Mrs. Ho : Mrs. Nathan ! Hello !

Mrs. Nathan : Oh ! Mrs. Ho ! Fancy meeting you here !

Mrs. Ho : Small world, isn't it ? I didn't know you were a dog lover too.

Mrs. Nathan : Oh, yes, I am. We've got four at home.

Mrs. Ho : Oh ? What breed ?

Mrs. Nathan : Alsations. What about you ?

Mrs. Ho : We've Pekinese. Actually, I can't bear dogs myself. I'm only here to pick up my husband. Messy creatures.

Mrs. Nathan : And how is it you keep them ?

Mrs. Ho : Well, no choice, you know. When the breadwinner insists, what have I to do but obey.

Mrs. Nathan : But do you really feel strongly about what you were saying about dogs ?

Mrs. Ho : Well, I guess I was exaggerating a little. I will never like them, for sure, but as long as I don't have to do anything for them, I can tolerate them being around my house.

Mrs. Nathan : Actually, I find it very unusual that someone should not find dogs appealing. I go for large dogs myself but I would imagine that most people should find Pekinese appealing in a cute. fluffy way. But, the point is, dogs are such faithful creatures. They repay any care you give them with life-long devotion.

Mrs. Ho : I dare say that what you've said is right. Still, I'd rather not have one of those cute fluffy creatures following me about ... Ah, there's my husband. Damien 1 Damien 1 ... Ah, Damien, this is Mrs. Nathan.
