I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogge. There are some words that people should not use, especially not in our delicate ears or the ears of human puppies. Humans have all kinds of ugly words that they use to insult other humans, insult dogs, insult cats…never mind. Insulting cats is an art form.
Me: Are you saying that there is a bulldog F-word?
Stella: Of course. You’ve heard it. We have discussed it before.
Me: And what, pray tell, is that word?
Stella: You know.
Me: No, I don’t.
Stella: Yes, you do. I told you before. I just didn’t admit that it was like the human F-word.
Me: I don’t remember…
Me: Stella! Really?
Me: Why are you using your F-word at me?
Stella: You asked for it.
Me: Well, yes, but I didn’t think you actually had one.
Stella: Would I lie to you?
Me: I don’t think so.
Stella: So, pffft!
Me: Oh, Stella.
Stella: What’s wrong?
Me: Let me quote my grandmother when she heard a dirty word. “Hush! Ugly talk!”
Stella: Your grandmother must not have been much fun to be around. Pffft!
Me: Stella! Why are you cussing at me?
Stella: I don’t know. Maybe because you don’t do what I want you to do.
Me: Is that a good reason to cuss at someone?
Stella: It’s a reason. Maybe not a good reason. Pffft.
