I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I will get back to you. Just keep scratching, Lady Human.
Me: I don’t mind, but I am going to have to get up sometime.
Stella: Not now though. Just scratch that spot right there. Yesssss….
Me: I’m sorry, girl, but I’ve got to get going. There are other things to do.
Stella: Don’t you like being lay abed?
Me: Honestly, yes. But lay abed is considered lazy and that’s not a righteous stand to take.
Stella: Even when you and a dog are lay abed and you are scratching the dog and the dog likes it and it doesn’t even cost any money?
Me: Even then. We have tasks to perform. Can’t be lazy.
Stella: But it feels so good.
Me: Yeah, it does. Maybe just a few more minutes.
Tiger: Hey, I need to go potty!
Doodlebug: Me, too! And don’t forget breakfast!
Miss Sweetie: I want to lay abed. And I want breakfast and potty time.
Wiggles: We all want that. What’s the holdup?
Stella: I’ll just stay here, Lady Human. Take care of everybody else. I’m fine right where I am.
Me: Okay. As long as you’re sure.
Stella: Oh, I’m sure. I am very sure.
Me: They are going to call you ‘lazy’.
Stella: Who cares? Lazy is as lazy does.
Me: I think this qualifies as ‘lazy does’.
Stella: Yep. That’s me. Lazy does.
