Ruffle the Rail Dog
When Ruffle, the Airedale Terrier, knows that the garden gate has been left open, he can’t resist exploring along the tracks of the steam railway at the bottom of the garden, lured on by the smell of bacon!
His help on that first day saves the train from disaster and so begins a series of adventures where Ruffle’s help proves invaluable…
Ruffle at the seaside
Ruffle quickly screwed his eyes tightly shut and held his breath. His ears were just about to burst when the carriage was flooded again with sunlight. Ruffle opened his eyes and let out a huge breath. He was sure his cheeks had puffed out!
Ruffle’s first train ride takes him to the seaside – the excitement of the sand, sea and salty smell! But when he sees that a small boat has capsized, Ruffle quickly raises the alarm.
Ruffle and the one eyed bear
Yes, now he knew!
Ruffle discovers that some toys are very special as he reunites a little bear with his owner.
Ruffle at the fair
Ruffle’s journey takes him to the fair and the excitement of the rides. However, for one little girl, the fair becomes an unhappy place. But Ruffle is there to make sure things turn out alright.
