I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. It has happened again.
Me: I am so sorry. I was detained outside.
Stella: And in your absence, Miss Sweetie decided that she could not wait and she…constructed her own toilet. Appalling.
Me: Actually, I find it remarkable.
Stella: What if I started constructing my own toilet? Would that be remarkable?
Me: Well…yeah. Okay. So, Miss Sweetie used her food bowl as a toilet.
Stella: Gross. Yuck. Horrible.
Me: It’s not the first time that she has done something like this.
Stella: I know! It doesn’t make it less appalling.
Me: I am cleaning and sterilizing it. It’s not something I want to do.
Stella: You agree. It’s…yuck!
Me: Yeah but think about this. She…deposited the…refuse… all in one place. She is very specific.
Stella: Next time she needs to be specific and go outside.
Me: I am not usually distracted during bathroom time. Today was different.
Stella: Don’t let it happen again.
Miss Sweetie: Lady Human, I am so sorry. I couldn’t wait any longer.
Me: That’s all right, Sweetie. I understand. I appreciate that you…contained it.
Miss Sweetie: I did my best.
Me: You made it a lot easier to clean up. Just understand. When I go outside, I am not going to stay out there forever.
Miss Sweetie: In bathroom matters, please define ‘forever’.
