Happy Early Halloween!

by Carrie Kennersly, veterinary technician and owner of an adjoining barkery and bakery, whose adventures are memorialized in the Barkery & Biscuits Mysteries by Linda O. Johnston

Happy October, everyone.  Halloween is fast approaching.  And as you know, I've developed some pretty healthy dog treats that I sell in my Barkery--right next door to my bakery, Icing on the Cake. 

My suggestion?  Have dog treats available for those who stop at your house trick-or-treating on Halloween night.  They probably won't have their dogs along, but they'll head home with their kiddy treats soon, so why not have things available for their beloved pets at home?

Fortunately for me, there have been no more murders lately in Knobcone Heights, my wonderful town.  In case you're not aware of it, I've solved three murders recently, though not all at once.  The most recent was described in a book called Bad to the Bone, and the others also were recounted in books: Bite the Biscuit and To Catch a Treat.  And you know what?  I have a feeling there'll be more--not that I ever set out to become a detective.  But I always like to have justice served, especially when it's my friends, or myself, who are unjustly accused.

Enjoy your Halloween!


  1. Adding these to my TBR, thank you for sharing. =)

    1. Great! Hope you enjoy them. It makes my solving those crimes even more worthwhile! And have a Happy Halloween.

  2. That's a good idea to have dog treats for Trick or Treaters.

  3. Pets are family too, even if they don't go trick-or-treating!
