Ross Macdonald and Iggy

And yes! Iggy was out! Out and free! Out and free and running around crazily, his huge ears flopping and flying. I hardly heard what Bernie was telling Suzie, maybe something like this:

“The long-ago violent act was this killing – almost certainly an accident, but a killing just the same – of a young woman who was in the wrong place when Louis B. Mayer and Erich von Stroheim were struggling for the gun. That struggle got captured on film, film that might have been shot by Ezra Printz, PR flack, but for sure ended up in his hands.”

“How do we know it’s a real killing,” Suzie said, “and not some kind of scene?”

“If it was just play acting there wouldn’t have been all this effort to find it,” Bernie said. “Also, it was labeled ‘The Greed Murder’. But the main thing is you’d have to see it. It’s on the desk in the office.”

Suzie went that way.

“I thought you said it was in the safe,” said Trimmer.

“Caught in a lie,” said Bernie.

And meanwhile, Iggy was zooming around, making lots of sudden stops to mark every possible object.

    Yay for Iggy! He is in the pursuit of happiness – a dog's life.

    Perhaps Iggy needs a cat to keep him company inside since he doesn't get out much to visit with Chet (sorry, Chet, I know you aren't fond of cats but we can be a really cool nation, too).

    I don't have a dog right now, but when I did, they always lived peacefully with cats. In wintertime, the cats would invite themselves to snuggle up with the lab or the golden and the dogs always tolerated that action with a huge sigh.

    Woops. Thanks about the clue about Max and Buddy. I was not focusing, and thought they were characters in Dog On It. I need to read that book again. It is a delight for sure.
