Shhh. They're sleeping now...In the big, square house live the two circle dogs. When the sun comes up and the baby cries, the circle dogs wake up. With a flip-flap of their tails, they're ready to play in a big square yard. They like to eat and take a nap. Then it's time to play again. And when night comes, the circle dogs like to sleep and sleep and sleep. Shhh...
