I never gossip

Me: You know when we went to the activity field for our walk yesterday?

Nell: Yes?

Me: You girls were doing an awful lot of sniffing and sitting.

Nell: Sniffing and sitting? Haven’t you ever heard of a Sniffari?

Me: Yes, I think I read about it in Chloe’s article in The Growl on Sunday.

Nell: Well then. Exercise is an all round experience for an animal. It is not only about the walking and running, you know.

Me: I see. It’s just that sometimes it looked like you and Harriet were simply having a good gossip.

Nell: Gossip? I never gossip. How dare you.

Me: You certainly do, Nell. You and your friend Dorothy are constantly texting each other.

Nell: We are in the same WoofsApp group. It would be rude not to answer.

Me: I thought you might have been discussing a certain handsome wolf and a naughty lion. Not to mention a rather charismatic tiger.

Nell: If you are referring to Rupert, Lionel and Beauregard stop that right now.

Me: Just saying.

Nell: Well don’t.

Me: I mean I’ve heard of being caught in a love triangle but never a quadrangle.

Nell: Nobody is caught in anything. Except for Lionel who is well and truly caught now. Thank goodness.

Me: Why is he still here then?

Nell: Ask Sally. You know David has joined the interrogation team.

Me: What? My Big Brave Beautiful Boy isn’t an interrogator. He’s much too kind.

Nell: That’s what I said, but Sally insists that David’s kindness is disarming.

Me: I suppose it is.

Nell: Apparently Lionel enjoys talking to David.

Me: Who wouldn’t? I expect Dave enjoys talking to him.

Nell: That’s not the point. They aren’t there for a chat. Lionel is full of useful information.

Me: Oh yes. Sorry.
