Who is Scooby the Leash Tabby? Where did he come from? What is the story with Scooby? Christmas time he received a new Tartan harness. It was just what he wanted! He was tired of the pink one binding under his front legs, and this one has velcro. He also wanted to look like Spike the Scottish Black Cat .When I adopted him from the shelter, he was already leash trained. When I first got a leash out, he got all excited and purred and stood still while he was fitted up. That was the clue.
