I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. What’s wrong with Doodle?
Me: Oh, he’s been scratching a spot on his neck.
Doodlebug: Itchy! Itchy! Itchy!
Me: Hold still while I spray this on it.
Doodlebug: Itchy! Itchy!
Me: Help me help you, boy!
Doodlebug: Oh, all right. Spray your nasty stuff.
Stella: It will feel better even if it is an awful shade of purple.
Me: This works fast. Here goes.
Doodlebug: Eewww! Noooo!
Me: No. Let it dry for a minute. You are slinging it everywhere!
Stella: Look at all those ugly purple spots on the floor. Just like rain drops.
Doodlebug: Uh. That’s better. Nap time.
Me: Don’t worry. I’ll clean it up.
Stella: Oh, I’m not worried about that in the least. Go right ahead.
