I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Will someone please stop the noise? Why do humans howl? They don’t like it when we do it.
Me: Howling? Who’s howling?
Stella: You are. And those humans on the Picture Box. Dreadful. Make it stop.
Me: Those people were singing an old song that I know. I was singing along.
Stella: Lady Human, begging your pardon, but that was not singing. It was howling. I should know. Not that I mind howling. It is a lovely sound when it comes from a dog.
Me: Singing is a whole lot more complicated than howling.
Stella: Says the human.
Me: Says the anybody.
Stella: All I am asking is keep it down. Some of us are trying to sleep.
Me: Let me sing you to sleep.
Stella: Like this? Ooooo…wooooo….owwwww!
Me: No. Not like that. Please…
Stella: As I thought. The only taste humans have is in their mouths.
