Hattie Button

Me: What are you three doing?

Nell: We are playing Sliding off the Bed. David always wins. I don’t know why I bother.

Me: Clever Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: There is nothing clever about it. He just stretches out and slides off. Harriet and I have to wriggle.

Me: You look more asleep than wriggly to me. At least Harriet is trying.

Nell: Why are you interrupting our game anyway ? You seem excited.

Me: I’ve got something to show you. Look at these photos.

Nell: Who is that small fluffy creature?

Me: It’s Hattie Button.

Nell: Hattie Button? Is she one of the Barnstaple Buttons?

Me: I don’t think so.

Nell: She looks very young and very curly.

Me: Yes. She’s a chocolate cockapoo. She is only 8 weeks old.

Nell: You haven’t done anything silly have you? We really don’t have any room.

Me: No. She belongs to my sister Alex.

Nell: Dogs never just belong. We choose. Do keep up. Belonging works both ways. I’ve told you this before.

Me: Yes. You are right. Anyway, Hattie Button is your new little cousin.

Nell: Another youngster in the family and a chocolate one, too. Harriet is going to be delighted.

Me: Yes, bless her.

Nell: Have you put that interview with the American lady on our page yet?

Me: Kev helped me make a YouChewed channel so I’ll post the link to it later.

Nell: Good. Now, I would steer clear of Poppy this morning.

Me: Did Dave make another mistake?

Nell: David is involved and so is bacon, but not in the usual way.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: David’s clients have eaten all our bacon. Poppy is rushed off her paws.

Me: I only had one sandwich. And it did help.

Nell: You did?

Me: Yes. Sorry.
