Perp with a Name

And a tiny dust cloud popped up right beside me. “Chet! Get down!” Something in the sound of Bernie’s voice made me lie down right away. “No, boy, back under cover!” I was a little confused. Bernie rolled out past me, fired the .38 Special up at the rocky cliff side. Then came another cry of pain, and another rifle spinning down from above. We looked up, saw two men scrambling along a trail at the very top. One was bald; the other had short white hair that shone in the sun. He looked vaguely familiar, but the two men reached the top and vanished before a name came to me.

Bernie rose. “The white-haired guy,” he said. “Was that Freddie Dancer?” 

Uh-oh. I remembered Freddie Dancer.

    Another perp!? I might have to create a spreadsheet for all the perps! Freddie Dancer, Churchill, Freud….

    You've got your work cut out for you Chet!

    "A spreadsheet," Bernie says. "Why didn't I think of that?"

    Um. Bernie? Those spreadsheets? They also do a very good job of keeping track of where you are financially. Just sayin'.

    We're the two Jack Russells who run Miss Jan's household and we BELIEVE in the power of spreadsheets! Except she was a little concerned when the dog treats column total exceeded the dog toy column total and the both of them exceeded the vacations savings column total. So we hid the spreadsheets for a while but did not eat them (homework and passports taste better anyway).

    Sirius the cat (named for the Harry Potter character who was named for the Dog star) eats cardboard boxes. Gnaws on them, leaving little bits of gummy cardboard everywhere. I wish he'd eat spreadsheets instead– I think it's be easier to clean up.

    We Jack Russells love cardboard TP and PT rolls and we think that Chet might find them wonderful things to shred – makes a lovely mess! Yessss!

    Oh no spreadsheets! Whenever my Mommy has one she's always in a bad mood. Spreadsheets make you crabby.

    This is like a new form of epistolary novel. I love it! Chet, I'm glad you listened to Bernie and got under cover.

    Stay down Chet! It's a good thing Bernie's a better shot than those two guys.

    The attempted murder was unsuccessful and he still patrols our yard effortlessly
    valiant diligence. The area should also be level and so the water runs off evenly,
    and it should be near a fairly easy water source. Coffee can produce similar symptoms in dogs and may also
    be avoided (I once had your dog which loved to drink a cup full of tea – no sugar – which can be perfectly fine).
