This is the second book in this series, and a considerable improvement over the first. I had a couple of laugh out loud moments while reading this book, whereas the first book was cute but not funny and the first mystery wasn't one. This book keeps you guessing as to who, how many, and how bad re the bad guys, and the style of story-as-told-by-dog has gotten much better. As Chet relates the tale to you, you can start to see into his doggie ADHD, and understand how he flunked out of the academy and ended up with Bernie. Bernie is the loser everybody really wants to be a winner, an honest guy, a man with honor, a human who really loves his dog and his kid. The plot is better in this second installation, characters are more developed, and we get more history on the dynamic duo who are Chet and Bernie. Chhhhhe..e..e..e..etttttt?!

A disappointment

Why, does Chet have to cuss? Bernie and Chet have developed real potty mouths, which I find unnessary.

    I Feel Cheated

    This franchise certainly proved to be a one hit wonder. In the follow up to a very original and offbeat book, this one wanders much like its starring characters, rather pointlessly out in the desert for far too long. There is really no character development and even Chet seems deflated and lackluster. By the time you suffer through a couple hundred pages of truly pointless wandering in the desert with little to show for it, you just no longer even care about the outcome.
    An empty waste! I want a refund.
