LEMON DROP, drops off radar!

When last seen, Lemmie was walking the lonely road that only super heros and wondrous bat dogs walk, listening for any clues, as savage lizards watched and waited in the hot sun and a wicked wind beat down upon her. Although she twisted and twirled and tacked, against all doggie-odds, Lemmie sniffed out a bone, and its seductive perfume was luring her Eastern bound. Yes, the East is where she would find those smugglers. However, little did Lemmie know what would be waiting for her just beyond the golden horizon. The notorious Little Miss Firecracker and the most patriotic Miss Bosco!
What’s this? A special report, just in from our part-time sleuth, and part-time novelist, Moonshine the Man of Mystery, “Lemmie has fallen off the Zingertales’ radar, folks! Not hyde nor hair or even a little paw of Lemmie, the Wondrous Bat Dog, has been seen in the last 24 hours.”
We asked, Moonshine the Man of Mystery, to ney in on the perilous mission of Lemmie and here is what he had to say so far, “Lemmie’s situation is touch-and-go right now, due to the simple fact that the notorious Little Miss Firecracker and the most patriotic Miss Bosco are very complex and tricky villains that repeatedly plumb the depths of canine depravity to get what they want. You see, it’s not just past secrets they’re trying to hide. They’re awaiting a hush-hush shipment of the Youtan Poluo flower that is already late, and they have the kind of customers no one can afford to howl back at. For as vicious as Little Miss Firecracker and Miss Bosco are, they’re just the bottom of the criminal doggie food chain stretching halfway around the world. There is terrible trouble at every turn in the seemingly prosaic beach country of Florida. You see, Evil comes in many forms, and death is a constant presence that threatens to overwhelm Lemmie and his ‘untarnished paws’ at any moment, if it hasn’t already.”
Dear Avid Readers of Lemmie’s ‘tails’, if you are weak of heart or even stomach, it would make sense for you to put some distance between yourself and the hard-core troubles that seem to be bearing down on Lemmie, right now! For the real troubles of Lemmie are yet to come!”
The question is no longer will Lemmie aka Lemon Drop crack this case, but will Lemmie stand to bark another day! Stay glued to Zingertalesandmore to find out! I’m Ana Traina and this is Zingertales.
