When a neighbor's human is found dead, however, Taser gets it in his head that his own humans won't be happy until the murder is solved. Therefore he sets out, in his own doggy way, to do just that. This novel is a lot of fun - viewing humans from a dog's perspective is entertaining in itself, but to see those dogs attempt to tackle human problems to keep their world from changing, that is unique. Taser, who is telling the story, and Meatloaf are both loveable Labs and their human Robert should be commended for how well he treats them.
I love Meatloaf's specism rants and the cast of characters is well-rounded with a number of other dogs in the neighborhood. The backstories provided serve the story well as their adventure plays out. Apr 29, Pauline Tilbe rated it it was amazing. I had this book on my Kindle for a short while before actually reading it. If I had known what a treasure it was, I would have read it sooner.
Told by a black Lab rescue dog, this mystery will entertain you thoroughly. Taser and Meatloaf have it made until their routine is disrupted by crime in their neighborhood. Taser's curiosity is tweaked by the mystery but it's the fear of losing his human that propels him into danger while trying to solve the mystery and save his home. Stories told from a I had this book on my Kindle for a short while before actually reading it.
Stories told from a dog's perspective are not always so well written. Brandon did an amazing job getting the details right.
I double dog dare you to read this and not laugh out loud at their antics! Jul 04, Mercedes rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved this book! I've read a Chet and Bernie book as well as a Rayne Stockton spelling? I didn't like either of those like I liked this book. Taser and Meatloaf are just plain funny and the story kept me reading late late into the next morning. All the other dogs in the pack were awesome too.
I think this is a delightful read and I didn't see the killer reveal coming. There were a couple scenes that made my heart go out when life wasn't all peaches and cream for Taser or Meatloaf.
I'm g I loved this book! I'm glad this author was brave enough to tackle some of the cruelty issues in our world. He wove them into these boys' life story very well. This is a great read, I highly recommend.
May 01, Marti rated it liked it. Through the first half or so of this book, I found myself getting sleepy. I'm still recovering from cancer treatment but still this sleepiness while reading mostly happens to me now when I'm bored. The 3 stars instead of fewer is because the story line picked up fairly well in the second half.
This is the story of a murder as investigated by a group of dogs in an upscale Phoenix neighborhood. The main character, Taser, gets more interesting in the second half as well. As with most of the Amazon Through the first half or so of this book, I found myself getting sleepy. As with most of the Amazon free downloads, there were several typos, but not as many in some other books I have read recently.
I would recommend this book in a lukewarm sort of way. Aug 07, Jeanne Miller rated it it was amazing. I've read the entire Howl series and I just can't get enough of these wonderful dogs, there friends in the neighborhood, even a few unexpected friends in the desert for the first few books.
The two main dogs personalities are so very different, but they play off each other wonderfully. When I read these books, I got lost into a very interesting world of crime solving Labs. It's nice to read animal books where the pets are the main focal point and the humans are more in the background.

I love animal mysteries when they are told from the perspective of the animal.

And their neighbor has been murdered.
Fearing their people are going to move away and leave them at the pound, Taser convinces the neighbor dogs to try and solve the crime. It is fun telling the story from the POV of Taser and figure out in dog ways - how to overcome obstacles to their investigations. Also to see the humans from their point of view. And their big 'reveal' scene ala Miss Marple was a hoot. Feb 12, Christine rated it did not like it Shelves: This book was not really what I expected at all. Overall the story-line was okay, and there were some parts that I did enjoy such as the ending , but the way the dogs "talked" I found rather hokey.
I could have risen it up to two stars if the story had been edited at all. There were constant grammar errors throughout the story, and even the main character's names were misspelled more than once. I really would not recommend this book unless you get it for free and have some time to kill. May 17, Kristy McRae rated it liked it. This was a fun mystery, with a very cool canine narrator. I enjoyed all the dog characters, and their solving of the mystery. But I'd definitely check out more with these characters--the plot was well-developed, and the story line was entertaining.

Jul 01, Isabella rated it really liked it. It's nice to see dogs getting a chance - especially since they have one severe limitation that cats don't - they're generally trapped inside their yards.
I think maybe I should have read that one as I just found it strange that the dogs were talking about "mounters" and "mountees" May 05, Beatrice rated it liked it Shelves: I very much enjoyed this story. Jun 07, Michelle rated it liked it. Cute and fairly interesting mystery, but since this is an e book, it was hindered by horrible editing and typography issues. Cute and simple, but I'm glad I didn't pay a lot for it. Jun 02, Tammy rated it liked it.
