Tail of two diggers, A
Digger, a mischievous pup, ran away from home seeking adventure. He became the soldiers' mascot and, during World War I, Digger's adventures were not quite what he expected. He was wounded and befriended by Sergeant James Martin. When he returned home, Digger hated loud noise and certain smells, which reminded him of war. For his bravery and long service, Digger was presented with a silver engraved collar. Based on a true story.

It's a conspiracy of buffoons. He recorded everything in his private notebook but, then, the manuscript was stolen. If this book gets out, he will be grounded for life. Or, maybe longer.
