I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. The Night of Human Craziness has ended. So says Lady Human and she should know because she is a human. I am still a little afraid to go outside tonight. It is in the dark that the humans act out the most.
Me: Don’t worry. I won’t let you go out by yourself.
Stella: You heard it last night, didn’t you? You heard the weird human voice.
Me: I did.
Stella: All I needed to do was go potty. I know it was late. Everyone else was asleep. And then I heard that noise in the darkness. It scared me. I ran back to the house.
Me: And I was there and let you in. You were moving pretty fast.
Stella: What was the human saying? Why was he shouting?
Me: I won’t repeat what he was saying. He was shouting a word that we consider to be very vulgar. He was shouting at the top of his voice.
Stella: Will he be back tonight?
Me: No, I don’t think so.
Stella: Why would he do that? It broke the quiet of the night.
Me: Well, his shouting and the cannon boom of the fireworks and some people heard gunfire. I guess I missed it. I had fallen asleep.
Stella: You slept through all that.
Me: You did, too. All except the shouting man.
Stella: I hope he sleeps tonight.
Me: I do, too. He had to be tired.
Stella: So why do humans complain about dogs barking? At least we don’t use ugly words.
