A DOG’S TALE…

‘ALMOST HUMAN by Rick Dogg’ is a dog’s personal account of his thrilling adventures as part of the team of an international security agency.

Rick is an Australian Kelpie who discovers he can type using a laptop. And since his senses of smell, sight and 
hearing are so much better than humans, his help is 
vital in the team’s worldwide hunt for illicit opium 
growers and heroin producers.

The boss of Fortune International Security (F.I.S.) 
and his closest tough colleagues are all former U.S. 
Marines personnel and the company works under cover 
for a number of countries including the governments of 
Australia, the U.S.A. and Canada.

                             VILLAINS

When one of the opium farms in Australia is 
accidentally torched by a couple of stupid local villains 
as part of an insurance scam, Rick is rescued by Bob, 
one of the newest recruits to F.I.S. 

Bob had been recruited in England, interviewed at 
the F.I.S. HQ in New York and had just been appointed 
to work in and around Sydney. Bob has an extra talent 
as a magician so his stage career is good cover for his work as an F.I.S. field operative and investigator.

And when F.I.S. discover there are criminal spies working at their H.Q. in the States, Rick is flown out to identify them. His boss decides to relocate the headquarters to Australia.

Meanwhile the team are hot on the heels of the mastermind behind
                              the illicit opium farms and heroin factories world-
                              wide. The burnt-out farmhouse was the location of 
                              the prototype system for the undetectable farming 
                              of opium poppies under cover and out of sight. 

                                                       ADVENTURE

                                This is a system which had been sold and 
                              franchised to criminal drug barons around the
                              world.

                                Rick and the team at F.I.S. have to locate the 
                              hidden opium farms and put them out of action in
                              this exciting international adventure.

                                       ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:  

                          When Rick had to travel by air round the world
                              on scheduled passenger flights rather than on 
                              long-range charter aircraft, he was able to do so as a registered assistance dog.  Most international airlines offer this service and often dogs like Rick can travel free with their owner.
