The story behind the story

I love to read detective stories. Especially in winter, when you can ignore the snowstorm outside, sit comfortably in the armchair with a cup of cocoa or milk and a new detective story.

I also have a friend. He is a dachshund with sharp mind and sense. When something is lost, he can find it in no time! A real detective. My friend’s name is Holmes. And these are his stories, which he loves to tell, and I love to listen.

Characters


Dachshund Holmes

Dachshund Holmes is a small but fast dog starting his service in police and already famous for solving a huge case about the stolen diamonds of the countess N… He is extremely clever and logical. Loves to read detective stories by the famous writer Cunning Fox. If he is not investigating, he is reading, for what was even mocked by his superior. Never pays attention to the mocks though, but this is the only thing he pays no attention to. The dachshund is highly reliable, he hears and notices everything. Moreover, his sense of smell is legendary! Possesses a strange habit to scratch his paws when he senses the coming of a new case.
