Me: You and Mutley look exhausted.
Nell: If you remember we were partying until late last night. The Cat certainly makes a powerful cocktail.
Me: I know. But we had to celebrate Ivy the Romanian bearded collie coming home to Lorna. It’s such wonderful news.
Nell: Yes. I admit I danced a little Labrador jig when I heard and I rarely jig.
Me: I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a Labrador jig.
Nell: They are rare. You would be lucky to see one.
Me: Gosh. To think Ivy has been missing since 12th December. I wonder what she has been up to since she ran away.
Nell: All sorts, no doubt. I should imagine she will be needing to rest.
Me: Lorna definitely will. And all the people who have been looking for Ivy. It was a real community effort.
Nell: Yes. We must mention Doglost again. They do a wonderful job and deserve our support.
Me: Yes. I am so glad Ivy has come home. I can’t stop smiling.
Nell: I noticed. Someone else is coming home tomorrow, aren’t they?
Me: Yes. Chris is back from Canada for a month. I can’t wait. Are you coming to collect him?
Nell: Of course. I always do.
Me: You might even dance a little jig at the station.
Nell: A Labrador jig is never danced in public. You should know that.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
