A dashing new duo is wowing the town of Crumbly-under-Edge. Smug the pug is clever, funny and full of surprises. And his owner, Tallulah Foghorn, is just as flamboyant and fantastic. Pippa Peppercorn has fallen head over heels for the pulse-quickening pair. Dash the dachshund, on the other paw, is not so sure. He thinks Smug lives up to his name, and Tallulah is nuttier than one of Mrs Fudge’s fruitcakes. Has he smelled a rat, or is it just jealousy biting? Yet more doggy delights from the fabulous Pooch Parlour, where pampered pet salon meets canine detective agency!
