Finnigan is not you average squirrel: 1. he wears dark glasses 2. he's friends with a boy named Doug 3. he wants to work for the Secret Service

But perhaps the most interesting thing of all about Finnigan is the report he writes up about Doug’s apartment building, Normal Towers. Finnigan notes suspicious behavior occurring on almost every floor and makes sure that the White House is informed about it. Will his report finally earn him a job working for the president?
