Me: Harriet’s operation isn’t until tomorrow?
Nell: Calm down. The vet called first thing and explained that there are some very sick animals who need operating on today. They asked if we minded postponing it until tomorrow morning and we agreed.
Me: Of course. How is Harriet?
Nell: She is very brave and quite understands.
Me: Bless her.
Nell: David, on the other hand, is crying in a corner.
Me: Oh no!
Nell: He probably can’t bear another evening of fasting.
Me: That’s not true, Nell. It will be the stress of waiting.
Nell: Yes, David’s Waiting Skills are not good. Either way we need to get through the next 24 hours. Poppy has suggested a Day Of Fun. I’m not sure. It’s either Fun or Focus.
Me: Can I vote for Fun?
Nell: We have an awful lot to do you know. I’ve got a German Shepherd coming to interview me later for Hunde Heute, a popular newspaper. They want my take on the Royal Wedding.
Me: I didn’t know you spoke German?
Nell: Of course, I do. And French. My Spanish is a little rusty and my Italian needs refreshing but I get by.
Nell: We dogs are citizens of the world.
Me: I’m impressed.
Nell: Anyway, I think Poppy might be right about today so gadewch yr hwyl yn dechrau.
Nell: Let the fun begin in Welsh. Do keep up.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
