What Can Go Wrong Will Go Wrong

“Tell you what,” said Kelo Printz, client turned perp, “you can keep the painting.” He laid one of the film cans on the hall table. “It’s probably worth something, plus it’s kind of creepy.” Worth something. Did that make him a client again? I wasn’t sure. He opened the door and backed out, film can under one arm, gun pointed at Bernie. Backing out, so he didn’t see Iggy, standing right outside the door, wagging his stubby tail.

    I hope Iggy comes to the rescue. He is such a cool little guy, with a big dog attitude.

    Ha, ha. Iggy is kind of a clueless hero….wagging his tail instead of growling or barking. Whatever works; at least he is in the right place at the right time. I hope the gun doesn't go off when the bad guy trips over Iggy since Bernie, Chet or Suzie could be hurt.

    I predict ribs in the near future for both Chet and Iggy. Is this the most perps Bernie & Co. have brought down at once…I can't remember how many were in the first book at the end. Right now there are four, is that right?

    Wow, C Harris, I'm really bad with keeping track of the story at times, without re-reading. Two perps on the floor, Kelo ready to go down with the Chet/Iggy team. Portia keeps kicking the perps on the floor and telling them to "zip it!" I've lost count.

    On another subject…Somewhere I read or was told that the tail wagging isn't always that positive. I adopted a wayward Chihuahua that would wag his tail, all friendly looking, and then bite you a whole Band-Aids box worth. For Tiny the Terrible Chihuahua, the tail wagging was an uncontrollable response when he was about to bite you into burger meat. Weird.
