A few years ago for NaNoWriMo I decided to try to write a mystery with the main characters based on my dogs. I know. But I promise you it ended up being a lot less cute than it sounds. And I never once acknowledge that any of them are animals. This is not Wind in the Willows. This is Raymond Chandler as told by a dog that believes humans are a perfectly acceptable species if slightly deficient in certain aspects. Here's the description.
"Jango Champelli retired to the suburbs and set up a private investigative agency with her younger partner Sawyer Jarule in order to get away from the hectic life and dangers of the secret Agency she once worked for. But sometimes you can’t get away from your past and Jango and Sawyer’s biggest case runs deeper and more dangerous than either of them could have expected. Join these two investigators as they try to crack the case of the Grey Man and the other creatures of the underworld that surround them."
