‘Wake up Lucky!’ Dad shouts from downstairs.
‘We’re off to buy a car.’
Lucky bounds down the stairs and joins his brother for breakfast.
As they munch their cereal, Dad tells them all about Lookers.
‘Your great-grandad Tom bought his first bike from Lookers way back in 1910!’ ‘That’s more than 100 years ago, will our car be that old?’ Leo asks. ‘I hope not,’ Dad laughs.
Lucky and Leo play outside while they wait for Mum and big sister Laura to get ready.
They play catch, climb the tree in their front garden and Lucky shows off his circus skills by jumping through Leo’s hula hoops.
All that playing makes Lucky’s paws very muddy so he gets a bath in the big paddling pool before they leave.
‘Remember when we brought Lucky back from Lookers?’ Leo says as he strokes Lucky affectionately.
‘Of course I do. Our lives wouldn’t be as fun without him now would it?’ Dad replies, as Lucky jumps from the paddling pool and covers him with soap suds!
On their way to Lookers, Leo and Lucky watch out for some of the best trees for them to climb.
They pass a lovely field with a stream running through. ‘We can stop there for our picnic later on,’ Mum says. ‘And we can climb that huge tree!’ Leo shouts. Lucky barks in agreement. He loves climbing trees.
When they arrive at Lookers, there are lots of different cars, some big, some small, and all different colours. Lucky leaps from the car and wags his tail excitedly.
He barks hello to some visitors looking at a pretty red car and hides under a great big green one on display. ‘Come on Lucky,’ Leo shouts. ‘Let’s go inside and explore’.
Inside, Mum and Dad chat to a friendly man, Laura relaxes on the sofa and flicks through a magazine, while Leo and Lucky have a drink and explore.
They find a huge tyre, some comfy seats and a smaller car for them to practice their driving in too. Lucky makes friends with all the staff and they can’t wait to have him back.
‘Look what we’ve got,’ Dad shouts, while shaking his keyring. Lucky and Leo follow him outside to a bright, shiny blue car.
They climb in and the seats are big and comfy. ‘Can I practice driving home Dad?’ Laura asks. ‘Not a chance! I’d like to enjoy my new car, thanks!’
The friendly man who Mum and Dad were talking to earlier leans down to pat Lucky.
‘What a friendly dog! Would you like to come back and see us? We have a very special job for you to help out on our TV advert.’ Lucky barks a ‘yes.’ ‘Can I come back too?’ Leo asks. ‘Of course, see you tomorrow.’
‘You’re going to be famous,’ says Leo, as he leans into the picnic basket for some sausages.
But Lucky gets there first and runs off with them in his mouth. He’s one hungry and mischievous dog! ‘I hope he’s better behaved tomorrow!’ Mum shouts, as she chases him across the field to rescue their lunch.
Lucky’s big day has arrived and he wants his outfit to be perfect. He tries on a few neckerchiefs but they don’t look quite right.
‘How about wearing a collar?’ Leo says ‘I’ve got the perfect one!’ Mum joins in, ‘How about this?’ Lucky barks his approval and he is ready for his film shoot.
The dealership is very busy and there is a bake sale with lots of yummy cakes on offer.
Lucky is just about to dig into a treat when a nice lady asks him to come and have his makeup done for the camera. Lucky has his own chair so he sits back and enjoys being pampered. Meanwhile, Leo and Laura dig into the cakes.
In front of the camera, Lucky does what he does best.
He makes friends with a lovely little boy and girl and plays some games.
Lucky meets a nice lady who visits the dealership to buy a car, he mans the bake sale and sneaks in a few cakes too!
At the end of the day Lucky, Leo and Laura all fall fast asleep in the car on the way home.
Laura is dreaming about buying her own car from Lookers one day.
Leo is dreaming about all of the scrumptious cakes he ate at Lookers.
Lucky is dreaming about his exciting day meeting new friends, eating yummy cakes and being a TV star.
