Synopsis

When a neighbour's dog goes missing, Damian and his gang of detective apprentices are called in to help find it. First they try posters - but for some reason the newsagent is not happy that they have super-glued their hand-drawn posters to his window. Then they try a decoy. And when that doesn't work, they resort to 'rescuing' dogs that have been left on the street, and taking them back to Damian's shed. As angry dog owners bear down on them, very luckily the original missing dog turns up!
