Me: What lovely photos of Marv and Rhubarb.
Nell: Yes. Marvin is part of my WoofsApp group for young dogs, as you know, and he shared the photos on there.
Me: It’s lovely to see them getting along so well.
Nell: Yes. Marvin went on a 17k hike with Chris and Shannon and their friends and he and Rhubarb bonded.
Me: I wish they didn’t live so far away, Nell. I was going to fly over to Canada this summer.
Nell: There is always next summer. Canada isn’t going anywhere you know.
Nell: And you know Chris will be on the first plane over to see you as soon as it is safe for him to do so, and so will Alice and the children.
Me: Yes. You’re right.
Nell: In the meantime, enjoy the fact that the sun is actually shining today and Glide with Gladys can take place outside.
Me: Where are the llamas?
Nell: There was an unfortunate incident involving spontaneous spitting, so Gladys was forced to ban them from today’s session.
Me: What happened?
Nell: One of the Salcombe Setters suggested that pyjamas weren’t suitable attire for sporting activities and the llamas reacted badly.
Me: I don’t blame them. It was a very personal remark.
Nell: I’m afraid Setters tends to stick their noses in other people’s business. Fortunately they were outside, so no harm was done.
Nell: A quick roll in the grass and her coat was clean. No need for such a fuss.
Me: What is Gladys going to do about her classes during lockdown?
Nell: Our Penguin will film them and upload them on to YouChewed. No guests of course.
Me: Not even the llamas?
Nell: The llamas aren’t guests. They’re essential dancers. Do keep up.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
