I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Our pack in the perfect example of good order and polite behavior. I am so proud to be…
Me: Hey! Slow down!
Wiggles: Sweetie! Shame on you!
Miss Sweetie: Not shame on me! Shame on you! You butted in line!
Wiggles: You can’t butt in if you belong here.
Me: What is the rush? You will all get outside within a few seconds of each other! You act like silly, crazy humans in rush hour traffic!
Tiger: Humans act like this? That is a high compliment.
Me: No, it’s not.
Doodlebug: What if I say, “Excuse me”? Can I cut in line then? Because if I can, EXCUSE ME!
Stella: All right, here’s the new standing order: I always go first.
Me: What if you are taking a nap?
Stella: Then obviously not. Wiggles goes second with Sweetie close behind her.
Tiger: What about me?
Doodlebug: What about me?
Stella: Tiger, you have to wait until Lady Human can go out with you, so you won’t get scared.
Tiger: I don’t get scared…often…not every day.
Stella: Doodle, you have to wait for Lady Human, too, so you won’t…you know…so you won’t go snacking.
Doodlebug: But I LIKE to snack.
Me: It’s the type of snack you like that’s the problem.
Stella: Bottom line: NO CUTTING IN LINE or butting in line, whichever you prefer to do.
