I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. This next rule…
Wiggles: No, no, no!
Miss Sweetie: Go on! Rules are fun. I don’t know what they are, but they make me laugh.
Stella: Don’t stick your head in the big cold box in the kitchen. The humans are sensitive about all the stuff they have in there and they think our noses and drool mess up their food.
Wiggles: This is the most selfish rule yet!
Stella: Is that because your big old face is the one that pushes its way in there most often?
Wiggles: Well, it does smell interesting. And it makes a cool breeze. And they keep treasure in it.
Doodlebug: What treasure?
Wiggles: Eggs. Shhh! Don’t tell them that I know. I don’t want them to take the eggs away. Every once in a long while, an egg will jump out and I can capture it.
Stella: You mean you gobble it up.
Wiggles: Same difference.
Stella: But a rule is a rule.
Stella: Shhhh! Snatch all the stray eggs you can. Just keep your big ole bulldog face out of the ice box.
