Random Amazon Review We Like


June 18th, 2014 Posted 8:12 am

5.0 out of 5 stars I absolutely LOVE CHET (and Bernie) and I feel that you will, too! I rate this series a #10 !!,June 14, 2014.

Louise Mustain on Dog On It:

I was introduced to this ‘detective pair’ by my local librarian. I enjoyed it so much that I then contacted Amazon and purchased the entire series.
If you like dogs, especially ones who help solve crimes, you’ll LOVE this thoroughly satisfying adventure as narrated through the dog’s eyes. Chet isn’t your average detective, for sure. (He’s actually a K-9 ‘drop-out’). But you’ll find that he and his cash flow challenged owner/partner, Bernie, an endearing pair whose adventures keep you turning the pages late into the night!!
I recommend starting this series by reading : A CAT WAS INVOLVED. It fills in the ‘blanks’ of Chet’s life before his introduction to Bernie in DOG ON IT. In reality, DOG ON IT is actually #2 in this charming and highly entertaining series.
I now own all seven of this series and totally enjoy them. I’m sure that you will, too.

“Chet – let’s get a move on, buddy.”

Chet? That was me, and getting a move on was my kind of thing. Plus here at K-9 School they were big fans of me coming when my name was called – pretty soon after, in fact, if you wanted a treat. Which I always did. But at this particular moment, I had just lifted my leg, and once started in on something like that, there’s really no stopping till it’s over, as you probably know. I’m not referring to the brief leg lift for marking purposes, over and done with in a flash. This was the other kind, much longer lasting, and often a peaceful break in the day, where the mind can wander in a pleasant sort of –


I finished up and trotted over to Officer Bobby Torres. Bobby gave me a funny look. I gave him a funny look back. His eyes, dark and watchful, narrowed a bit, and he wrote something on his clipboard. I yawned. Bobby opened the back door of his black-and-white.

“In,” he said.

“I believe some readers who download A Cat Was Involved or The Iggy Chronicles, Volume 1 think they’re getting a novel,” Spence says.

“But doesn’t it say right on them that  they’re short stories?” Admin says. “And isn’t the price – 99 cents – a dead giveaway?”

“Nevertheless – a gentle reminder that they are short stories, somewhere between 7500 and 10500 words as I recall.”


Welcome Sophie.

I hopped in. Butch, my K-9 School pal, was already there, taking up most of the space. I nudged him over toward his side. Butch was one huge dude, everything about him enormous – excepting his eyes which were tiny and dust-colored – and took a lot of nudging. No problem – I’m a good nudger. But hey! So was Butch, which I found out pronto from how he nudged me back. Then there was nothing to do but nudge him again, even harder. And what did he do? Renudged me, still harder. My pal Butch was turning out to be more fun than I’d thought. I gathered my strength, possibly tearing the seat cover with one of my back claws, just to judge from the sound, and gave Butch a nudge he wouldn’t be forgetting anytime soon. Surprise: Butch seemed to forget it immediately, gathering his own strength – what was that? another ripping sound? – and –

Bobby pounded on the steel grill separating front from back in the cruiser. “Knock it the hell off, you two!” he yelled. “Lookin’ to flunk out of the program right this goddamn second? Cause I’ll do it in a heartbeat.”

Whatever that was didn’t sound good. Butch and I knocked it off and lay low, growling at each other from time to time, but real quiet, so Bobby couldn’t hear.
