Description: Digby was an Old English Sheepdog who was fed Formula X, which lead to him growing to fantastic proportions. Fortunately for dear Digby, he was given an antidote and reverted to normal size before the British military forces could destroy him. However, it's inevitable that Formula X will be used again, hopefully on a Gamma Dog next time.
