  • Annie: No. What's wrong?
  • Simon: I'm a new father, that's what's wrong. I got absolutely no sleep last night. Me and Ruthie were supposed to take turns with the feedings, but I couldn't get Ruthie up!
  • Annie: Why would you have to get up for feedings?
  • Simon: Well, every time the puppies ate, we fed Happy, so she wouldn't run out of milk!
