Spoom rarely barks unless provoked. To avoid little Spoom’s irritable state you can feed him a cocktail of wine, sherry and port. He is renowned for sneaking up on candyfloss stands and drooling (especially after drinking or if he gets excited). Spoom is the founder of the Society for the Preservation of Old Mills. He reports to the members of this society through a quarterly magazine – him being on the cover with some or other old mill.
