It's a Well-Known Fact. Wherever in the multiverse someone develops a system of showing moving pictures, there will arise certain inescapable results, such as Incredibly Clever And Resourceful Dogs Who Save The Day. Laddie is a Discworld Mickey-Appropriation of the Roundworld equivalent, Lassie, and her contemporary canine stars. (Lassie on film and tv was always played by a Laddie.) Bought by the nephew of Thomas Silverfish to star in Moving Pictures in Holy Wood, Laddie is befriended by Gaspode the wonder dog (who also stars in many other books) and - while being completely canine, and therefore thick - helps Gaspode to save the day. Then gets the credit for it afterwards, much to Gaspode's great annoyance.
