Sherlock Hoover and the Case of the Dirty Laundry

My dear constituents of DogBlogville, it pains me to tell you that there's been a vile deed inflicted upon a most innocent victim.
The villain left a scene of horror and to the untrained eye,
it looked as though there was not so much as one clue to his identity.

This case was not for just any ordinary detective ~
this was a case for none other than:

Sherlock Hoover

The Victim: P.U. Bag
Address: 1000 Dust Bunny Lane, Pennsylvania
Occupation: holder of dirty vacation clothing
Age: unknown

The crime scene: the spare bedroom

What looked like an unsolved mystery to most, soon became an open and shut case for Sherlock Hoover. Careful examination of the crime scene revealed the clue that would prove to be the undoing of the criminal at large.

Super sleuth Hoover quickly noticed that the rope necklace that used to adorn Mr. Bag was nowhere to be found. With that in mind, Hoover's nose quickly picked up its scent and he followed it straight to the butcher of Mr. Bag. 

Who would have guessed that it was Canine Mustard?
Arrogantly he still held the victim's necklace in his paw.

The perpetrator was soon apprehended, booked and
is being held without bones bail. Maybe with time and counseling, he will find a new leash on life. But for now, you can all rest easy knowing this slayer is not roaming the streets of your town anymore.

Yet another week of unknowns lies ahead,
and as much as we'd like to be packin' our vacation bag,
we must not remain clueless. The best way to get it over with is to
just tie it up neatly and get it over with.

Canine Mustard?! Who'd have thunk it! I'm glad I didn't guess Poodle White with the fetching stick!

Congrats on a case closed Sherlock Hoover. That criminal, Canine Mustard, looks strangely familiar. I have a few mangled shoe mysteries here that could use your attention. There's one large, one medium, and one small suspect, but my money's on the little one!

Dude! We need you in California urgently!! Two-legger is missing some rather curious items, one shoe, six socks, one brown leather belt, twelve kitchen towels, toilet plunger, gloves and a hat. We have been searching all over but have not been able to pick-up the perpetrators scent. This is a job for Sherlock Hoover!!!
