I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Me: And I have a serious question.
Stella: Permission is granted for you to ask your question, silly or serious.
Me: Why all the insane barking?
Stella: Sorry, Lady Human. Your question makes no sense.
Me: Sort of like y’all’s barking this afternoon. Every time I turned around…
Stella: And you turn around quite a lot.
Me: Barking, barking, barking. And there was no reason for it.
Stella: Says who?
Me: I could not see one thing going on that would provoke so much noise.
Stella: Ah, there. You said it. You could not see, but could you smell it?
Me: Smell what?
Me: Exactly? What?
Stella: How can I explain what you cannot smell? Bulldog barking is never insane. Bulldogs are reasonable creatures.
Me: Reasonable creatures? Hmmm.
Stella: Don’t worry, Lady Human. We don’t bark like that every day. You know that. Maybe tomorrow will smell less interesting.
