Description

Sniff! Sniff-sniff!

I smell a bone. A bone that's BIG.

I'll get it out, I'll dig and dig.

A big, BIG bone! I know it's there!

It will take work, but I don't care!

Tiny may be a small dog, but don't let that fool you. He's a pooch with power who knows what he wants. And he's going for it. But oh, those pesky pessimists -- they're trying to rain on Tiny's dig-parade!

Thank goodness for one special boy who believes in Tiny, because in the end, this dog's grit proves that he's the little pup who could... dig up some giant surprises!
