Overview

Orlando and Grace decide that the kittens need something new to interest them, and advertise for an animal-clean, honest and loving-who wants a job as a pet. They choose Bill, a large and obstreperous poodle. Bill is extremely bouncy and hard to control but Orlando persuades him to promise to behave himself. After a mad outing where Grace is flying along on the end of Bill's lead as he chases over the snowy fields, Bill is forgiven and becomes an essential part of the family so that Tinkle resolves to be a pet himself when he grows up. As always subtle visual and verbal jokes abound.
