I am Stella, Queen of the Old English Bulldogges. Now I rule over a much larger domain than I did a few days ago. There is so much land…
Miss Sweetie: And I can sit so many different places to sunbathe.
Doodlebug: And the shortcut from the patio into the new yard and back into the patio is great!
Me: Well, that’s just because the patio fence had a section demolished by the fallen oak and the insurance didn’t cover that, so we haven’t decided to repair it…
Doodlebug: What’s to decide? It’s perfect the way it is. That tree knew what it was doing when it fell on the patio fence.
Tiger: All I know is that I can go anywhere, and I can see everything. This yard is so much larger than the old one.
Me: Truth be told, this yard is not larger. It is the same old yard. It’s just that the old dead overgrown lamb’s quarter is mostly gone. There is still a lot of work to do around where the oak tree stood.
Wiggles: I can tell a large yard when I see one, Lady Human. I grew up out in the country, remember. This is definitely a bigger yard than the old one.
Me: Okay, glad you all are happy.
Stella: Now all you have to do is knock down the big fence so we can take over the rest of the world .
