Christmas in Savannah...dog style

Bruce Willis here...the canine version of BW...from the Consignment Shop mysteries by Duffy Brown.

I’m counting down the days till Christmas here in Savannah. I can almost taste those yummy table treats now. Turkey here I come!! Let me tell you there is nothing better than a Southern cooked turkey.

The whole house smells like heaven and the real treat is the pumpkin pie. I don’t get the pie part but did you know that pumpkin is good for dogs!! When Auntie KiKi makes the pies she always puts aside a scoop for me.
 
It’s been one heck of a year with dog-mamma Reagan ending up in the swamp with the alligators and dog-daddy Walker on the run for killing some guy found dead in a bathtub. But now that things are back to normal they suddenly aren’t again.

In Savannah there are two things guaranteed to get folks talking...weddings and funerals. Reagan’s agreed to marry Walker so that’s good and we’ll be one happy family. And our neighbors, Annie Fritz and Elsie Abbot, have stepped up their business as professional mourners to assure one and all a memorable send off.

Okay, all this seems like a good plan except now bodies are going missing, the sisters are accused of knocking off people for profit and Reagan needs to find the killer to save our friends. And as if that’s not enough her wedding plans are getting hijacked by everyone with an opinion. Fuchsia bridesmaid dresses? Gold shoes? Biscuits and gravy for the reception? They want me to wear a doggie tux and be the ring bearer. It’s enough to scare a dog half to death.

I tell you this is one heck of a way to end a year with bodies popping up where you least expect them to be and crazy wedding plans.

This is crazy Christmas in Savannah, so what’s going on for Christmas in your neck of the woods? Are the lights up? Presents wrapped? I sure hope there aren’t any dead bodies under your tree. What ever happens have a howling great Christmas.
