I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. What are you scratching on that paper, Lady Human?
Me: A tally. Marks that keep count. Come here a second.
Stella: What are you…hey!
Me: Okay. That’s two on your front left foot.
Stella: Oh, no, you don’t!
Me: How about you, Wiggles? Here. It just takes a couple of minutes…
Wiggles: What was that? Oh, no, no, no…
Me: Okay, that’s three on your right hind leg. Progress.
Miss Sweetie: Is this that fun game where you grab my feet and I jerk them away and wrestle you?
Me: It sure is, Sweetie.
Miss Sweetie: I love that game!
Me: Me, too! Let’s play! One, two, three, four…woo hoo! One whole foot done!
Miss Sweetie: Now I get my reward. I jump in your lap! Woo hoo!
Tiger: I want to do that!
Me: Okay, let me trim your nails.
Me: How about you, Doodle?
Doodlebug: Nope. My nails are fine.
Miss Sweetie: Here I am again, Lady Human! Grab a foot and hold on for dear life! Yee haw!
