The Ole Bribery Ploy – Conversations with Doodlebug and Sweetie

I am Doodlebug, King of the Olde English Bulldogges.

Sweetie: And I am Princess Sweetie.

Doodlebug: Since when?

Sweetie: Since I said so.

Doodlebug: Lady Human, you have forgotten something.

Me: I don’t think so.

Doodlebug: Uh, yes, you have.

Sweetie: Second treat.

Me: Oh, that was just a one time thing. You were so restless last night and I thought a bribe…uh, treat might distract you so you could settle down…

Doodlebug: And it worked.

Me: Well, yeah, it did.

Sweetie: So time for another bribe…uh, treat.

Doodlebug: Yep. Look how jumpy and barky we are. A bribe…uh, treat is just the thing to encourage our cooperation and transition into bedtime mode.

Me: I’ve obviously made a mistake with the treats.

Sweetie: Yes. Yes, you have.

Doodlebug: Bribery is a hard habit to break on both ends. So fork ’em over and none of those cheap leftovers, not that we won’t gobble those up, too.
