Desperately Seeking Sherpa

We first became aware of it when the envelope appeared at Sherpa's door. But who knows when it started. The envelope was filled with cheap reproductions of pictures of Sherpa and dad. All grainy and stamped PROOF. Proof of what Sherpa wondered. I have never ever done anything wrong. Has dad?

The scene of the pics was a dog show in Connecticut. But we didn't know anyone there and we certainly didn't notice anyone taking our pics. Were they perched in a tree with a telephoto lens. Or sitting in the shadows in a car nearby with the window down wearing sunglasses. Now that I think of it, I do think I saw someone in a trench coat and a funny looking moustache.

But what do they want from us? Could there be other, less flattering, photos yet to appear? Sherpa and dad and Kirstie Alley in a muumuu? All of them together in one big muumuu?
