But Spike was not very nice at all. He was very naughty. And there was much licking and biting and toys and other things that made the vicar's ears turn a rather nice shade of scarlet when they were mentioned in passing.
And the Bear was no longer sad, but Spike was walking strangely bow-legged, and Wolf went back to gnawing the itching spot on her hind leg.
And all was well with the world.
Present for nihilistbear who needed cheering up
