Poddy and Flora by Paula Metcalf

...like jelly and ice cream, like buckets and spades, and like Flora and her dog Poddy. But when Flora goes to visit Gran, Poddy has to stay at home and nothing is much fun. And then Poddy realises it's not just Flora he's missing, but his tail seems to have disappeared too! When will Flora come home, and where on earth is Poddy's tail? An endearing and amusing tale about a little girl and her much-loved dog.
