It was stolen. Birdie finds out that there’s an old rumor that there is a treasure map hidden behind the eye of that prize marlin of Grammy’s. The sheriff is very suspicious of Birdie. As Birdie and Bowser start going farther into the mystery, not even Bowser can smell how vicious the threat is. And when bad guys come straight for Birdie, Bowser knows it’s up to him to save her.
