    Lara is the first MI5 spy dog! She is highly intelligent and is trained by the British intelligence service. She can play basketball and she can lye in the sun sipping orange juice . In this crime-fighting packed book, Lara has been hunted down by secret top hounds and she has to act like she is (a orginal dog from the RSCPA and has a original home ) or in other words NORMAL!Can Lara pull this of?...
