Nell: I know this is a sad time but we must also look forward and celebrate the happy things in our lives.
Me: And one of the really happy things is our dear little Marvin.
Nell: Yes. Marvin is 2 today and since being rescued by Chris and Shannon he has been living a wonderful life in Toronto in Canada.
Me: Yes. Look at him enjoying the sunshine. Darling pup.
Nell: He is not a pup. He is a young dog.
Me: He’ll always be a pup to me.
Nell: Marvin is coming along really well with his studies. He has been attending my zoom classes regularly and is working very hard on becoming a little braver.
Me: I know he can feel easily scared.
Nell: Unfortunately this is something that a lot of rescue dogs have to deal with in their lives. Dear Mutley often told us of his struggles in the early years.
Me: But love can change everything and look at Marvin now. So shiny and smiley.
Nell: Shiny and smiley? Good grief.
Me: Anyway, Happy Birthday darling Marvin from us all.
Nell: Yes, Happy Birthday.
Me: On another note I know Tony and Sue would like me to thank you all for your kind words. They really do mean a lot.
Nell: Yes. It is important at times like these to know you are not alone.
Me: We have such wonderful followers, don’t we?Our world is a happy, loving place and I am so happy that you all have joined us in it.
Nell: Talking of joining us, you do realise that tiger is still in the tree house, don’t you?
Me: Do you mean Beauregard?
Nell: Of course I do. How many tigers do you think there are sitting in trees in Devon?
Me: Yes. Sorry.
