No, Stephen is not a dog much more a person. But if I had that name I would be offended. Why should I be not allowed to enter the house? Unless of course if I am a member of the dreaded Akyat-Bahay Gang which, as far as I've known, will get into the house no matter how inhospitable the hosts are. I have to admit I am quite confused actually. Was it your step-in, honey? Sounds like they are referring to that. Mga Pinoy talaga, nakakatuwa!
