I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. The humans are up to something. They have been very active. New smells are entering the house and no, they are not from stuff we bulldogs caused. I think they have another one of those holiday things coming.
Me: Is there something wrong with celebrating holidays?
Stella: Not if we are included.
Me: You all are always included.
Stella: No, we aren’t.
Me: Toys. Treats. Food.
Stella: What about the GOOD food? Where is that?
Me: You always get good food.
Stella: What about that thing you were eating a while ago?
Me: Oh. That was homemade fudge. You can’t have that.
Stella: And you can?
Me: Well, a little bit, now and then. I don’t overdo it.
Stella: It had peanut butter in it. Don’t lie to my nose!
Me: It also had cocoa in it.
Stella: Sounds delicious.
Me: Cocoa equals chocolate equals not for dogs.
Stella: A likely story. That doesn’t explain what you had for supper.
Me: Those were tortellini.
Stella: Sounds delicious. They had cheese in them. My nose knows.
Me: They also had a good dose of garlic in them and garlic is not good for dogs.
Stella: Lady Human, I think you are making these rules up as you go.
