Product description

Dogs aren’t meant to fall in love. But Bunky just has. Vomit buckets ready. It’s not your usual holiday romance. One: this is a lovesick dog we’re talking about. (Weird.) Secondly, he’s fallen for a CAT. Oh, Bunky! Barry was so excited about his caravan holiday to Plonkton. But his weekend by the sea has been totally wrecked. Maybe you know how it is when your best friend meets ‘someone special’ and leaves you all on your own. So that you don’t have anyone to hang out with. But it’s even worse when your best friend IS A DOG. WHO FANCIES A CAT. OH. MY. UNKEELNESS!
