Synopsis

In the Doghouse! by DAVID J ROBERTSON

Rascal is an enormous German Shepherd dog. Despite being intimidating to look at, Rascal is actually a scaredy-cat and rather cowardly. He has also outgrown his kennel, and now his three friends, Misty, Bertie and One-Eyed Rose use it as their den. All this changes on the day it rains and rains and rains! Poor Rascal is soaked, so to stop him from catching a cold, his companions decide to find him a new home. One-Eyed Rose takes the gang to the other side of town, where she knows of a `kennel shop'. Unfortunately the yard, which actually sells sheds and summerhouses, is closed. The friends decide to return the next day, but Rose has already wriggled her way inside through a hole cut in the fence. Also inside are two men busily loading some of the wooden shacks onto a lorry parked outside, using a forklift truck. Unaware that the men are robbers, the dogs are spotted. One-Eyed Rose is lifted into the air on the forklift, which crashes and breaks the summerhouses! The friends are chased away, three of them back outside and cowardly Rascal deeper into the compound. Realising he is missing, the gang go back to rescue him, but the alarm is triggered as they try to escape once more! Have the friends got themselves into deep trouble yet again, and will Rascal ever have a kennel to call his own? In the Doghouse! is a hilarious tale that will appeal to children aged 7-9.
