And soon enough it lands Bertha her very own celebrity stardom...but is it all just a lot of hot air?
When Terri-Lee goes to the pet-shop she thinks she’ll be choosing a dog – she doesn’t expect the dog to be choosing her! But Crumble is no ordinary pet and he’s got a few questions to ask:
How many walks will you take me on? Do you like to dance? Will you tickle me? I like that a lot. Will Terri-Lee’s dance moves and answers be enough to convince Crumble that she could be his owner?
