Me: Look at my Big Brave Beautiful Boy. How handsome is he?
Nell: Yes, he is becoming quite the heart throb. I suppose being the lead singer in a band means you are bound to have a large fan base.
Me: Are you talking about Driftwood Bark?
Nell: How many bands does David have?
Me: I didn’t know they were that successful.
Nell: ‘I Want To Bark Free’ just went to Number One on iChews. Do keep up.
Nell: They are all extremely excited.
Me: Who else is in it then?
Nell: The Cat for a start. It plays the tambourine when needed.
Me: I didn’t realise it was musical.
Nell: It isn’t. Then there is Alejandro. Hooves are a great asset to a drummer apparently.
Me: I suppose they would be.
Nell: Malcolm plays the penny whistle.
Me: Gosh. He’s coming out of his shell.
Nell: Malcolm is a flamingo. The only shells he’s coming out of are prawn shells and the odd crab, or lobster. Where was I?
Me: The Driftwood Bark line up.
Nell: Yes. Gladys plays the double bass.
Me: Isn’t that rather a large instrument for a Pomeranian?
Nell: Nothing phases Gladys. She is fearless. You know she is performing in the Dog Ballet in Torquay this evening?
Me: I didn’t know.
Nell: Finally there is Mutley is on the keyboards.
Me: But he’s completely deaf.
Nell: I’m afraid that doesn’t always matter.
Me: I know what you mean.
Nell: Although, sometimes he appears to be playing a completely different tune.
Me: I know the feeling.
Nell: You just need to stay in the real world. Did David just walk past wearing a pair of ballet shoes?
Me: Yes, but don’t worry Gladys was with him.
Nell: In a tutu?
Me: Yes. Sorry.
