"Raining Cats and Dogs" by Laurien Berenson

Raining Cats and Dogs by Laurien Berenson is a murder mystery with some dog and cat stories tossed in which added some humor.  The main character has five poodles and a neighbor who has a bunch of cats.  Her private life relating to her neighbor was the humorous part of the book.  She and her poodle went to a dog obedience class which invited her to join them on their visit to the nursing home.  Although they weren't therapy dogs exactly, many of the residents enjoyed seeing the dogs. I was interested in this aspect of the book because it's something I would like to do with Abby some day.  

The murder was committed while they were at the nursing home and the Poodle owner is the one who just started her own informal investigation and discovered who did it.  The highlight of the book for me was the cat lover lady who didn't like dogs but tolerated the poodle during the visits at the nursing home. 

I liked it overall, but it was very slow moving.  This was one I had to plow my way through.
