Ulf is unwell

The saddest dog of the year in this year's funniest illustrated book.
Ulf wakes up one morning feeling rather poorly. But he can’t quite put his finger on what is wrong. He goes to the doctor and the diagnosis is surprising: Ulf is dead. This is both sad and quite awkward, Ulf thinks. It becomes particularly unfortunate when no one is aware of it. Ulf therefore decides to hold a funeral. During the funeral there is a knock on the door and the doctor
arrives with surprising news.
