Dog On It: a Chet and Bernie Mystery by Spencer Quinn
There have been a lot of dog books on the bestseller list lately--The Story of Edgar Sawtelle and The Art of Racing in the Rain. This one tops the list. Chet is a police dog that didn't quite make it all the way through training (that dang cat!). And Bernie is an ex-cop who is now a private investigator with a dog helper. The two of them are off to figure out what happened to a teenage girl who has disappeared. Kidnapped? Who knows? But between the two of them, they'll solve the case. Both Chet and Bernie have a great sense of humor and the dog behavior details are hilarious.
