This is the second Chet and Bernie mystery, about a P.I. and his dog, who form a team to investigate crimes. The books are narrated by the dog, Chet, which sounds like it could be very "cutesy" but actually is really well-done and laugh-out-loud funny, if you're a dog person. I love the way the author captures the personality of the dog. For example, he'll be in the middle of telling about something, and then, he'll digress into seeing a cat, and how he doesn't like cats, etc.! Very light murder mystery--not very violent either. This one focuses on the dog show world--kidnapping of both a show dog and its owner, done in a very comic way.

Good light summer reading, especially for dog people.
