Dog On It is a hugely entertaining book about two private detectives one of whom is a dog. Meet the storyâ€™s narrator Chet, a K9 school drop-out rescued by Bernie Little owner of the Little Detective Agency. Chet will tell you that he almost made it through his final test at the police academy but something happened â€“ something he is a little fuzzy on except there may have been a cat involved. Thatâ€™s OK though because now Chet helps Bernie nab all kinds of â€śperpsâ€ť. The plot involves a missing teen named Madison. Bernie, recently divorced and currently a little down on his luck, tells Madisonâ€™s frantic mother that they will take the case and find her daughter.
All dog lovers will recognize Chet who adores his partner unconditionally, who knows how to find happiness from the all little things in life and who will always find the Cheerios that have spilled under the kitchen table. Chetâ€™s attempts to try and puzzle out the meanings of various â€śhumanâ€ť expressions and following his stream of consciousness as thoughts come and go are often hilarious.
This is the first book in the series by Cape Cod author Spencer Quinn and it is a delight to read.
