Nell: So this must be Harriet.

Me: Yes. Your little niece. Isn’t she gorgeous?

Nell: Very tiny.

Me: Yes. She is a lot smaller than the others.

Nell: Others?

Me: There are 8 of them but don’t worry we know we can’t have them all.

Nell; Good grief.

Me: Although I adored Freddy and Kev loved Fluffy.

Nell: Stop right now.

Me: You would love them too if you saw them.

Nell: But I didn’t.

Me: No.

Nell: You went to my family home without me.

Me: We did.

Nell: You tore the family apart.

Me: That’s a bit much, Nell. The puppies all have to go to new homes.

Nell: You do realise the implications of this. The weight of responsibility.

Me: Yes of course. Kev and I know we will have a lot to do.

Nell: You? I’m talking about me. As their aunt I am going to be responsible for their upbringing.

Me: I suppose you are.

Nell: I didn’t even have a say.

Me: No.

Nell: You never think things through.

Me: No.

Nell. Big Dave and Baby Harriet.

Me: Yes. But I know you will be wonderful with them.

Nell: Sometimes I think you forget I’m a Labrador not Mary Poppins.

Me: Sorry.
