Not a Good Imitation – Conversations with Doodlebug and Sweetie

I am Doodlebug, King of the Olde English Bulldogges.

Me: Ruff! Ruff! Ruff!

Doodlebug: What does that mean, Lady Human? That doesn’t even make any sense, bulldog or otherwise.

Me: I am just imitating what I heard you all doing this morning.

Sweetie: That is not a good imitation, ma’am. First of all, you are not a bulldog, so the voice is all wrong. Next, there is no sincere heart-felt complaint in it. When we grumble, we mean it.

Me: I couldn’t tell what y’all meant. Humans have a old saying though. “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”

Doodlebug: What is flattery? It sounds interesting, like something to eat maybe?

Sweetie: But if it isn’t, we aren’t really interested. Old bulldog saying: “If it’s not food, it’s not worth our time.”
