Harriet is back in the sea and Sara is worried about Roger

Me: The rain didn’t matter at all when we were down on the beach, did it?

Nell: No, it was actually rather refreshing.

Me: I noticed you had a spring in your step.

Nell: I enjoy the feeling of sand under my paws.

Me: I always think the sign of a good day is finding sand between your toes when you get home.

Nell: I’m not so keen on it in my bed.

Me: I think you mean my bed.

Nell: What’s yours is mine.

Me: It is.

Nell: At least the weather kept the crowds away.

Me: Yes, I know it sounds selfish but I must admit it was rather lovely to have the beach to ourselves again.

Nell: I agree.

Me: I think Harriet would swim all day if we’d let her.

Nell: She simply adores the water. It’s where she feels most at home.

Me: She’s almost more seal than Labrador.

Nell: She is not.

Me: Aren’t seals and dogs related?

Nell: Baby seals and fluffy puppies are considered to be Caniformes which literally means ‘dog-like’ and come from the same suborder of Carnivorans, if you must know.

Me: Look at you Miss Know-All.

Nell: I think you will find Alexa is the Know-All in this house. I am merely well informed.

Me: Talking of seals I’ve been thinking about Roger Blubbery out there all alone.

Nell: Here we go.

Me: I know you think he’s a little bit needy, Nell, but he’s probably just awfully lonely and looking for a friend.

Nell: I’m warning you not to get involved. Roger Blubbery does not respect boundaries.

Me: What do you mean?

Nell: Give him a biscuit and he’ll eat the whole bowl.

Me: I thought seals ate fish.

Nell: You know what I mean.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
