Stella and I are out on an errand run. It’s always fun traveling with a dog…Ow! Stella, don’t do that!
Stella: Don’t do what?
Me: Don’t hit me with your paw!
Stella: I had to get your attention.
Me: I can’t give you my attention. I am driving.
Stella: You did not introduce me.
Me: I said your name.
Stella: Not good enough.
Me: Ow! Stella, quit it! Don’t touch the driver. Ever.
Stella: Why not?
Me: It is distracting and drivers should not be distracted.
Stella: Not even by those little black boxes that make funny noises?
Me: Especially not by those.
Stella: Then put yours away!
Me: Oh, all right.
Stella: Introduce me!
Me: Ow! Don’t paw me!
Stella: But I love you.
Me: And that’s why you hit me?
Stella: I didn’t hit you. I loved you with my rough, heavy paw.
Me: If you keep it up, I will have to pull over and put you in the backseat.
Stella: I will just paw at you from there. Introduce me.
Me: Stella. Queen. Old English Bulldogge.
Stella: What else?
Me: Illustrious. Noble.
Stella: Thank you. That wasn’t so hard, was it?
Me: You don’t know the challenges of driving.
Stella: Well, at least I am having a good time.
Me: That’s what it’s all about, Stella.
