Author: Vi Le Roux
Year: 2015

Markus is tien jaar oud en is baie lief vir sy twee honde. Daar is ’n swaksiende Malteser, Basjan (hy dink hy is groter en sterker as al die ander honde), en ’n Labrador, Jonathan (baie vriendelik en lojaal). In Drie Baasspeurders ontdek Markus per toeval dat hy ‘hondetaal’ kan verstaan. Hy sukkel om aan sy superkrag gewoond te word, maar besef later dat dit ook pret kan verskaf. Hy beleef spanningsvolle oomblikke saam met Jonathan en Basjan terwyl die drie ‘baasspeurders’ die hondestelers probeer vastrek. Basjan byt ’n rooi onderbaadjieknoop by die hondesalon af wat as die verdoemende bewysstuk dien.
