Chaos at the Doggeroo Dog Show brings dog investigator Jack to the job. Tracking down the culprit who throws mud at the show dogs makes an entertaining story, heightened by Alan King's unique voices for Jack, his owner, Sarge, and many other dogs and owners. King ably demonstrates the dog perspective on human behavior, adding to the comic effects. While he pulls off the "dirty" humor and dog jokes, the recording's gimmicks are less successful. The circus soundtrack, odd noises, and doggy asides detract from the story. However, Jack's effervescent personality and the large quantities of mud may redeem this recording for young listeners.
