I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. You sneaked out on us again, Lady Human.
Wiggles: Yeah, I can smell the food all over you.
Miss Sweetie: You ate without us? Awww.
Doodlebug: Now I feel sad. And hungry.
Me: Here’s your food.
Stella: Where did you go?
Me: I met a friend of mine for dinner.
Stella: Aren’t we your friends, too?
Me: Sure, but…
Wiggles: But we are not good enough friends to eat with you at a human food place. Awww.
Me: Can you imagine me walking into a restaurant with 4 bulldogs?
Miss Sweetie: I can.
Doodlebug: Me, too. I can see it now in my big bulldog mind.
Miss Sweetie: What’s a restaurant? Can I go?
Me: Come on, y’all. Be reasonable.
Stella: Reasonable? You’ve forgotten who you’re talking to.
