He reported it to the police, of course, who thought this neighborhood alarm clock ?nally met with a dissatis?ed customer and was now cradled in dumplings. The police said as much to Ortega, and the old man wanted to know what the police were going to do about it. Well, since it had been almost a week since they’d had a complaint come in, the chief sent young Glen around the neighborhood asking chicken 1605 questions.

She passed on the ear plug offer, but poured him a cup of coffee and that seemed to be that. But still, ol’ Doodles was gone, and there was no denying that. If he had simply escaped and was still in town, we’d have heard him somewhere, so that was ruled out.
