Pets and Mysteries

Pets play a role in some mystery series.  Robert B. Parker's Spenser series had Pearl the Wonderdog, and Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series has Bob, the canine garbage can.  And, of course, there are tons of mysteries and even a whole series featuring cats. 

I got my first dog (actually, my first ever pet) in October 2011.  Her name is Bella, and she is an 11 year old Maltese.  She weighs 5.5 lbs and has 3 teeth (the remaining ones will be pulled out soon).  She's very timid, at times flatulent, and is only house-trained when it suits her. 

But, she's also very sweet, never makes a sound (I've even smuggled her in to libraries!), and she is very bouncy and licky.  Getting a dog was one of the best decisions I've ever made!!!

So, I may eventually have to write in a pet for Sasha Jackson.

  1. Bella is cute as the dickens but only 3 teeth? There must be a story behind your first pet being 10 years old when you got her. Most people would start with a puppy (who has all its teeth).
