Where Is Harry?

“Here’s a case from Australia,” Bernie says. “Happened at the Royal Adelaide Dog Show – starting to remind you of anything, Chet?”

You bet. We know a waitress named Adelaide, a great waitress who works at Max’s Memphis Ribs. I stand up, ready to go.

“Kylie Sunman was there with her prize-winning entrant, Harry, a chihuahua.” Chihuahua? Oh, brother. “She was ten meters away from him toileting other dogs – that’s the expression she uses – and when she looked up Harry was gone. It was a snatch, Chet. Just like Princess.”

So we’re going to Max’s Memphis Ribs or not?

“Kylie Sunman is offering five grand for Harry’s safe return.”

I don’t know what five grand is, exactly, just that it’s a lot. I do know about Australia from Animal Planet – kangaroos! – but how far is it? Can we drive? I watch Bernie. He turns the page of the newspaper, sips his coffee. Are we going to Australia? Max’s Memphis Ribs? Anywhere?

The Back Of My Mind

Something’s nagging at the back of my mind – that ever happen to you? I’m so close to remembering! Right now we’re watching tennis on TV, me and Bernie, tennis from Australia, he says. Is that in the Valley? The Valley goes on practically forever. I don’t get tennis at all, but tennis balls are another story. Love ’em, and love playing fetch. I’m watching the ball go back and forth. In my younger days I might have started barking, excited by the idea of the ball popping out of the screen so I could snap it up. Now I know better.

“Chet! What are you barking about?”
