Arf. Er, Hi, Again.
by Biscuit, Carrie Kennersly's dog in the Barkery & Biscuits Mysteries by Linda O. Johnston
Hi, it's Biscuit again. I'm visiting Killer Characters more often now. I'm a dog, and I supposedly belong to Carrie Kennersly, the human who's the subject of the Barkery & Biscuits Mysteries. What's the truth? She belongs to me. She takes care of me, doesn't she? She lets me sample the good treats she sells in her store she calls Barkery & Biscuits, where she and her helpers bake all sorts of good dog treats. And she's explained to me why she won't give me stuff from her other store next door, Icing on the Cake, since some of the treats she sells there for people could hurt me. Stuff made from chocolate, whatever that is, for example.
Lots of her helpers and friends are nice to me, too. Especially Dr. Reed Storme, who's not only just a nice human guy but also a veterinarian who works at the Knobcone Veterinary Clinic, where Carrie's also a part time veterinary technician. Vets and veterinary technicians? They take care of dogs, like me.
The thing is, I'm supposed to at least pretend to obey Carrie's orders--which I often do, like when she tells me to sit or stay or beg. And though she does listen to me a lot when it comes to giving treats and all, I still can't help worrying about her.
Why? Because Carrie's gotten into solving human murders. When people get killed in our town of
Heights, Carrie's jumping in and figuring out who did it, darn her. Sure, it's often her friends who are accused
of doing it and she needs to find out the truth to help them. Especially most recently, when Dr. Reed
Storme was considered by the police to be the main suspect, or so Carrie told
me. I didn't believe he did it, and
neither did his dog Hugo, who's my friend. Knobcone
Anyway, Carrie told me that whole story was told about in a book called Pick and Chews, the most recent Barkery & Biscuits Mystery. She hasn't started reading the book to me, which is a disappointment since I can't read. But you can read it...
PICK AND CHEWS, the fourth Barkery & Biscuits Mystery by Linda O. Johnston, was a May 2018 release from Midnight Ink.
