Smasher

Farmer Buzzard’s wife is thoroughly fed up with Smasher. He’s the ugliest puppy she’s ever seen, he’ll never be a sheepdog and he’s a menace around the house. But her husband is too kind-hearted to get rid of Smasher so he needs to come up with a cunning plan to persuade his wife to keep the dog . . .
