Bernie's the human guy. He does the driving (a beat up Porsche that goes fast and makes really cool noises), the phone work, and the heavy thinking. Chet's the dog guy. He always rides shotgun and he's in charge of any task that requires a superior sense of smell. Chet also tells the story, so sometimes bits of it go missing when Chet feels an overwhelming urge to chase something or gets too blissed out scratching behind his own ears.
Bernie and Chet are a perfect partnership. Chet, while cognizant of some of Bernie's shortcomings still thinks he's the smartest funniest human alive. Bernie, though he doesn't always get Chet's doggy communications recognizes his superiority as a dog and a friend.
And missing bits of the story due to a certain someone's need to bury a bone in the backyard is a small price to pay. Dog On It is a delightful romp, suitable for plane ride or beach or long winter's night. You'll read it in two sittings, and while you might not remember that much later(missing child, Russian mobsters, sexy lady reporter) you will be left wanting more.
