I have no idea what was in my backyard at 5 this morning, but whatever it was freaked my poor pup Casper. I turned on the yard lights, and put Junebug and Casper out to do their business like I always do, and usually it’s not a big deal. This morning though, the excitement was a level 8.  There was one huge YIPE, then several fierce barks. I ran out quick to save my babies, but when I got out there, there was nothing. Since Casper is an all white pup, it was easy to see that he was not harmed, and a quick survey of the yard revealed nothing. It very well could have been Casper was spooked by Junebug and when he got all excited she joined in. That happens daily. When I still had Ellie Mae and Jethro, my two large pups, I never had a fear of letting them out in the yard. They could handle just about any wild animal they can across. In our yard that wasn’t much. Rats, opossums, and an occasional cat. With my two pups whose combined weight doesn’t equal that of my cat’s weight, I am a bit more cautious. Heck.. a large bird could fly off with my babies pretty easily. Hmm… do I get a large dog to protect my small dogs?

And before Hughes died, he incurred the wrath of none other than Sir Duncan Godington, longtime nemesis of both CS Hetheridge and DS Paul Bhar.

Hetheridge, Kate, and Bhar find themselves under tremendous pressure to uncover the killer as fast as possible. Have Scotland Yard and Downing Street lost confidence in Hetheridge?
