Handsome Hound

Me: My Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: Yes, but which is the best photo?

Me: I like all three of them. Why?

Nell: David has been shortlisted by the Daily Growl for Handsome Hound 2020.

Me: Oh my goodness. How exciting? Who decides?

Nell: I think the readers eventually vote for the winner, but I’m not sure.

Me: He must be in with a chance.

Nell: Of course he is, or he wouldn’t have been nominated. He needs to choose a photo and wants our help. So is it 1, 2 or 3?

Me: I don’t know. I need to think about it.

Nell: The Cat says 3 because he has a distinguished profile but I am leaning more towards 2 myself.

Me: Although 1 has his darling damp nose and frowny face.

Nell: Good grief. Would you listen to yourself?

Me: Well, I have to say we needed something like this, Nell. Something positive.

Nell: Yes, I agree.

Me: Dave must be very excited.

Nell: He is. It will be interesting to find out who the others are.

Me: Yes. Knitwear Wolf is extremely handsome.

Nell: There’s only one problem?

Me: Not the cardigans? He wears them with such style.

Nell: No. He’s a wolf. What’s that awful barking outside? It sounds like someone has twisted their ankle. I hope Gladys hasn’t been bouncing on next door’s trampoline again.

Me: Shall I see who it is?

Nell: Yes, but maintain social distance if it’s not one of the household, please.

Me: I will.

Nell: Well, what’s going on?

Me: I know this is going to sound a little unlikely, even for us, but there’s a seal outside barking.

Nell: Very funny. I expect it’s wearing a crown.

Me: No, a rather fetching wig actually, and it’s called Princess. Sorry.
