I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Wait! What just slapped me in the face?
Me: Duck! Goo is flying!
Stella: Doodlebug! Really?
Doodlebug: What? What happened?
Stella: You happened! You! Shaking your big ole bulldog head!
Doodlebug: Yeah, I did. So…
Me: When you have a long string of slimy drool hanging from your mouth, please restrain from head shaking.
Doodlebug: But then how can I get rid of the long string of slimy drool hanging from my mouth? It has to go somewhere.
Me: Uh. Good question.
Stella: Yes. A good question indeed. Personally, I don’t know as I never have long strings of slimy drool hanging from my mouth.
Me: True, Stella. You are relatively drool-free.
Stella: Doodle, try scraping the drool off on the side of your water bowl.
Doodlebug: Then the drool will get into my water.
Me: It does anyway. I know. I’m the one who washes your bowl out.
Doodlebug: That doesn’t mean I want to add more to it.
Stella: Sling it off outside. It’s bigger out there. Less likely to hit the rest of us.
Doodlebug: I can try, but sometimes I don’t know drool is there until after I shake my head.
Stella: I know what we need. Shields and helmets like those humans on the Picture Box. What do they call them?
Stella: Yes. Now we will be Vikings against drool.
