The real pet detective : true tales of pets lost and found
Watkins, Tom2017
"Okay listen up everyone," I said, zipping up my high visibility jacket. "Itwill be most effective to comb the local area by taking a village each." I told my team as I traced my finger across the map. My experience as a former copper was invaluable for our search. We weren't looking for a missing person though - we had a dog to find. Any pet owner knows the agonising panic when their beloved furry family member goes missing, but Tom Watkins, retired policeman turned pet detective, is on hand to reunite our animal companions with their owners. From recordingthe owner's voice to lure cats from their hiding place, organising a fly-over toraise the profile of missing Toby the terrier and organising a Crimewatch-style reconstruction of a dog-snatching on national TV, Tom will do whatever it takesto get the nation's pets home, safe and sound. THE REAL PET DETECTIVE is the story of 16 years of missing pets, their owners and Tom's team of expert pet investigators.
