The Adventures of Tooten and Ter: A Nose for Trouble


by Chris McCloskey

Terrance O’Connell is still teaching Tooten, a small service dog, new tricks. When fate closed the door on Tooten getting into Service Dog Academy, it opened another door to Tooten becoming a Canine Ambassador in the Helping Paws Progam. It also allowed Tooten and Ter to continue helping people find missing items. Captain Leroy Gonzalez, Ter’s foster dad, warns Ter about his occasional stunning lapses of solid judgment but Ter still manages to get involved in more mysteries with his seeing “breaks in the pattern.” Tooten is a willing accomplice. Together they solve mysteries in Boulder, New York, Seattle and Chicago.
