So...... We start off in the bath with cuddles and sympathy and a very large beefy treat. The bad stuff then follows, and a poor little drowned rat appears!
And as the water becomes blacker and blacker - a sparkly clean little Fred starts to appear...
And despite the fact that my hair is now all over the show, I think Fred is now starting to enjoy this!
And suddenly, there is a lovely little boy, all fluffy and velvety, rolling around on the lounge rug and playing with his bone. I don't think there were any ill effects there then .... except perhaps for my appearance!
