Poppy and Nell to the rescue

Me: What on earth have you, Dave and Poppy been doing?

Nell: I need a cup of Earl Grey and a scone before I can talk to anyone.

Me: Just look at the state of Poppy. She is absolutely soaking wet and so are you two.

Nell: How about drying Poppy off with a soft towel instead of bombarding me with questions?

Me: Yes, I’m getting one. Where have you all been?

Nell: In the meadows looking for Princess of course.

Me: Princess? She’s a seal. What’s she doing in the meadows?

Nell: She was filming with Our Penguin when she slipped and rolled down the slope.

Me: Where was Knitwear Wolf?

Nell: He dropped them off while he finished his paper round and delivered some paw knitted socks to an elderly whippet who is self isolating.

Me: How did you all get involved?

Nell: Fortunately Our Penguin has an iBone so he called David for help. Rupert had no signal.

Me: But how did you get there?

Nell: Alejandro took us in the cart.

Me: What?

Nell: It’s alright. Gladys was navigating.

Me: I expect you caused quite a stir.

Nell: Why?

Me: Well, it’s not every day you see an alpaca with a Pomeranian on its back pulling a cart with two Labradors and a Maltese cross.

Nell: There was more interest in the return journey, to be honest, but that’s probably because Princess kept clapping herself. I wish she wouldn’t do that.

Me: It’s a seal thing. So where was she?

Nell: Under the giant lilies near the stream. We had an awful time getting her back up the hill.

Me: I wish I’d seen that.

Nell: Our Penguin filmed it all so it will be streaming on the YouChewed channel no doubt.

Me: Of course. Sorry.
