An unexpected Treat

Me: My Big Brave Beautiful Boy seems happy.

Nell: David found a bone. Unexpected treats are always the best.

Me: Yes, they are.

Nell: Talking of unexpected treats, Mutley has become an overnight internet sensation.

Me: Excuse me?

Nell: Yes. It was all down to Our Penguin.

Me: Tell me more.

Nell: Well, you know Princess loves nothing more than performing?

Me: Yes.

Nell: Although I wish she wouldn’t clap herself.

Me: It’s a seal thing.

Nell: Anyway, last night Mutley agreed to play the piano for her.

Me: I didn’t know he still played. I mean being deaf and partially sighted.

Nell: He still enjoys playing now and again. After all those years of touring the US with his swing band, it’s second nature to him.

Me: What happened?

Nell: Mutley started playing and Princess began to dance and sing, Well, I’m not sure I would call it singing. It sounded more like anguished barking to me.

Me: I know what you mean.

Nell: It must appeal to seagulls, however, because the Beefies went wild again and started throwing mackerel.

Me: Singing and snacking. Sounds just like Princess’s cup of tea.

Nell: No tea was involved. Anyway, the noise spread to The Barn and soon Alejandro and the larger beasts were joining in shaking their maracas.

Me: I didn’t know they had any.

Nell: That’s not the point. Even Henry and Horst did some street dancing?

Me: Street dancing?

Nell: Those boys can move when they want to.

Me: But they’re woodlice.

Nell: So?

Me: Never mind.

Nell: Anyway, Our Penguin was filming it all. So it ended up on YouChewed.

Me: Gosh.

Nell: And now Mutley’s a star.

Me: I wish I’d seen it.

Nell: Just google ‘Dancing Treat to Treat’, or Mutley Martin.

Me: Of course. Sorry.
