Welcome again to Book Blurb Friday.  If you’re a newbie, here’s the scoop so you understand what follows.  Please click HERE or click the tab under the blog header for details of the Book Blurb Friday meme.  This is the shortened, abridged version:

Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.

Below is this week’s “book cover,” offered for our creative blurbs by yours truly. On this very cold winter day, we have a summer pic.  My own blurb follows:

Deputy Dachshund
(150 words)
Meet Dieter, the canine superhero lauded by law enforcement and civic groups as the phenomenal Deputy Dachshund.
Dieter’s sensitive snout and love of the water have made him the golden boy of Lake Sniffenfetchit’s pollution control watchdog group, the Petrol Patrol. Every day, the Petrol Patrol cruises Lake Sniffenfetchit with Dieter in tow to sniff out those environmental enemies who dump unsafe petroleum toxins into the lake. The Harbor Police might not always snag the malodorous miscreants, but it is the rare polluter who can escape the dogged determination of this hardy hound, Deputy Dachshund.
Polluters beware: He’ll hunt you, hound you, and hold you accountable!
Share a day in the life of this diminutive hero of the environment, Deputy Dachshund! Read about his exploits and adventures as he tracks down the pollution perpetrators of Lake Sniffenfetchit. 
This book is a real doggy treat. You’ll have a tail-wagging good time!

This cracked me up, because the Dachshund in the picture is Special Agent McGee, one of my grand-dogs. Since I know him to be a total clown, this book blurb is really casting him against type. I suppose he’s a hero to those of us who love him, and he does adore the water. One of his favorite things to do is fetch a tennis ball thrown into the lake. He’s a better retriever than  my Labs!

To be sure that others can read your blurb, please put your name and link in Mr. Linky, below, if you are participating in Book Blurb Friday. If you have no blurb to share, please do not install a link. It will be treated as spam and removed. Thanks.
