I am Stella, Queen of the English Bulldogges. Lady Human, Doodlebug has a problem. Please save him.
Me: What? He’s been outside for a little while, but there’s no…
Stella: Look at him. He’s stuck. He won’t come in by himself. Oh, now he’s barking! You know Doodle! He never barks outside!
Me: Doodle? What’s wrong, boy? Why are you standing in the middle of the yard barking? Come here.
Doodlebug: I can’t.
Me: Why not? Come on in.
Doodlebug: Don’t you see them? I’m being bombed. Whoa! There goes another one! Make them go away!
Me: Okay. You are all right. Follow me. Those are just big green beetles. This is their time to buzz around. They don’t sting. They just fly fast and they’re really round. Don’t be afraid.
Doodlebug: Whoa! They are swooping down! They are going to eat me!
Me: No, they won’t, not even a nibble. Keep walking with me.
Doodlebug: What if they land on me?
Me: I’ll brush them off. They don’t get to fool with my Doodlebug.
Doodlebug: I’ll keep barking until we are safe inside. That will shake their world. Silly buzz monsters.
