Royal Flush

Vermin: “HISS! Nasty dog! Stop monopolizing the TV! It’s time for my stories! What are you watching, anyway?”
Dennis: “I don’t know what it’s called but it’s a movie about a beagle who becomes the king of England. Also, some girl marries a lumberjack.”

Vermin: “HISS! Silly dog! This isn’t a movie. This is a news program. It’s something that really happened.”
Dennis: “It is?”
Vermin: “Yes! The beagle is a rescue. He was found wandering in the wilderness, and then it turned out he was actually next in line to be the king, and now he’s rich and famous.”

Vermin: “Say, aren’t you a rescue who was found wandering in the wilderness?”
Dennis: “Yes, yes I am.”
Vermin: “I’m pretty sure that means you must be the king, too.”
Dennis: “But the beagle is the king. We can’t both be kings, can we?”
Vermin: “Well the beagle is the king of England, sure, so you must be the king of California.”
Dennis: “But California hasn’t got a king.”
Vermin: “Only because you got dumped out in the wilderness. Obviously the scoundrel who did that was trying to stop you from assuming your rightful throne.”
Dennis: “Hmm, that makes perfect sense to me. How can I get my throne back?”
Vermin: “I’m glad you asked me that. I’ll be more than happy to help put you back where you belong.”

Soon …

Vermin: “Poor Jill. So many mouths to feed, and Jack is no help at all.”

Meanwhile …


Mouse: “Do I even want to know what’s going on in here?”

  1. Dennis will always be King, despite the lowly “throne” he graces, holding court with his box of “Things”.


  2. Hey, Dennis, we have one of those thrones in our house, too. I’m going to have to check into my ancestry. I must be royalty also. But I have no idea where Jan hid my royal robe.


  3. ::::::::::::: Bowing humbly to King Dennis! :::::::::: I love reading about your adventures! (handing you a cookie) 🙂


  4. Dennis, you don’t need a throne to be King with us – you will always reign supreme. King Dennis – has a great ring to it:)

  6. We shall now call you King Dennis! Although based on your name, maybe you are really King Arthur! How cool would THAT be?!? When I’m in the Watery Tub of Doom, I’ll look for tarts throwing swords at people to confirm your kingship!
