Joint Ownership – Conversations with Sweetie

Sweetie: MINE! MINE! MINE! Don’t park on my chair!

Me: Your chair? Excuse me?

Sweetie: You are excused, Lady Human. You may go park yourself in the other room.

I am Doodlebug, King of the Olde English Bulldogges, but I am staying out of this. I’ll let you girls sort this out between you.

Me: This chair is and always has been mine. I don’t mind you using it, Sweetie, but you must let me onto it so I have a place to sit in here.

Sweetie: We don’t both fit on it at the same time.

Me: Now that is a true statement.

Sweetie: Maybe you should lose some weight.

Me: I beg your pardon?

Sweetie: Granted.

Me: We are going to have to agree to share.

Sweetie: Share? I don’t like the sound of that. That doesn’t sound very bulldoggy.

Tell Tale Scents – Conversations with Doodlebug and Sweetie

I am Doodlebug, King of the Olde English Bulldoggess. Someone is hiding something.

Sweetie: Yep. The scent is faint but real. It is…it is…IT IS CHEESE! Lady Human?

Me: Hmmm?

Doodlebug: You are sneaking cheese.

Me: Whatever do you mean?

Sweetie: Yup. A clear sign of guilt.

Me: Guilt? For eating a tiny piece of cheese?

Doodlebug: Tiny, huh! We’ve seen your cheese chunks before. Tiny for an elephant maybe.

Sweetie: You are guilty of not sharing. I hereby sentence you to share your cheese or else.

Me: Or else what?

Sweetie: Or else we won’t share our treats with you.

Me: Uhb…okay.

Doodlebug: I told you, Sweetie. We need better bargaining skills.
