Stanley is quite the remarkable dog. Aside from normal canine activities like howling at the moon, he also turns his hand to fixing the oil tank, making catfish stew, repairing an old TV and clearing the bathtub drain. Unfortunately all this activity takes place during the night, which is most upsetting for his family, the Wimbledons, who are trying to sleep.
The reason for Stanley’s nocturnal activity is finally revealed in an explosive intergalactic journey. As always, I missed the sneaky wee clues along the way, I’m sure you will be far more astute viewers than I was.
This is a hilarious story, that will have you looking at the family dog just that little bit more carefully. My advice? If your pooch starts clearing your bathtub drain, buckle up and get ready to enjoy the ride!
