The Cocker Spaniel puppy’s foster brothers and sisters know something’s up but aren’t quite sure what.

The big training cage used when the now four-year-old Cockers George and Milly were pups, and when the now one-year-old Rag Dolls Toshie and Tinker were kittens, has been prepared for the new arrival.

The dogs and cats have all had a good sniff round it, wondering what it heralds. Tinker’s now so worn out she’s had to have a lie down. But which is more comfy — inside or on top of it? Tinker will let us have her verdict soon.
