I explained that as Husband was away and I'd just made a hairdressing appointment for the afternoon we'd have to have an early walk.
'Yeurh,' he grumbled.
He came with me but for the first part of the walk he wasn't really there. The lights were on but 'please turn them off!' The fox and squirrels who meandered across our path could have performed the whole of Riverdance and he wouldn't have noticed.
In fact the only squirrel he did chase, towards the end of the walk, was up a tree.
'That's my boy.'
'Well I don't want to catch a squirrel,' George explained. 'It might bite me.'
