I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am jealous.
Me: Why? Or should I even ask?
Stella: You should know. Why does Wiggles get to nap in that rag box?
Me: Because she crawls in it. Nobody else does.
Stella: I would, but she is always in it!
Wiggles: You have your special rain potty spot and I have my special indoor rag box spot.
Stella: Not fair! I only want to use my rain potty spot on rainy days. You use your indoor rag box spot all the time!
Me: Stella, I have never seen you pay the least heed to the rag box. You pass by it every day, all day long, and don’t even look at it.
Stella: That’s because Wiggles usually has her fat body in it.
Stella: You know what the vet lady said!
Me: I know the vet lady said that you had both gained weight and we need to watch that.
Wiggles: Yeah, so there!
Me: We each have our special spaces. Let’s enjoy them without envying others for theirs.
Wiggles: Oh, all right.
Stella: Oh, all right. But don’t think that I haven’t noticed when you sneak off to your special space, Lady Human.
Me: Yes, I do have a work space that is in a different room from the rest of you. Sometimes I have to be quiet to get my work done. You have been in there, Stella.
Stella: I know. To be honest, it is the most boring place in the whole house, so keep it and welcome to it.
