We Almost Have A Winner! (But Close Enough)


January 19th, 2010 Posted 7:58 am

Bernie says there are at least one hundred billion galaxies in the universe, and if that’s what he says I believe it. What it means is anybody’s guess. But that’s the only question Rebecca Rice and Megan, in combo, missed on the pop quiz, part two, and who cares, anyway? Did I make a rule about no combos? Or any other rule at all? So if each of them will send a mailing address to, a copy of Thereby Hangs A Tail, signed by Spencer Quinn and stamped by me, Chet, will be on its way.

Note from Admin: We’re working on the business card distribution idea. (Card appears on January 16th post.)  Also, everyone here is pulling for Cosmo.


MLK + Pop Quiz (Part Two)


January 18th, 2010 Posted 9:50 am

“The content of their character,” Bernie says. “Can we ever get to that?” He scratches between my ears, just so. Turns out my ears don’t exactly match. Didn’t know that until someone mentioned it, possibly in Dog On It, or maybe Thereby Hangs A Tail, hard to keep it all straight. But that’s not the point. The point is – so what if my ears don’t match?

Here’s part two of the quiz. Winner gets a copy of Thereby Hangs A Tail, signed by Spencer Quinn and stamped by me, Chet.

1. Who was Bernie’s favorite boxer?

2. Who is the Pepsi guy in Coke country?

3. What hides the safe in Bernie’s office? Bonus: What is its thematic significance?

4. According to Bernie, how many galaxies are in the universe?

5. Write a sentence or two on the difference between Princess and Babycakes.

Pencils down!


We Have A Winner!

Congratulations to Tiffany for her perfect score on yesterday’s pop quiz (part one). If she would please email her mailing addess to her copy of Thereby Hangs A Tail, signed by Spencer Quinn and stamped by Chet will be on its way.

Honorable mention to Lisa Trotter. Is there any reason she shouldn’t have a prize, too? Not that Chet can come up with. So if she too will kindly do the email thing, a signed and stamped copy will be coming her way as well.

Also, according to Admin who has been in contact with the publisher, Thereby Hangs A Tail, based on just on its partial first week, will appear on the New York Times extended fiction list at #25 on Sunday 1/24. Everyone here at chetthedog thanks Chet’s readers very very much.


No Post Today

Why no post? Because we’re going Christmas shopping. “We’re really behind the eight ball, Chet,” Bernie said.

Uh-oh. Once – the very day we got paid for solving the Messerschmidt case, in fact – Bernie got into a pool game with a little old guy who turned out to be an expert. If that happens today look out!
