I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human! Make it stop!
Me: Oh, no. It’s way too early. Bulldog moaning. Why? Why me?
Stella: Why you? Why me? Make it stop. Please.
Me: Okay. Come on with me.
Stella: No, I’ll just stay here, thank you.
Me: Who’s moaning? All right. Be honest. Tiger?
Doodlebug: Huh? What?
Me: No, I guess it wasn’t you. Sweetie, are you moaning?
Miss Sweetie: (snore)
Me: Never mind. So that leaves…
Wiggles: Roh-rawr-wahr. Ahrrrr.
Stella: Lady Human, make it stop!
Me: What are you moaning about, girl? It’s way too early for breakfast. It’s still dark.
Wiggles: It’s moaning time.
Me: Do you need to go outside?
Wiggles: No, it’s dark outside. Wahr-roh-rawr.
Me: It’s dark in here, too. It’s dark everywhere around this part of the planet.
Wiggles: Where is the big light in the sky? It’s running late.
Me: No, it’s just not over us yet. What’s wrong, girl?
Wiggles: I’m sad. It’s dark. I’m all alone.
Me: You are far from alone. It won’t be dark for long. And as for sad, remember this. Breakfast is coming.
Wiggles: Oh, yeah. Hey, how about having breakfast now?
Wiggles: Okay. Rawr-roh-rawr.
