Gruff has bought a new skateboard with his pocket money. It has shiny yellow wheels and a very cool design on the back.

It’s a tricky thing to master but he’s putting in the practice.

Give the dog a bone.

A nice big bit of antler. Bit of skill there jamming into your mouth sideways like that Bonnie.
