A great dog narrator! Here's my favorite quote:

" I gazed at her in the light that spilled form the convenience store. A sad story, I knew that - and I sure as hell wouldn't want to end up in any pound myself - but still, I loved...well, just about everything, the whole deal." This dog is joyous.

What I disliked: the convention of hard-boiled detectives that celebrating means killing a couple of bottles of scotch with your buddy. Our lives are tilted in directions hinted at by our shared imaginations. How shall we celebrate? Imagine for us another way.
