Mole Hill Mystery

Me: What’s going on?

Nell: The puppies are Investigating.

Me: What?

Nell: Mole hills.

Me: Is Dave doing what I think he’s doing?

Nell: Marking the spot?

Me: You could call it that.

Nell: Yes. It’s important work and David is the best dog for the job.

Me: If you say so.

Nell: It’s not me doing the saying. It’s Sally. These Instructions have come straight from the top.

Me: Do we know why?

Nell: Let’s just say that we have reason to believe the moles are involved.

Me: Really?

Nell: An extremely suspicious line of mole hills has been detected in the fields.

Me: Gosh.

Nell: And they are all leading down to the sea.

Me: Do you think it has something to do with the mysterious clippings?

Nell: There’s been another incident. A long haired poodle woke up to find itself short haired.

Me: So it was clipped in its sleep?

Nell: Yes, and no sign of hair anywhere.

Me: Was it a Standard clip, or more of a Continental?

Nell: That’s not the point. I just wish Terry wasn’t involved.

Me: He’s not the clipper, is he?

Nell: Don’t be ridiculous.

Me: But he’s been meeting up with Squawk secretly and he’s a Beefy.

Nell: Yes. I know.

Me: Does Sally?

Nell: Of course she does. I told her.

Me: What did she say?

Nell: She tapped her nose with her paw.

Me: Itchy nose?

Nell: No. It was a sign.

Me: Do you think Sally let Squawk go on purpose?

Nell: I’m sure she did.

Me: And Terry is going undercover by pretending to be Squawk’s friend?

Nell: It’s possible.

Me: Why are you tapping your nose?

Nell: Good grief.

Me: Oh, I see. You’re giving me a sign.

Nell: Well spotted, Sherlock Martin.

Me: Sorry.
