Afraid to start fifth grade at her new school, 10-year-old Cassidy sneaks down to the park to look for Jo-Jo, her homeless friend living under the bridge with her sister, the girl she met this past summer. However, when Cassidy arrives, she finds their camp is abandoned and her search for answers leads only to purple-stained clues. Cassidy finds the weekend's concert ticket with purple smudges, a whimpering puppy with a wild mane of fur dyed in two shades of purple, and Jo-Jo's blanket with purple stains.
Where is Jo-Jo when she needs her most? Will she ever see her again? Where did this puppy come from and why is it in Jo-Jo's only blanket? Does the concert ticket offer any clues to their sudden disappearance? Find out in Purple-plexed, Case File 11, Bow Wow Detectives®
Today I took Sam with me on a field day on my outdoor beat. Sam is a beautiful Border Collie who lives with three Greyhounds that are rescues. Sam is going to be the featured dog hero in a book series under my Bow Wow Detectives® imprint. I'll announce the title of that series at a later time.
We hiked to the river, and Sam helped me solve a couple little mysteries in our time outdoors today. Sam seemed to enjoy our time sitting by the river watching the river flowing by, listening to the sounds of the blue jays, a passing eagle, and the sounds of all the other birds.
Sam was with me to help discover eagle nest nine, one I wrote into my journal as a new nest today. Not much activity going on for such a warm January day in Minnesota!
Sam and I arrived at another of my stops and found 18 Trumpeter Swans feeding in the open slough, the count has more than doubled since the January 2. The young gray cygnet, seems to be a loner, doesn't hang out with the other swans at all and that makes me curious as to why he drifts away? Last night he remained behind with his duck companions, while the two adults flew off to another slough at sundown. He is surrounded by mallards that stay close, and feed off plants he drops in the water, but he doesn't seem to mind feeding them. He preens with them, he swims with them, he camps with them. I'm calling him Lonan.
