A Prairie Dog Murder Mystery Part 1

I shot these photos today and they just seemed to flow together into an interesting murder mystery story. The silly little fell'rs just seemed to like playing dead all the time. So here's my really silly photo western murder mystery for six prairie dogs and a couple of children. (If you don't like this you can always pray for a revival of the moose and squirrel.)

PDMMP1 01

Ben: "What was that? Was that a gunshot I heard?"

PDMMP1 02

Ben: "By golly I think there's trouble. I'd best be check'n it out."

PDMMP1 03

Ben: "By george! Somedoggy shot George! George! Can you hear me?"
George: "Bennn...."
Ben: "No George! I best be finding the sheriff."

PDMMP1 04

Ben: "Hey Sheriff! Sheriff! Somedoggy shot George!"
Sheriff: "Now why would anyone want to shoot George, Ben?
Ben: "I don't know Sheriff, but he's just over there a spell and the only thing he said before he died was 'Bennn....'"
Sheriff: "OK Ben. I'll ask around."
Bang! Bang!

PDMMP1 05

Sheriff: "Gunshots! Ben, you'd best stay in the office till I get back."
Ben: "You be careful Sheriff."

PDMMP1 06

Sheriff: "I beg your pardon folks, but have you seen or heard anything recently?"
Female Child: "Well maybe Mr. Prairie Sheriff. There were some pops just a few minutes ago over that way."
Sheriff: "Much obliged miss. You two be careful now -- we have a killer on the loose."
Female Child: "Oh no Sheriff! Whatever shall we do?"
Sheriff: "Just keep low miss. I'll have the killer in a jiffy."

PDMMP1 07

Sheriff: [Muttering to himself] "Darned Zoo regulations prohibiting animal from carrying gun. I ain't going out there without something. I'm just have to make some of these here sharp, pointy sticks."

PDMMP1 08

Sheriff: "No! Not Tommy and his girl Tracey! Why! Who! What!"

PDMMP1 09

Stanley: "Gosh darn it. The Sheriff's gonna be sniffing around these parts now. I gotta lay low."

PDMMP1 10

Announcer Dog: "Will the Sheriff figure out who the killer is before he can kill again or is Stanley going to ride off into the sunset? Tune in next week for the exciting conclusion!"
Sheriff: "I beg your pardon Mr. Announcer, but I don't think we're done here yet."
Announcer Dog: "Sorry Sheriff. It's budget cuts after all."
Sheriff: "Dang nabbit!"
