HORACE THE HIPPO: CHAPTER 7
Granpo gave Horace a bit of a scrub up
and then came the hard bit. Horace was to go in the washing machine! Only on a quick program though and before you could say Horace the Hippo seven hundred and forty nine times, out he came,
absolutely dripping wet but clean.
The next thing of course was the need to put him in the tumble drier but by now Horace was well used to the rough and
tumble and in hardly any time at all he was warm, dry and sparkling clean. He was plump and he was happy and the truth is, very pleased to be in his new environment
was determined to make Horace happy again but Granpo, although he wanted him to be made better had a conscience about taking him away from his rightful owner. Granmo said never mind all that,
