Harlowe 2.0.0, Twine 2, Help with whitespacing and embeded Hooks.

Hello there,

Recently new to both programming and Twine. I've been working on a small project now for a month or so. Slowly getting through the macros, trying to deploy them in various ways. I've now gotten to the stage in a project of trying to adjust the spacing, making it look good. I seemed to have reached the tricky area of whitespace and linebreaks.

I am using Harlowe 2.0.0 and Twine 2.

Having followed this discussion:

I managed to deploy Greyelf's solution, using the backslash, inside the associated hook. This worked great for me, when creating a long quest list, with various (if: )'s. The problem I currently have is, how to escape and suppress a line break, while inside a hook, and execute another hook (this time linked).

This is an example of the current trouble I am having. This example fails in that the [Give the dog a rest] hook looses all spacing with the text above it.
(set: $alpha to false)
(if: $alpha)[The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.]\
(if: $alpha is false)[The lazy dog failed to jump over the quick fox.\

[Give the dog a rest]<rest_dog|
(click-replace: ?rest_dog)[You gave the dog a rest.(set: $alpha to true)]]\

The link usually rams up against the other text around it. I've been putting backslashes everywere to see if I can make a difference but I am having no luck. Any help would be appreciated.
