Upper Story …

… is the new Chet and Bernie short story, free to preorderers of HEART OF BARKNESS. See link below. Here’s an excerpt:

Chuckie raised his head, turned in my direction, blinked.


My tail started wagging. How nice to be well known! I admit it.

Chuckie rolled over, grunted, got to his knees, gave me a big smile. “Good to see you, Chet.” His smile got even bigger, actually too big. “Now how’s about running along?”

What was this? Chuckie wanted to go for a run? He didn’t look like much of a runner to me, and also this wasn’t the right time. Later maybe? Like after he was done with wearing an orange jumpsuit and breaking rocks in the hot sun? I couldn’t think why not. My tail got busy again.

“Heh, heh, there’s a good doggie.” Chuckie reached for the backpack, swept some cell phones back inside, seemed about to rise to his feet. I tried another bark, this one meaning: Chuckie?

    Good morning everyone. It seems that Chuckie doesn’t speak very fluent Chet.
    Waiting for this duo with baity breath.
    Enjoy your day.

    I always laugh when Chet refers to someone “wearing an orange jumpsuit and breaking rocks in the hot sun.” :^)

    Looking forward to both the new C&B book and short story!

    RIO! Last night was not a good night for my Yankees…

    Good day to all!

    I’m wondering who Chuckie is.

    Good morning all.

    Have the seven new puppies been named yet?
    How about checkpoints near where they were born?

    B. Chuckie or Chuckles, both sound in need of an orange jumpsuit.
