Although, you are special because you have already been in the presence of our beloved Author and most of us have not! (Yet!) … I just want Wookie to meet these guys sometime soon this year!….snort!…That is what I will be praying for and hoping for with all my Puggish Might!…gruff!… Pugs have a way of getting what they want, you know….snorkel!sneeze!

    Rambling!… MinPin is sort of rambling but at least her blog name is White again!…woof!…Rambling, which I do tend to do late at night when everyone else has drifted off and snoring in their beds. I do tend to go on about my bed, and all the blankets and toys that I have pushed into just the right place so that I can lay down in the middle and they sort of sink in beside me when I stop twirling around and finally flop into my warm soft bed….whomp! snuffle!

    Good Night All! ….slurp!
