Nell makes a discovery

Nell: You are not going to believe this.

Me: I just might.

Nell: Look at this photo.

Me: It’s darling Mutley laughing.

Nell: Exactly.

Me: Actually, it’s a younger Mutley. Where did you find it?

Nell: Now, this is going to surprise you and I was only on there doing some research for a friend.

Me: On where?

Nell: Plenty of dogs.com.

Me: I don’t think I know it.

Nell: You must. It’s a famous dating site.

Me: Are you online dating? Charlie will be furious, Nell.

Nell: No, I just told you I am merely helping a friend.

Me: Who?

Nell: Never you mind. Let’s just concentrate on Mutley. Goodness knows what he’s been up to.

Me: You mean Mutley is online dating?

Nell: Look at his profile. ‘Dog about town and entrepreneur looking for a lovely lady to take to the ball.’

Me: Well, good for Mutley. What ball?

Nell: Count Bingo Flamingo’s Valentine’s Day Ball of course. Do keep up.

Me: I didn’t know.

Nell: He has it every year. Haven’t you noticed the excitement?

Me: I thought it was because of the royal visit.

Nell: That’s delayed until next week due to the inclement weather.

Me: What a shame.

Nell: It gives us time to sort out a few things. Transport for a start. The large animals ran riot in that horse box. Knitwear Wolf has suggested a double decker bus.

Me: Now, that’s an idea. Do you think we should talk to Mutley about this dating thing?

Nell: There’s no point. He can’t hear.

Me: Maybe he should have mentioned that in his profile.

Nell: You mean ‘Applicants in writing please, as I am hard of hearing.’

Me: Something like that.

Nell: Don’t be silly. It’s all by text nowadays, anyway.

Me: Of course. Sorry.
