International Dog Day 2022

Nell: That’s a rather nice photo of me.

Me: Yes. You’re actually smiling.

Nell: I can smile when I want to.

Me: You should do it more often. It suits you.

Nell: Is there any particular reason for your choice of photos today?

Me: It’s International Dog Day so I thought we should celebrate you all.

Nell: Starting with me?

Me: Yes, you’re the smiling face of our day.

Nell: Most kind.

Me: And I thought it would be lovely if people posted photos of their dogs on here today too, telling us where they live in the world.

Nell: That would be wonderful.

Me: I’m including the UK of course because international means everyone.

Nell: It does.

Me: We’re in this together.

Nell: We are.

Me: And while we should embrace our uniqueness.

Nell: We certainly should.

Me: We should also delight in our differences.

Nell: Yes, where would Dave be without Sally?

Me: Knowing underneath we are all just one great big family.

Nell: Are you running for Prime Minister?

Me: No. I’m just making a point.

Nell: Well, I’m finding this awfully profound for a Friday morning.

Me: I just feel strongly that you dogs deserve celebrating.

Nell: Bacon sandwiches might say it better.

Me: What do you mean?

Nell: There’s nothing like a bacon sandwich to make you feel loved and celebrated.

Me: But it’s much deeper than that, Nell. It’s the chance for us to put our appreciation into words.

Nell: I think most dogs would agree that, given the choice, a bacon sandwich would convey your appreciation so much more.

Me: Really?

Nell: Yes. So, you organise the sandwiches and we’ll listen to you while we’re eating.

Me: Happy International Dog Day, Nell.

Nell: Thank you. Now, don’t forget the bacon.

Me: No. Sorry.
