Dave needs a cuddle

Me: Is Dave ok?

Nell: He is suffering a crisis of confidence. Kev is looking after him.

Me: Oh dear. Why?

Nell: Certain people have been distracted and he is feeling left out.

Me: Well, it’s a very busy time of year for Poppy with Christmas and the cafe.

Nell: It’s not Poppy.

Me: Mutley is a little tired, I suppose.

Nell: It’s not Mutley.

Me: It can’t be Harriet. She is very caring.

Nell: Good grief. Do I have to spell it out?

Me: It’s not you, is it?

Nell: No. Have a think.

Me: Is it me?

Nell: Of course it is. You are completely wrapped in Jonathan and Alice.

Me: Oh dear. I am. My poor Dave.

Nell: You just need to remind him now and again that he is still your Best Boy and he will be fine.

Me: I’ll do that right now.

Nell: Good. He will be Marvellous again in no time.

Me: Do you think he is scarred for life?

Nell: For Goodness Sake he just needs an extra cuddle.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
