The first book in the Chet and Bernie mystery series. Chet is a dog. Bernie is a divorced PI who is asked to look into a missing teen case. Her mother is worried as it is not her daughter's type of behavior. Her father is a jerk whose life is a house of cards. Bernie does not like the smell he's getting on the case, so he decides he has to find the girl. Chet is there is ride shot gun. Can they find the girl?

I enjoyed this story. It is told completely from Chet's POV. It was fun as Chet loses his train of thought a lot but he remembers smells. I cannot wait to hear some of Chet's stories about Bernie and past cases and past events in their lives. Kudos to Mr. Quinn for telling us all through Chet's eyes. That cannot have been easy. It makes it more difficult to solve the mystery although I did have part of it figured out before the explanation. Well, at least, the why. I did think a different reason was part of it though.

I loved Chet. I plan on reading the rest of the series. ( )

Although I personally don't like reading a book from a dog's point of view with all straying distractions, the dogs view is very well represented. He's descriptive, very dog-like in his thoughts generally but I bit too humanized.
The author has obviously spent a lot of time thinking about thongs from his dogs perspectve I guess. He does a good job explaining this and describing the settings. ( )

Dog On It
(Chet and Bernie. Mystery #1)
By Spencer Quinn
I am hooked already on these two characters! The story is mostly told by the dog, Chet. The mystery is unpredictable and it has great characters! Realistic dialogue and when Chet is explaining his view it's great!
I love the unique telling the story from the point of view from Chet the dog. The great characters and plot! Wonderful story! ( )

I love Chet as the narrator of the book, seeing everything from his viewpoint. ( )

An exciting new mystery series debuts with this first Chet and Bernie novel. Chet the Jet is a dog who failed K-9 school (cats in the open country played a role in his demise), but now he is a dedicated PI and works with Bernie, owner of the Little Detective Agency. The story is told entirely from Chet’s point of view, which will delight dog-loving mystery readers, but the book is also an excellent PI tale, dogs aside, as Chet and Bernie investigate the disappearance of a teenage girl whose developer dad may be up to no good. Chet may not understand things like maps (he doesn’t need them, as he can sniff his way home), but he is a great sleuth who finds the girl and solves the case. The always upbeat Chet may well be one of the most appealing new detectives on the block, but conscientious, kind, and environmentally aware Bernie is a close runner-up. Excellent and fully fleshed primary and secondary characters, a consistently doggy view of the world, and a sprightly pace make this a not-to-be-missed debut. Essential for all mystery collections and for dog lovers everywhere.

Set in the Valley of an unnamed Western state, Quinn's winning debut introduces one smart canine detective and his partner, PI Bernie Little of the Little Detective Agency, who's pretty quick on the uptake himself. Chet, a lively mongrel with one white ear and one black ear, serves as the book's narrator, communicating with Bert via doggy methods that verge on the telepathic (I wagged my tail, that quick one-two wag meaning yes, not the over-the-top one that wags itself and can mean lots of things). Wealthy divorcée Cynthia Chambliss hires Bernie, a former cop, to find her missing 15-year-old daughter, Madison, whose father is a real estate developer who smells suspiciously of cat. (Chet's keen sense of smell comes in handy.) When Madison reappears and disappears again, her dad says she's just a runaway, though Bernie thinks otherwise. Chet must use all his superdog tricks to extricate Bernie from a mighty tight fix in a climax that fans of classic mysteries are sure to appreciate.

I could smell him--or rather the booze on his breath--before he even opened the door, but my sense of smell is pretty good, probably better than yours.
