I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Humans are the silliest creatures I know, sillier even than squirrels and that is saying a lot.
Me: Why are we silly now?
Stella: I heard what you said earlier.
Me: I said a lot of things earlier. Nobody listened.
Stella: You said one thing that everybody heard.
Me: Oh, yeah. But that was just gibberish.
Stella: Don’t call Bulldoggese gibberish!
Me: I said, “Wah! Wah! Waaahhh!” It was a joke.
Stella: And did you see what happened when you said it?
Me: Wiggles, Snoopey, and Miss Sweetie jumped to their feet. Do you mean…
Stella: They heard, “Get up!” So, they got up.
Me: But you, Doodlebug, and Tiger didn’t move. You didn’t bat an eye.
Stella: I batted an eye. I just didn’t get up. I didn’t want to.
Me: I didn’t know what I was saying. I was just making a funny noise.
Stella: Be careful of your funny noises, Lady Human. In Bulldoggese, you may be telling us to take over your human kingdom.
Me: But you wouldn’t try to do that, would you?
