I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human has developed a new bad habit. As usual with humans, it is bad words.
Me: I haven’t developed a bad word habit. Have I?
Stella: Your bad words show up a number of times a day. I am surprised that you haven’t noticed.
Me: Tiger, time to go out.
Tiger: Aw, do I have to?
Me: You didn’t go out earlier. You must go now. Head on out that away. Peepeepoopoo!
Stella: Aaaggghhh! Please stop saying that!
Doodlebug: No, that’s not it. It’s Peepeepoopoo.
Wiggles: Now I’m confused. Which comes first? What am I supposed to do?
Me: Just do what you always do when you go out.
Stella: Then why do you have to say it? Baby humans talk like that. We know what to do when we go out. We are bulldogs.
Me: What’s the big deal about saying Peepeepoopoo?
Miss Sweetie: Peepeepoopoo? Right here? Right now? Okay.
Me: No, Sweetie, no! Outside!
Miss Sweetie: But you said the special word inside.
Stella: I told you it was a bad word. Now maybe you’ll listen to me.
