Me: Are you ok, Nell? We were cut off. Tell me everything.
Nell: The bad tempered boxer came back with my ice cream so I took Henry over to Rupert and Myfanwy on the beach. They were deep in conversation.
Me: In Welsh?
Nell: No, Rupert wasn’t really drugged. Unlike Horst who sent an SOS to Henry.
Me: The tainted bacon was in Rupert’s sporran with Horst. Poor woodlouse.
Nell: Exactly. We needed to get him out.
Nell: I had to think on my paws, so I said ‘Rupert, I’ve been thinking of getting David a sporran for quite some time. Could I take a look at yours?’
Nell: I thought so. Myfanwy gave me a hard stare and as Rupert handed it over I accidentally dropped it and Horst and the bacon fell out.
Me: Oh dear.
Nell: Rupert was quick to save Horst but Myfanwy saw the bacon.
Me: Oh no.
Nell: She started shouting ‘You deceiving wolf. You didn’t eat the bacon. You’re not bad at all.’
Me: He isn’t.
Nell: But he was supposed to be.
Me: Oh yes.
Nell: Anyway, that’s when the Welsh corgi choir started singing.
Nell: They were all lined up on the big boat. ‘Delilah’ wasn’t the best song choice but it distracted Myfanwy. She simply had to join in.
Me: Singing is a Welsh thing. We can’t help it.
Nell: Rupert grabbed me and we ran into the sea. I thought all was lost.
Nell: And that’s when I saw them.
Nell: The Cat and Owl Pacino in a beautiful pea-green boat coming to rescue us.
Me: But The Cat is absolutely terrified of water.
Nell: We are all much braver than we think.
Me: Yes, we are. Sorry.
