Me: Look what I found. An old photo of the puppies.
Nell: That was taken just before we moved to Devon in October 2017.
Me: Yes. They were four months old and quite unaware that they were about to go on a big adventure. Look at their adorable little faces. Bless them.
Nell: David adores his sister.
Me: Yes, I know. He’s such a loving Big Brave Beautiful Boy.
Nell: Now, concerns were voiced at Morning Thoughts.
Me: What about?
Nell: The badness is spreading. The Helpline is flooded with calls.
Nell: David has had to take on an assistant.
Me: Not Gladys?
Nell: No. Naughty Nigel has volunteered his services. He knows what it’s like to be almost bad and he is handsome and willing.
Me: But he lives hundreds of miles away.
Nell: That doesn’t matter. It’s all down to technology and the iBone and PawPad nowadays. How do you think I communicate with Little Marvin in Toronto?
Me: I didn’t know you did.
Nell: Of course. We FaceTime regularly on WoofsApp. Chris and Shannon decided that I would be an excellent Dogmother. Rhu is one too but she could do with some help.
Me: How is Little Marvin?
Nell: Struggling with Compulsive Biting which he will soon grow out of but doing a lot better on the health front.
Me: Good. Little Ollie is showing signs of naughtiness you know. He stole Sue’s wool when she was knitting.
Nell: Talking of wool. Have you seen Knitwear Wolf? I know he has a meeting with Sally today and I wondered if you had any information.
Me: Yes. He was wearing a forest green jumpsuit with brown sturdy boots. Rather dashing.
Nell: I don’t care what he’s wearing. I want to know what’s happening.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
