Me and Iggy

Iggy’s jumping up and down in his window right now! I can see him. He’s also doing his yip-yip-yip thing. He wants out. Iggy’s my best pal. He lives next door with Mr. and Mrs. Parsons, this old couple. Bernie says they’re not in good shape. Iggy and I used to roam through the canyon together but then the electric fence salesman came and sold one to Mr. and Mrs. Parsons. Iggy never got used to it and now I never see him, except in the window. The electric fence guy tried to sell us one, too. Bernie took that collar in his hand and walked right through the zapper. Then he just turned to the electric fence guy and shook his head. Bernie’s the best, in case I haven’t made that clear. 

But I miss Iggy. Did you know he’s great at digging? Once he dug up this old Indian blanket. The teacher who came from the college to look at it said it would have been worth big money if it hadn’t gotten so chewed up. That might have happened from me and Iggy playing tug of war with it, can’t quite remember. Did we have fun or what?

    Ah, yes…doggies love the ‘tug of war’ game–what fun memories except the times I found my dogs playing with my underwear.

    Hey, Bernie needs to offer to take Iggy a couple of times a week to help out Mr. and Mrs. Parsons. Is there room in the car? If one dog is good on a case, imagine what two dogs could do! I am sure Iggy has some unique talents to offer –those little dogs can be vicious at biting around the ankles which would help take a perp down. Also people tend to trip over little dogs so that could come in handy. And I’m sure if you glare at him, Iggy will shut up on stakeouts. Bernie is wonderful but he is a human; two dogs in cahoots could get into all kinds of adventures.

    I love the way your mind works, and I must say, you have your prioities straight. We think you should make a dogster page ( if you haven't already. Maybe Chet (or Aubry) can introduce a WHOLE lot of dog lover's to your Chet & Bernie mysteries. I know they'd love to hear about them. Plese hurry up and get your next book done, Chet, OK? (January is a long way off, especially in Dog Years).

    Barkingly yours, Carol & the Pack
