I am Doodlebug, King of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Sweetie: And I am a beautiful Princess whose beauty sleep has been interrupted two nights in a row. Make them stop, Lady Human.
Doodlebug: Yes, I order that, too! Enough is enough. The booming and banging is out of control.
Me: It has been louder and longer this year, I’ll admit. Not so much a New Year’s celebration as a letting off of steam.
Sweetie: I hear them. There they go again.
Me: Whatever they had left over from last night is being shot off now.
Doodlebug: Humans have no business calling bulldogs loud.
Sweetie: Yeah, we may bark wildly at random hours for no obvious reason, but at least we don’t blow up the sky.
