A heartwarming, hilarious follow-up to One Hundred Bones!
Scruff just can't resist sausages; salami, pepperoni, chorizo . . . he simply loves them all. But gate-crashing barbecues and hanging around outside the local butcher's shop is not making him the most popular dog in town. Then one day, disaster strikes! There's a break-in at the butcher’s, and all the sausages are stolen! Neither the policeman, nor the mayor, nor the butcher can trace the sausage thief. There's only one thing to do—Scruff will have to sniff him out! After a lot of twists and turns, Scruff's sniffing talents and bravery save the day, and he and his friends are rewarded with a meal at a fancy restaurant. What's on the menu? SAUSAGES!
