Special Spaces – Conversations with Stella and Wiggles


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.

Me:        Ummm!

Wiggles:   Ummm!

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.
