Seattle police Lieutenant Spencer Watley is an excellent policeman. With his beloved K-9 partner, Pepper, he works hard and is successful at putting criminals behind bars. But, Spencer is an outright jerk, rude, and unpleasant. During an operation involving a chase, Spencer is killed. When he is at the brink of entering heaven’s gates, he finds out just how mean of a person he was and discovers he is unqualified to enter in. However, he gets another chance to redeem himself and enter the pearly gates if he agrees to go back to earth in the body of his best friend and buddy – Pepper his K9 dog. His mission is to do some good by helping a teenager and his family learn to love each other. They are dysfunctional and desperately need help. He really isn’t interested in the broken family at first, rather his real motivation is to find his own killer. But as time goes on, and as the reader hears the thoughts and feels the emotions of Spencer, (who is now Pepper the dog) he begins to change and his heart softens. His attitude changes and he sincerely starts to care about the family and the human friends he makes along the way. Follow the journey with his adventuresome struggles and triumphs, new found friends (and enemies) and the criminals he encounters in this wonderful must read tale about selfishness, crime, double-dealing, courage, loyalty, redemption, teamwork and, of course, our beloved canine friends.
