I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human!
Stella: Lady Human! Pound. Pound. Pound.
Me: Oh, Stella. Why? I’m trying to take a nap.
Stella: No! You must pay attention to me! Pound. Pound. Pound.
Me: Please don’t pound me with your paws.
Stella: That’s what bulldog paws are for.
Me: I thought they were for walking and running and digging. And for scratching.
Stella: Wrong. Your hands are for scratching us.
Me: I was up half the night. I just want a little nap.
Stella: Napping is for bulldogs! Pound. Pound. Pound.
Me: Stella, please! When I cover my shoulders with the sheet and hide my hands, that means sleep time, not petting or scratching time. See! My hands are all tucked in.
Stella: I like your face.
Me: Thank you.
Stella: Here. Let me pound it.
