1/31/2017: Lisa Loucks Christenson's Bow Wow Detectives has a new logo. The dogs featured on the logo are two of her dogs, who, along with her husky and shepherds were the inspiration for the entire series. You'll find them in the trading cards and upcoming books.
Valentine (left) and Ruthie Buttons (right), are sister siblings, and they are the main characters of the Bow Wow Detectives® series; along with Dani and Dale, Lisa's family's German Shepherds (sister and brother siblings, born 9/11); and the first Bow Wow Detectives®, lead character, Shadow, who was Lisa's family's Siberian Husky for 18 years before moving to her new home in heaven.
Lisa could never write a book series without God's blessing on it. Lisa said many prayers asking for His help and it arrived in not only the form of support from her family, friends, customers and guests who visited her galleries with their own dogs she photographed, people who believed in this literary project. Help arrived in mysterious ways too, for each dog Lisa photographed seemed to have their own story Lisa could see in their eyes, inspiring scenes and story ideas Lisa could ponder and think about.
One thing is for sure: The Bow Wow Detectives® series would have been impossible to write without the help of a few very clever canines that surreptitiously entered her life; all while she was working on her Wolves of Whitewater Falls series, and thinking about her cat books (Camp Cats) she'd started years before but put aside. By the way, Lisa's cat book ideas and sketches, if you haven't guessed by now, are the Meow Meow Detectives™.
The books are written for Young Readers, ages 8-12.

ALL of the photos that represent the Bow Wow Detectives® were personally shot by by Lisa Loucks Christenson. Her collection of images includes dogs she grew up with, companions who now have a permanent place to spend eternity in Lisa's Bow Wow Detectives® books. The ideas and story scenes for this series began in 2005, while Lisa's field dogs accompanied her on on her Lisa's Bald Eagle Documentary. When Valentine and Ruthie Buttons arrived, they inspired the roots of the series name and from then on, the stories that are now the Bow Wow Detectives® and the Meow Meow Detectives™ that features Lisa's cat who she saved off the highway.
