We put Bella in her cage when we were trying to get Amelia ready for bed, and Amelia sat in front of the cage and cried. She wanted Bella to come out and play. So after Amelia put on her jammies and had her bedtime snack we let Bella out to play a bit. The poor dog spent most of the time hiding behind my feet or Jeff's. She was all played out!
We had Amelia put Bella to bed so we could convince her to go to bed, too. She put Bella in her cage and gave her a treat. Then she sat down in front of the cage and read Bella a book.
Let me interpret a little bit. The book is called "No No, Yes Yes." Amelia's reading about "No no finger up the nose," and "No no eating the puppy food," (really, that's part of the book) and "Yes yes sit on potty," and "No no bonk on the head. Yes yes share toys." Then she tells Bella good night.
What a stitch!
