I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Bulldogs, come to order.
Doodlebug: Unheard of!
Wiggles: Won’t happen.
Miss Sweetie: Is Lady Human ordering for me? I will take a hamburger with no green stuff.
Stella: No, Sweetie. This is our rules convention, remember. Rule number 2 – no pooping or peeing in the house. Actually, I agree with this one. The house is not a potty.
Tiger: Why do the humans have potties inside then?
Wiggles: Their house, their rules.
Doodlebug: I think we should keep this rule.
Tiger: Inconvenient. What about when it rains like today. Or when it’s dark and scary.
Miss Sweetie: Can I still get my hamburger?
Me: What’s this conference about?
Stella: It is not a conference. It is a convention. That is better. We are deciding if we should poop and pee inside or outside.
Me: Outside, absolutely, all the time.
Stella: But we get to vote.
Me: Vote all you want. The rule is outside.
Stella: But you can’t stop our vote.
Me: No, but just for fun, I can veto it.
Stella: Wait. V…O…T…E and V…E…T…O. That is a human trick. You just switched the letters up.
Me: When did you start spelling?
Stella: When I had to start keeping up with human tricks.
