Synopsis

Bob and Rob by Sue Pickford

Rob is a burglar and he's bad. Really bad. Bob is his dog, and he is really good, baking cakes and helping old ladies across the road. But he remains faithful to his horrible owner, helping him with robberies. One night Bob and Rob see some inviting packages through the window of a house, and can't resist stealing them all. When the parcels turn out to be children's toys Rob is disgusted, but Bob feels sorry for the children and returns the toys.

The ending sees Rob behind bars, while Bob is adopted by the family to whom he returned the toys. He now has a lovely life as a proper dog, with no more robbing and stealing.
