  • Digger, a big, lovable dog, and unsuccessful gardener. Really helpful and proud to be Mr. Rhino’s deputy.

  • Rudolph, a young reindeer, who after his first long trip with Father Christmas has been left behind to grow stronger in a warmer climate. A good problem solver.

  • F.D.B. (or sometimes D.), a strong dog and a good planner, who has learned to fly.

  • Snowy, a dog with incredible powers of hearing. The basket helper who reassures rescued creatures.

  • Figgy, the tour operator, a cheerful dog who encourages the timid army recruits.
