Dog Duty

PULP FICTION DOGGIE STYLE

Meet Author Bobby D. Lux

DOG DUTY Book Party!

Tues July 21st @ 7pm

  Hey! You! You like dogs? You like books? You like Bobby? Unless you're a moron, you like at least two of those, so here's the deal -- I'm having a release party/reading/signing of   Dog Duty  . Consider yourself invited, friend/Facebook user!    July 21st at 7:00pm at Gatsby Books in Long Beach -- 5535 E. Spring St., Long Beach, CA. It's in the center at the northeast corner of Bellflower and Spring.     What's Dog Duty? It's a book that I wrote. A crime novel set in the world of talking dogs and the canine underworld. And it's not for kids either. Kind of interesting, right?    And honestly, I think you should go. It's Tuesday night, so traffic won't be awful and there's nothing really good on TV. Plus, I'm a pretty good reader. I do voices and everything. I guarantee at least one laugh.

   Dog Duty tells the tale (or "tail?") of Fritz, a German Shepherd who was once the top dog of the Grand City Police Department - literally. There's police dogs and then there's Fritz. A true dog's dog. A dog neither afraid nor jaded by the streets he patrols and the criminals he chases. But all that changes in a moment. On another routine late-night foot pursuit, Fritz is confronted by Clay, an ex-military Rottweiler custom built with one-syllable efficiency. Bite. Maim. Kill. Fritz' injuries force him into a retirement of backyard boredom, surrounded by suburbanite hounds of all shapes and sizes. That won't do for a dog like Fritz. There's a reason why you don't see retired K-9 dogs laying around. Fritz narrates his quest for revenge and redemption in this adventure that takes him through the seedy canine underworld of cat-races, underground clubs, back alleys, and dog parks. Along the way, he encounters criminals of all breeds, derelict mutts, beauty queens, and a hotshot young K-9 hungry for publicity. At the end of that road is where Fritz will find Clay. That's the only way Fritz will ever get his life back.
