Mr Spaghetti Legs is an old boy; and he leaks!
No problem in summer, as most days are warm and sunny, so I just wash him when necessary.
Not so easy in winter. I had to wait for the warmest, sunniest day we were going to have in the week, and wash only half of him, the stinky half, so he would not get too cold as he dried.
Of course, he has no idea what I am doing, or why I am doing it. He just wants to be back inside the house. So he lies right up by the door.
His tail dried quickly and was soon fluffy and white again. It just made me think of a cautionary tale!
So what is Mr Spaghetti Legs’ cautionary tail?
Don’t be stinky! If you are, Mum is going to wash you.
But you look so nice and clean, Mr Spaghetti Legs. And you can’t even tell which half was washed!
