I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. TEA TIME!
Me: Tea time? No. What?
Stella: You just called for it. You said, “Tea time!”
Me: No, I said, “Pee time!” We don’t observe tea time around here. Stop begging for it. You don’t drink tea.
Stella: I would if you would let me.
Me: There’s a whole bunch of stuff you’d do if I’d let you, and a bunch of that stuff would be bad for you.
Stella: So, what does that have to do with tea time?
Me: Let me ask you this. Which would you rather have – tea time or pee time?
Stella: Well, tea time sounds like a party and I like parties. But pee time feels really good and then I lie down and take a nap. I guess my answer is let’s have tea time and then have pee time.
Me: That sound likes a good order of things, but we are not having tea time.
Stella: Oh, all right. Pee time. We will just settle for less. But why do you get to have tea?
Me: It’s not harmful to humans. Some of it is quite good. When I find a tea that I am sure is safe for dogs, we can have tea time together. How about that?
Stella: We still get pee time meanwhile though, right?
Me: Oh, yeah. Nobody does without that.
