Having grown up on the land, he's mature beyond his years, and being in the cool group doesn’t normally worry him. However, Marcy Bliss is in the cool gang, and she smells like apricots and peaches.Our hero Charlie Parker adopts a greyhound puppy from the Greyhound Adoption Agency. He calls the dog Chuckles and the two with Charlie's friend Chester become inseparable. The boys teach Chuckles amazing tricks and experience a number of funny and exciting situations. Charlie doesn’t realize that two crooks, Scar and Dave watch the development of Chuckles and try in a hilariously unsuccessful attempt to steal Chuckles to race as a greyhound. Scar observes Chuckles' affection for Mr Bentwhistle's poodle Fiffi. Scar uses Fiffi to 'get to' Chuckles. They snaffle the dogs and hide them at S and D Tomato Farm where they are planning to paint and disguise Chuckles.
