Be Sure to Wash My Rhinoceros – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.

Me:        And…

Stella:    And what?

Me:        That is all?

Stella:    Oh, yes. Hello, human population!

Me:        I’m surprised at the short intro.

Stella:    Queens do not need long introductions. The word ‘Queen’ should be enough.

Me:        Then why do you use long introductions most of the time?

Stella:    I like the way the words sound. They are pretty and they are all about me.

Snoopey:  And we all get tired of hearing them.

Stella:    Hey, make up your own words. Leave mine alone. And by the way, leave my toys alone, too.

Snoopey:  Finders, keepers; losers, too bad.

Stella:    Lady Human, Snoopey slobbered on my rhinoceros! Nasty! Fix him!

Me:        Your rhino will be fine.

Stella:    No! Germs! Bulldog germs which are stronger than any other germs! Worse than that – they are Snoopey’s germs!

Snoopey:  Ha! Ha!

Stella:    Wash my rhinoceros, Lady Human!

Me:        I’ll get around to it.

Stella:    No, now! Use some of that stinky stuff you put in the loud water machine so my rhino won’t get sick from Snoopey Super Germs.

Me:        Play with one of your other chew toys.


Stella:    My other chew toys are sticks. They have no personality. What must a bulldog do to get good service around here?

Me:        Get a butler.

Stella:    I thought I already had.
