In her will Aunt Flora left all her money, her house and estate to the care of Peaches Mimosa, her miniature apricot poodle. Her nephew Toby hasn’t a legal leg to stand on, not unless he can get a psychiatrist to declare Peaches’ guardian non compos mentis. But Peaches, never one to let things lie, has a few plans of her own. First published in the October 1990 issue of Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine.
