A total ban on taildocking looks very likely in Scotland. Will the rest of the UK follow - sadly, I doubt it somehow, not for a very long time. Kato has the most impressive tail in the Collective - a Las Vegas Tail - an immense plume of joyous communication, a one flagged semaphore of Happy Dog. If Katos tail were a frock it would be a diamante spangled, tassled affair with a long train - the Liberace of Tails. At its most foolish and comical, its a Dame Edna Everridge tail. Its a surefire barometer for her mood - and for how muddy it is outside. If tails were trousers - Katos tail would be cartoon 70s flares, with paisley insets and bells on.
Little Abe has a heavy tail - as a pup, the vet muttered that she may have problems with it later. Thankfully, Abe has never had a problem but has cleared many a coffee table of beercans and ashtrays.
