Bulldog Reveille – Conversations with Stella and the Pack

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. It is a dark and non-stormy night.

Me:        Excuse me. It is 6 o’clock in the morning.

Stella:    It is dark outside. Why is it dark outside? Where is the sun? Why did you wake me up at this unreasonable hour?

Me:        I did not wake you up at this unreasonable hour. You woke me up.

Stella:    Why did I wake you up at this unreasonable hour? Oh, I remember. Potty.

Doodlebug:        Breakfast call! Breakfast call! Breakfast call!

Me:        Okay, I hear you, Doodle.

Doodlebug:        Breakfast call! Breakfast call! Breakfast call!

Me:        All right, Doodle! I hear you!

Doodlebug:        Breakfast call! Breakfast…

Stella:    Potty call comes first! Coming through! Running out!

Me:        Here’s your breakfast. And your breakfast. And your breakfast. And your breakfast. And Stella’s breakfast.

Tiger:     Why are we eating in the dark?

Me:        Ask Stella and Doodlebug.

Tiger:     Doodle, why did call breakfast so early?

Doodlebug:        My stomach said it was the right thing to do.

Miss Sweetie:    But I don’t want to potty in the dark.

Me:        Then just run outside and run back in. The outside light is on.

Wiggles:    It’s no different than pottying in the sun, Sweetie. The landmarks are all the same.

Tiger:     Doodlebug should not be calling breakfast. I should be.

Wiggles:   If we waited for that, Tiger, we would never have breakfast.

Doodlebug:        Besides, my voice is bigger because my head is bigger.

Me:        Doodle, do you realize that about 2 weeks ago, it would have been 5 o’clock in the morning right now instead of 6 a.m.?

Doodlebug:        No.

Me:        What I mean is you are going the wrong way. Breakfast is getting earlier and earlier.

Doodlebug:        Earlier breakfast. That doesn’t sound wrong to me.
