Tristan prepares to return to Edinburgh University to continue his veterinary studies. But he needs to ask Siegfried to write his cheque for food and lodgings. His older brother struggles to
hand over the cash. Then announces that Tristan isn’t going anywhere until he can prove his commitment to being a vet.

Mrs Hall’s encouragement

Encouraged by Mrs Hall, Tristan sets out to earn his cheque by taking Tricki under his wing and doing all that Siegfried asks. It looks like he’s won his brother over, until Siegfried announces he’s got other plans for Tristan.
