Alfie the deerhound is a large grey puppy. he loves his boy Charlie, and cheese and he's very good at digging holes. but poor Alfie has got lost and he's scared of thunderstorms and being hungry and never seeing Charlie again...
Meanwhile, Charlie doesn't know what to do but one thing is sure : he'll never stop looking for his dear hound. Can Alfie ever find his way back to charlie and his great big squashy beanbag in the kitchen?
NOTE : Alfie is found by a couple of men who are lampers - people who hunt animals such as rabbits and foxes by blinding them with very bright lights then using dogs and guns to kill them. Alfie manages to escape, but gets shot in the process. He does survive and is reunited with his owner at the end
