Harriet is concerned about David

Me: Harriet looks concerned. Is it because it’s a rainy Monday?

Nell: It has nothing at all to do with the weather.

Me: Well, something is wrong.

Nell: David is being distant and aloof.

Me: What do you mean?

Nell: When Harriet went over to him for her usual morning snuggle he walked away.

Me: He never does that. Dave loves snuggles. He’s the snuggliest dog I know.

Nell: I know. It’s his strength and weakness.

Me: He’s been pushing you away recently, too.

Nell: Yes, and last night when we all curled up on the sofa after Strictly he chose to lie alone on the chair.

Me: Maybe he just needs some space.

Nell: David never needs space. David invades space. He thrives on being with others.

Me: Yes, I know.

Nell: Harriet is afraid David might have eaten something by mistake.

Me: He does that all the time, Nell.

Nell: Yes, but we’re not talking Yorkshire puddings here.

Me: I never mentioned them.

Nell: I know you and David like to steal one if you can.

Me: They’re so tasty hot out of the oven.

Nell: Harriet thinks David might have eaten the suspicious honey.

Me: Oh no.

Nell: The empty jar was found under the sofa.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: And it had been licked clean.

Me: He likes to lick things clean. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy.

Nell: Yes.

Me: Have you asked him?

Nell: Not yet, but we will.

Me: So, Poppy didn’t put any honey in the cakes?

Nell: Only a few spoonfuls.

Me: I thought the llamas ate the cakes.

Nell: They did.

Me: Are they behaving any differently?

Nell: Didn’t you notice?

Me: No.

Nell: They’re all sitting in the field wearing spectacles and reading the Financial Times.

Me: Oh dear. Sorry.
