Its a Doggy Dog World (Crimebiters #2) by Tommy GreenwaldJimmy is sure that his dog Abby is special. After all, it was Abby who (with the help of Jimmy & friends) helped nab the criminal Barnaby Bratford and shut down Barnabys babysitting service, a front for robbing the nice folks of Quietville. Jimmys parents, on the other hand, are starting to feel like Abby is one destructive little dog (she chewed up Moms entire shoe collection!) and they insist on enrolling Abby in obedience training. The only problem is that the longer Abbys in class, the more normal (read: boring) she becomes. Jimmys superhero crime-fighting vampire dog is slowly becoming just like every other dog. She doesnt even sneak out at night anymore! At the same time Jimmys friends (the Crimebiters) are realizing that theres just not very much crime to fight in their tiny town. But when Jimmy joins the lacrosse team & mysterious things start happening on and off the field, the Crimebiters realize that Abby better get back to her crime-fighting ways... and fast!
