Are you sick of all those mysteries series which feature that snotty feline breed? Are you a canine lover like me? Well if so, then make way for Randolph! He's a fully cognizantif a little pudgyBlack Labrador dog with a taste for fine literature and a nose for crime. He and his owner, Harry, have found themselves in the middle of a string of murders. If Randolph is going to help Harry steer clear of trouble, he must find a way to communicate everything that his nose is telling him. The solution will crack you up!

I enjoyed this cute new cozy mystery series which prominently features a dog instead of the usual cat. Randolph is a thinkingthough not necessarily talkingdog, and the story is written from his first person point of view. This took a few seconds to get used to, being inside the head of a dog, but once there and settled it, I found it quite comfy. :P This is the first book of the Bull Moose Dog Run Mystery Series, and I look forward to reading more about Randolph and Harry in future books.

If you like dogs and murder mysteries, and humor, you will like this book. I had several laugh outloud moments with this story of a very smart Lab solving a murder without his owner knowing he did it.

The sleuth is a sentient dog, Randolph, in NYC who communicates with his owner via the owner's favorite cereal, Alpha-Bits. He doesn't speak or dial the phone (as Shirley Rousseau Murphy's cats do). He reads... mostly classic literature and poetry. As you can tell by the cover, if he were a real dog, he would be in one of those English hunting dog paintings. Good plot, good characters, good cozy.

This book disappointed me. The dog seemed a smug know-it-all that throws out rambling quotes that seem only to appear well-read. I guess he grew on me a little better as the book went on and it was a good mystery that kept me reading, but I was very disappointed in the end with things left unanswered. I guess it was left open for a sequel, but I don't think I care to read another whole book with these characters.

I am a dog person, I love them, and pretty much a book written from the dog's perspective will always get my attention, unfortunately this book did not hold my attention, I could put it down, and did quite often, never being excited to pick it back up and read... so I gave up on it decided to swap it. I had high hopes.

My husband and I both loved this book about a classy, intelligent and sophisticated labrador who helps his human solve a murder. This book will make the reader laugh out loud. The book is very well-written and captivating. Also, don't worry about your children being attracted to the cover and reading it - it's "clean" enough!
