I am enjoying the adventures of Chet and Bernie. I'm starting the next book today. I really enjoy Chet's views on the life and his teamwork with Bernie. I'm glad I found this series.

These are well-crafted detective stories, from the perspective of the detective's dog. I own and love dogs and I am highly entertained by these

Great mystery. From the mind of our best friend. Chet always makes me smile and helps solve the crime.
Narration as always is great. Well matched.
The audio version is great because the reader puts so much "dog" into Chet, and is really good at sounding like the dog point of view.
Chet, "Curiosity killed the cat - don't know what that means, but curiosity must be good." I laughed for days over that line. There were a lot of memorable lines in this book, mostly on the part of Chet, but sometimes through Bernie.
This is one of his best. I really enjoyed it. He balances making the voices clearly different without being distracting.
The crime, the dog, the cat, the romance, the movies, the whole enchilada.
This is such a great series - solid mysteries and laugh-out-loud lines from the dog, Chet. I'll come back to these for a second listen, because there are details that add to the mystery that are easily missed on the first listen. This series is well constructed and executed,and the reader is wonderful. All in all, well worth the listen.
If you liked the others, and who wouldn't, or you love crime fiction and dogs, again who wouldn't, then you will love this series.
I love the characters and it is a series so read them in order.
I'm so glad they keep the same actor. I have had other series that switched, and while the next actor was good, I was already sold on the original.
Audible quality was great as usual, but on chapter, the actor came in slightly different in character, or the recording was done at a different time, and the actor had to warm up to the resonance of his character. He was able to fall in character quickly, but it was definitely obvious and jarring at first from the previous chapter.

Chet is delightful. Bernie is smart and pretty cool.
Together they figure out and fix a complex problem with roots well into the past. Along the way they find some romance.
Chet's chicken's may come home to roost (Chet is the dog, Bernie is the detective) and that is interesting as we so often think of dogs as having no personal life.
If you like a good detective story and you like animals, you'll like this. Chet narrates much of the book, responding and speaking as a dog and with a dog's perspective on the events his owner drags him through. I have read a few others of this series and find it delightful.
Chet's voice is so much like what I think my own dog would think and say. Even if you don't like dogs you'd like the book because the story is good.
I like that the story is told from the dog's point of view. But after listening to 4 of these books, the lines are getting redundant. This book didn't seem to have much of a plot, just more of the silly, but clever lines from the previous books.
Yeah, I still find them entertaining, but I couldn't tell you what this one was about.
I like listening to these books in particular - I like the way he does what the dog is thinking.
Spencer needs to add some more to his material - too much like the previous books.
Just love this series. This edition is traditional Chet & Bernie fare but always great listening. Narrator does a consistently wonderful job on the Chet voice and I can really relate to the dog characteristics. Chet reminds me of almost every dog I've had in my life. Highly recommend it.
Listened to all of them. Love his voice.
