It's an all-new case for Melanie: a husband, an eight-year-old son and, count them, five poodles. Finding a new, bigger house is at the top of her agenda. To add to the mayhem, Melanie has got the task of keeping an eye on her disconcertingly beautiful new neighbour, whose absent husband is nearly as worrisome as her seven wander outdoor cats. Melanie's poodles are constantly being provoked by the frisky felines. Melanie is not going to let all of the chaos in her life deter her from enrolling her dog Faith in obedience school. The South Avenue Obedience Club to be exact, which seems to be a fun challenge. Melanie is especially eager to bring faith to the group's program at the Winston Pumpernill Nursing Home. Obedience club member Paul Lennox initiated the outings to please his Great Aunt Mary and the other dog lovers at Winston Pumpernill. All is nice and good at Pumpernill, that is until Aunt Mary is tragically found suffocated during Melanie's first visit. Melanie's investigative pedigree quickly comes to light and the club members urge her to track the killer. Suspects, motives and opportunities are plentiful. Melanie simply has to sniff out the culprit - and watch her back.
