Ellie and Viv head to the chi-chi Hamptons for the wedding of Viv's sister Arlene. The groom is late for the pre-wedding party....and is found dead. As the evidence piles up against the son of Arlene's housekeeper, Ellie is pulled out of vacation mode into investigating the murder. Stir in drugs, a mysterious hot man and Viv's family dynamics and you have the makings of some major drama as the case unfolds.
Keep writing, Judi!
In "Till Death Do Us Bark," the latest book in the Dog Walker mystery series, Ellie and Rudy are invited by BFF (and very bad driver) Vivian to attend a family wedding in the posh Hamptons. But before the bride--Viv's sister--can say her wedding vows, the groom is found dead, which does put a damper on the festivities. Suspects crop up all over the place, including some members of Viv's own family, a weird and grumpy group of wealthy artistic types.
Viv begs Ellie and Rudy to investigate and find out the truth about her almost-brother-in-law and why he died. Of course, Rudy has a distinct advantage because people will say anything in front of a dog, even reveal their darkest secrets.
Ellie and her canine sidekick are a formidable detective team. "Till Death Do Us Bark" is a fun read and a warning to all us dog lovers to be careful what we talk about in front of our pups!

Ellie, Rudy, and Viv were in the Hamptons for Viv's sister's wedding, so we were able to leave Manhattan and head off to the beach in this installment of the dog walker series. There were several interesting human characters to meet and observe, and an African gray parrot, named Myron, who stole the show. He would imitate noises and people's comments, along with singing songs that were prompted by words in the conversations he overheard at the house. Because of these abilities, he was very helpful in the murder case. Bringing Myron in as a main character was sheer genius, and the combination of his antics and Rudy's smart alecky remarks made this book a delight to read. This book is now combined with "Heir of the Dog" as my favorites, although the remaining books are not far behind.
The investigation turns up family drama and an epidemic of drug use among the well-to-do. Rudy and Tink (a.k.a. Mr. T) are a riot as usual and they are joined by a parrot who heard more than he should have in helping Ellie with the case.
Enjoyed the banter between the dogs and Ellie (who can hear their thoughts) and found the addition of a new mysterious man who seems to have more than a professional interest in Ellie interesting. Don't forget to check out her other books in the Dog Walker Mystery series as well.
1. never ever feed chocolate to any bird, it is a bird poison. with the amount of chocolate stuffed into the parrot, it should have died in the middle of the book
2. i was annoyed at the disparaging comments about the parrot. the African Grey, is one of the most intellingent of parrots, an IQ comparable to a preschool child. they do not aimlessly repeat words. they are cognitavely intact intelligent animals.
3. the characters were annoying and the human conversations lacking in any intelligence
