Harriet has something on her mind

Me: Harriet has something on her mind. She looks concerned.

Nell: Probably because you cut the top of her head off in that photo.

Me: I was trying to get her legs in. They seem ever so long today.

Nell: Harriet is a Labrador not a Lurcher. Her legs are perfectly normal.

Me: Anyway, that’s definitely not the reason. She hasn’t even seen the photo yet.

Nell: If you must know, rumour has it that Jim the Farm Dog was down at the Quay yesterday sharing an ice cream with a mysterious lady Border Collie.

Me: When you say rumour I presume you heard it from the cows?

Nell: Of course I heard it from the cows.

Me: I thought you said you didn’t gossip?

Nell: I don’t. But when it comes to family I like to keep my eye on the bowl.

Me: Don’t you mean ball?

Nell: No.

Me: Anyway, I’m sure there’s a good reason. Maybe there’s a sheepdog convention going on?

Nell: Perhaps.

Me: What flavour was the ice cream?

Nell: Strawberries and cream.

Me: Oh dear. That is a little worrying.

Nell: Why?

Me: It’s a luxurious sort of flavour.

Nell: Don’t be ridiculous.

Me: Those combination flavours tend to suggest a special treat. Did it have sprinkles?

Nell: I don’t know.

Me: She must be in his bubble.

Nell: Excuse me?

Me: They couldn’t be sharing an ice cream otherwise.

Nell: Now, that is worrying.

Me: Maybe Jim has an extended bubble like we do?

Nell: What do you mean?

Me: Well ours keeps growing. First Princess and Our Penguin then Benjamin Seagull and now the dolphins.

Nell: I beg your pardon?

Me: Princess met some lost dolphins when she went for her daily swim.

Nell: I need a lie down.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
