It’s Christmas time in the Valley. Chet and Bernie of the Little Detective Agency, Little being Bernie’s last name, Chet being the dog, could use another job. Chet is puzzled when Bernie turns down work and instead, passes the job to another PI, Victor. Chet and Bernie are action oriented, Chet being the one who grabs the perp’s pants leg and hangs on, Bernie being the smartest guy in the room. Victor is a better researcher than an active PI, so it makes sense for him to take the job.

However, as he grew older he developed some health problems which were difficult for the family because, with busy schedules, they had trouble handling his schedule of medications. In addition, they had a baby, and when the baby got more attention than Hartigan, the Scottie became quite jealous. So, when he bit the baby, the parents were ready to have him euthanized.

Andy Carpenter is a semi-retired lawyer. That means he has enough money he doesn’t have to work and doesn’t want to, but cases do show up and he’s either intrigued enough to take the case or his wife Laurie thinks he should which is the same thing.
