Dave has a lot to think about

Me: Dave is looking rather thoughtful.

Nell: Yes.

Me: He had a very successful visit to the vets yesterday.

Nell: I know.

Me: He weighs 47.8 kilos. He could do with losing a kilo, but he’s still perfect.

Nell: Yes.

Me: The vet said he was a magnificent dog. She even suggested that we contact the Kennel Club to have him registered as a stud dog.

Nell: Exactly.

Me: That’s good news, isn’t it?

Nell: It depends. Sally might not agree.

Me: Oh, I see what you mean.

Nell: We discussed it at Morning Thoughts and David is going to have a quiet with Charlie and Mutley this afternoon.

Me: Mutley can’t hear.

Nell: No. But he can listen and nod knowingly.

Me: Personally I think my Big Brave Beautiful Boy would make a wonderful stud dog.

Nell: I quite agree. He is both handsome and kind which is a winning combination in my eyes.

Me: Yes. He has a wonderful temperament. He is a great credit to you, Nell.

Nell: You are too kind.

Me: Talking of kind, thank you for coming to see my little sister Alex with me yesterday.

Nell: She is unwell. I was glad to be of comfort.

Me: You were glad to eat the cat food.

Nell: I beg your pardon?

Me: I heard you crunching in the kitchen.

Nell: I may have stumbled across a few biscuits when I went to find water. I thought they were for me.

Me: You so didn’t, Nell. You checked to see if we were busy chatting and then you slunk in there and wolfed them down.

Nell: Slunk? I have never slunked in my life.

Me: It looked like slinking you me.

Nell: I was moving quietly in respect for the indisposed.

Me: Of course. Sorry.
