Me: I love this photo because it makes me want to reach out and stroke Harriet’s beautiful soft chocolate brown ears.
Nell: Well, don’t please. She’s busy.
Me: She doesn’t look busy.
Nell: Just because we don’t look busy doesn’t mean we aren’t. It’s something we Labradors do particularly well.
Me: It still looks like lounging around to me.
Nell: David isn’t lounging at all. He’s in a particularly keen position.
Me: True. He’s definitely concentrating on something. Walter Pigeon I expect.
Nell: Now, a lot of people are extremely worried because they aren’t seeing your posts every day on Facebook.
Me: I know and there’s nothing I can do about it.
Nell: It’s very frustrating.
Me: I don’t know why FB have to change things.
Nell: The main thing is that people need to know there’ll always be a story for them.
Me: Yes. Every day.
Nell: So, if we don’t appear they just have to type ‘Conversations with Nell’ in the search box and they’ll find us.
Me: It’s an awful nuisance though.
Nell: Or they can make us a favourite which will also hopefully work.
Me: I hope so.
Nell: So do I.
Me: Talking of favourites, wasn’t it kind of Tracey to help Poppy with the pancakes yesterday?
Nell: Pancakes are normally Manuel’s thing.
Me: He had his tentacles full with all the orders.
Nell: There were rather a lot.
Me: I had some of Tracey’s homemade jam on mine.
Nell: I prefer lemon and sugar.
Me: Knitwear Wolf had three. It was lovely to see him enjoying himself.
Nell: Yes, you’ve said that before.
Me: I hadn’t realised how serious he’d become.
Nell: Rupert worries about things.
Me: Yes, he cares deeply for us all.
Nell: And we care about him.
Me: Of course. Sorry.
