Young detective solves neighborhood crimes.
The 14th Street Detective Service was open for business after school Monday--Friday, and every weekend. Julia Billey, age 11 and her small office bedroom were what constituted the 14th Street Detective Service. The white room with green trim included an antique roll top desk with lock and key, a twin bed with princess bedcover, and an easy chair for reading.

“Humph! Mother cleaned my room, again, and I can’t find a thing.” Julia was beside herself until she caught sight of the kit by her desk.

“Whew!” She uttered. “Can’t go investigating without the investigator’s kit.”

Julia’s investigator’s kit included sunglasses, whistle, magnifying glass and a fingerprint kit. Also, included was the latest edition of the Kid Detective Magazine.

Julia’s mother was accustomed to her daughter’s imagination and knew when her daughter would be out on a new “case”. “My girl loves them animals” mother said. “She will search for the animal that needs her the most.”

Julia loves animals like she loves being a detective. Today she was on a mission
On the way home from school, she saw a large gray dog with a lock and chain around its neck, tied to a big tree. The water bowl was dry, and it was hot in the sun. She named the dog, “Wolf” and then reported the gray, sad-eyed dog to the local humane society. “It’s just not right,” Julia told herself. “Animals need love and care, too.”

Caring for an animal means providing basic care: water, food, medical care, and hugs. Julia knew this. The Humane Society took custody of Wolf based on Julia’s report. Julia felt good about the outcome. She headed home for dinner and to finish writing her report about the old gray dog named “Wolf.”
