In both of these early short stories, Waugh's black humour and satiric skills are at their sharpest. The poodle, Hector, takes a central role in On Guard (1932), fiercely defending his putty-nosed mistress, Millicent Blade, from the advances of unwanted suitors. In Bella Fleace Gave a Party (1934), an octogenarian Irish aristocrat prepares her crumbling mansion for a great evening of festivities, but things don't necessarily go to plan.
