Leap Before You Look



by Tally-Ho and Sally-Forth, the dogs in the Threadville Mystery series by Janet Bolin

Tally-Ho: How come we’re posting today? We always bark on the 29th.

Sally-Forth: It has something to do with it not being leap year.

Tally-Ho: (scratches his ear) What? I leap every day.

Sally-Forth: Me, too!

Tally-Ho: Not very high.

Sally-Forth: Do so. Hey, what’s that picture? Are we starring in a new adventure?

Tally-Ho: That’s not us on the cover. I’m getting worried. We were on the cover of Threaded for Trouble.

Sally-Forth: Those are cats! What are they doing there?

Tally-Ho: Cats? Now I’m really worried.

Sally-Forth and Tally-Ho are Willow’s rescued dogs.  Have you ever rescued animals?

You can find out how two kittens strayed into Willow’s yard in the third Threadville Mystery, THREAD AND BURIED, coming out June 4, 2013! Pre-order THREAD AND BURIED from any bookstore or from these booksellers.

Janet Bolin’s first Threadville Mystery, DIRE THREADS, was nominated for both an Agatha Award for Best First novel and for the Bloody Words Light Mystery Award (the Bony Blithe.) The second in the series, with Sally and Tally peeking out the door at another cat, is THREADED FOR TROUBLE.

    1. We're always a little scared when a new book is coming out. We hear this is something that will happen to us--and to our human servant, Willow--around the time of the summer solstice...

    1. And we love pet rescuers! Without them, our tale wouldn't have had a happy ending...

    1. Tally-Ho: I wonder if those cats would run if I chased them.
      Saly-Forth: Bad brother! We don't chase other animals. We herd them.

  4. Live with rescued dogs now and have had rescued dogs for over 15 years. It is a good way to make a friend for life.

    1. And we're sure your dogs are as grateful to you for rescuing them as we are to Willow!

  5. You aren't going to like this but we have had rescued cats a few times over the years. Only one rescued puppy, but he was a great friend while he was alive, but so were the cats. Give the cats a chance, our great Toby the dog liked our cats, they were buddies.

    1. Oh, and Toby thought the cat's food was better than his so he helped himself. He was funny that way. I miss Toby. He was such a happy-go-lucky type.

  6. I've rescued a little canary one year, which was flying in the street. Only to "loose" him a year later, when the neighbours cat jumped on its cage, and send it to the floor, where it broke open.
