In his second outing, Doodle, that incorrigible but good-hearted labradoodle, still works as a bed bug dog for the boss, Josh Hunter of Hunter Bed Bug Detection.
Doodle likes to keep his relations with humans on a business basis. Do the job, get paid—in his case, with treats. So far so good, except when it comes to Molly, the boss’s ten year-old daughter. Somehow, Doodle wants to please her even when she doesn’t have treats. He can’t explain it, but that’s how it is.
His nose gets put to the test when Molly starts training him to find something very different from bed bugs in order to clear her best friend’s brother from drug charges. But then, during a practice for an important certification trial—one which will get the boss more “big time” jobs—Doodle fails to find two vials containing bed bugs. The boss worries that Molly’s training has ruined Doodle’s ability to do his job. Or that maybe he’s losing his sense of smell.
It takes all of Molly’s ingenuity and Doodle’s keen intelligence to sniff out the real villains and set things right again.
