I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. And here we go again! Lady Human! It’s dark, like really dark. The sun isn’t even peaking at us.
Me: I know. I’ll take care of him.
Stella: Can you give him one of those timekeepers humans are always checking?
Me: Doodlebug, it’s too early for breakfast. Again.
Doodlebug: My stomach clock cannot be wrong.
Stella: Wanna bet?
Doodlebug: Lady Human, just go ahead with breakfast.
Me: It has set a bad precedent. First, it was 5 a.m. Then it was 4 a.m. Now it’s 3 a.m.
Doodlebug: Right on time! Go ahead with the food, ma’am. You know that’s how it’s going to end up anyhow.
