Book of Gal Pal Detectives with Salami-Loving Dog, with Crime Scenes with Clue Arrows?

I have a vague, sketchy recollection of a book series I used to read in 2nd and 3rd grade (20 years ago). It was about two young girls, friends, who solved mysteries together. They also had a dog that loved salami. I believe the were normal books, not comic books, but each book had cartoony pictures of "crime scenes" and such, with little arrows pointing out certain clues (kinda like Bernie Mac, except funny). Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?

Sounds to me like the Something Queer series by Elizabeth Levy. Does that ring a bell?

Response by poster: Yes! That's it! Looks like they're all out of print, though. Thanks for the help!

Looks like there's lots of copies reasonably priced over at Alibris!

I haven't thought of those books in decades, and I knew exactly what you were talking about even though I couldn't remember the names. I loved those books as a kid.

Are these the books where the one girl would tap on her braces when she was thinking hard?

I totally had a crush on her.
