Crime Biters: My Dog is Better Than Your Dog by Tommy Greenwald 

Book description from
Jimmy Bishop loves doing 3 things:
1) Laughing at funny dog videos online,
2) watching his favorite show (Stop! Police!) on TV,
3) and reading his favorite vampire book (Fang Goodness) over and over.
His self-involved older sister and workaholic Mom think he needs to stop obsessing already! But when his Dad finally allows Jimmy to get a puppy before school starts, everything changes and Jimmy has something new to focus on: his amazing dog, Abby who seems to have some very unusual habits. She sleeps all day but is wired at night, and she runs from the garlic kelp biscuit made by Jimmy's strange new babysitter Mrs. Cragg. There's just something different about Abby. Could she possibly be...a vampire? Jimmy's best friend Irwin thinks Jimmy's being ridiculous, but then when Abby uncovers a real crime in progress and helps him become friends with an actual, human girl, even Irwin has to admit that perhaps Abby might have some super powers after all.

My 25 cents...The book has some funny parts and it seems like there will be more adventures to come featuring Abby and her odd behaviors. If you are a dog lover you will probably enjoy this story.  Jimmy is really convinced he has adopted a vampire crime fighting dog, based on the odd behaviors he is seeing. Jimmy and his sister have a love/hate relationship like most siblings so if you are a younger brother you will definitely see Jimmy's side of things!
