Toenail Tally – Conversations with Stella and the Pack


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. What are you scratching on that paper, Lady Human?

Me:   A tally. Marks that keep count. Come here a second.

Stella:    What are you…hey!

Me:   Okay. That’s two on your front left foot.

Stella:    Oh, no, you don’t!

Me:   How about you, Wiggles? Here. It just takes a couple of minutes…

Wiggles:   What was that? Oh, no, no, no…

Me:   Okay, that’s three on your right hind leg. Progress.

Miss Sweetie:   Is this that fun game where you grab my feet and I jerk them away and wrestle you?

Me:   It sure is, Sweetie.

Miss Sweetie:   I love that game!

Me:   Me, too! Let’s play! One, two, three, four…woo hoo! One whole foot done!

Miss Sweetie:   Now I get my reward. I jump in your lap! Woo hoo!

Tiger:   I want to do that!

Me:   Okay, let me trim your nails.

Tiger:   Nope.

Me:   How about you, Doodle?

Doodlebug:   Nope. My nails are fine.

Miss Sweetie:   Here I am again, Lady Human! Grab a foot and hold on for dear life! Yee haw!
