The Spookiest Month Is About To Begin

Chaplin: “You’re overreacting. This is clearly one of Dennis’s old stuffies that he shredded.”
Charlee: “But where did it come from? How did it get here? Is it seeking revenge on Dennis? Will there be more of them?”
Chaplin: “Maybe one of the new dogs found it in the yard and brought it inside.”

Charlee: “Well all right, I guess that makes sense …”
Lulu: “Excuse me, did you just lump me in with Bean as ‘one of the new dogs’?”
Chaplin: “Yes. You’re both the new dogs.”
Lulu: “I’ve been here since 2019!”
Chaplin: “Be that as it may, you’re not Dennis and we were here first. Hence, new dog.”

Charlee: “Where did you and Bean find Dennis’s old shredded stuffie, anyway?”
Lulu: “I’ve never seen that thing before in my life and neither has Bean. We did find a hole in the yard, though. Maybe it dug itself out and came in here seeking revenge. And since Dennis isn’t here anymore, but it probably remembers you, well …”

Later …

Java Bean: “I thought I heard you talking to the cats. Where did they go?”
Lulu: “For some reason, they’re afraid of that old shredded stuffie you found in the yard and brought into the house.”
