The Dog Show

Nell: Nice photo with the judges. It seems David did well at the Dog Show yesterday. He was exhausted when he got home.

Me: Yes. He entered several categories, including Best Puppy. He didn’t win any of them, but he was the audience’s favourite and was so good he earned a Well Done rosette.

Nell: I am pleased. Winning isn’t everything. I understand the size issue in the Puppy class but surely they could see his impeccable pedigree.

Me: Yes. There was stiff competition, particularly from a pair of poodles. He struggled a little in the obedience class I am afraid.

Nell: What obedience skills did he display?

Me: Well, Kev asked him to sit and then he ate a piece of sausage.

Nell: He ate a piece of sausage?

Me: Yes. We didn’t have any treats so a kind lady offered him some of her sausage.

Nell: Eating a sausage isn’t a skill.

Me: Kev bowed and everyone clapped.

Nell: Good grief.

Me: He was ever so popular. He loved it.

Nell: Was he wearing a hat?

Me: No, we thought it best to leave it at home.

Nell: Thank goodness.

Me: You might like to come too next year. We could enter you in the veteran’s class.

Nell: I beg your pardon.

Me: 7 years and over.

Nell: I think not. Do you know where my scarf is? I’m having lunch with Siegfried. He drives a Mercedes C- Class Cabriolet so we may have the roof down. I don’t want to spoil my hair.

Me: I didn’t know you knew about cars. His one sounds a bit flashy. Are you on first name terms with Herr Schaeferhund now?

Nell: I am. Do you have a problem with that? Of course I know about cars. What do you think Matt Le Blanc and I talk about when he calls?

Me: I thought you were just Friends. Sorry.
