I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Help! Oh, me! Oh, my! Wiggles knocked a gate aside and squeezed through a gap in our invincible fence.
Me: I hear her barking outside! I’m going after her!
Stella: What if she gets in the road? What if a monstrous rolling box runs over her? What if…what if…what if we never see her again?
Miss Sweetie: Wiggles is smarter than I am. I was outside, too. I didn’t leave the yard. Wiggles must have had a good reason for walking into the unknown land.
Me: We’re back!
Stella: Wiggles! Where did you go?
Me: I found her standing on the front porch, facing the front door, waiting to be let back into the house.
Stella: Why ever did you squeeze out of the fence?
Wiggles: I wanted adventure.
Doodlebug: But you came right back.
Wiggles: I had enough adventure. And I remembered. My food is in here.
Tiger: She will try it again, Lady Human. She’s just that kind.
Me: And you aren’t?
Tiger: I know where I am well off.
Me: I’m going outside…alone…to work on the fence. No more adventures.
Stella: All right, tell me, Wiggles. What happened out there? Why did you come right back?
Wiggles: I heard something. I think it was Lady Human. She was talking to the Great Creator. I had to go to the door and bark.
Stella: How could you hear her? She was inside. Until we heard you bark from outside, she didn’t even know that you were gone.
Wiggles: But He did.
