Home Office Job: Ralph says ‘Come on! You quite clearly cannot function without me! Who gets you up in the morning, eh? Who chums you to the shop to get the newspaper (and a treat for me)? Who tells you it is time you got some fresh air and walk me – again and again and again. Who tells you when it is cocktail sausage hour – again and again and again. Who warns you about pesky intruders (cats) in the garden? I am so exhausted. You have no idea! A few hours lying against the Raeburn for warmth is the only recompense for my efforts. If there was a doggy union. . . there’s an idea, I think I will start one! I am working to rule today though, so I will think about that tomorrow. Anything else? I am like a taxi driver you know. The clock is ticking!’
