Short back and sides

Me: Poppy must be feeling so much better after her haircut.

Nell: She is.

Me: Harriet waited by the gate the whole time she was away. Bless her.

Nell: Yes, I know. She was worried about her.

Me: Why?

Nell: There have been reports of people in town not respecting government guidelines.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: And it turns out she was right to worry.

Me: What happened?

Nell: You know Rupert lent John the Doberman his motorbike?

Me: Yes. He’s a very caring wolf.

Nell: Well, as soon as they left here they were followed by a group of bullying Beefies in Kiss me Quick hats.

Me: How annoying. Who would kiss a Beefy?

Nell: Quite. They threw the odd mackerel but fortunately Poppy was able to catch them on her sword.

Me: She’s good at that.

Nell: Years of practice. Being a champion at fencing does have its advantages.

Me: I didn’t know Poppy could fence.

Nell: Of course you did. She’s the one who taught Gladys. You must have seen them sword fighting in their outfits,

Me: I didn’t recognise them. They were wearing masks.

Nell: So you think a couple of small dogs just came over here with swords to fight in our garden?

Me: Stranger things have happened, Nell.

Nell: True. Anyway, when they got to the groomers there was a group of poodles outside.

Me: Queuing? I hope they maintained social distance.

Nell: No. Comforting a male Yorkshire Terrier who’d been given a heart shaped face.

Me: They do that with Yorkies.

Nell: I know. Anyway, Poppy was having none of that. She took out her sword and said ‘Short back and sides. No hearts or skirts.’

Me: Well, they seemed to have listened.

Nell: Nobody argues with Poppy.

Me: Of course not. Sorry.
