Me: Beau. You’re hogging the bed.
Beau: Actually, Louise. I’m dawging it.
Me: Very funny Beau. Whatever you want to call it, you’re not leaving any room for Martha.
Beau: Who’s Martha?
Me: Haha. So we’ve got attitude this morning do we?
Beau: I don’t know, Louise. I’m fine. Do you?
Me: No, Beau. I don’t but I think you do.
Beau: Then why did you say, ‘we’ve’ got attitude.
Me: (sigh) You can be so pedantic sometimes, Beau.
Beau: (smiling oh so sweetly) Don’t you mean… pawdantic?
Me: (turning my sigh into a groan) Beau! Don’t be obtuse. You’re not leaving any room for Martha on the bed.
Beau: It’s not her bed.
Me: She’s a guest.
Beau: And who invited her?
Me: That’s not the point. We treat our guests with loving care. No matter who invited then.
Beau: There you go with the ‘we’ again, Louise. Bottomline. You invited her. Why don’t you give up your space on the bed?
Me: (sigh) Because we all live here and she’s only here for 10 days while her mom and dad are in Mexico.
Beau: Oh well. In that case, I will take pity on her. I understand her plight and how lonely she must be feeling.
Me: She’s not lonely Beau. She’s got you and C.C. and me to keep her company.
Beau: All of that may be true Louise, but, as a dawg who has endless experience of his hooman abandoning him whenever she feels like gallivanting off to the coast or some other unknown distant destination, I have lived experience of how traumatic it is to be left behind.
Me: You know I don’t ‘leave you behind’ because I want to when I go visit The Littles on the coast, right? You know I’m not abandoning you Beau? It’s for your own good. Travel for a dawg can be even more traumatic than having to stay home.
Beau: How would I know? You never take me.
Sigh. As always, Beau gets the last word and I am once again reminded of my shortcomings. Sigh.
Smiling smugly, he closes his eyes and goes back to sleep.
Oh well. At least he let my daughter’s beautiful and endearing 2 year old LabraDoodle on the bed.
He doesn’t like to share all the time only when he feels like it
