I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Every night, Lady Human and I share a snack before bed. Sometimes she gives me a cracker. Sometimes she gives me little round crunchy things that have no name that I can pronounce. But the best thing of all is when she gives me CHEESE!!!
Me: Shhh!! Not so loud!!
Me: Because you are the only one with whom I share cheese.
Stella: Is that because you are stingy or because I am special.
Me: How could it be because I am stingy? I am sharing very expensive cheese with you. I don’t even like sharing it with myself. And they don’t always have it at the store. I have to wait for it to come in.
Stella: So, you are stingy.
Me: Hey, who’s getting cheese?
Me: Right. Don’t tell the others.
Stella: What if they smell it on my breath?
Me: Leave ‘em guessing where you got it.
Stella: Don’t be surprised if they start tearing up the yard looking for my source.
Me: How would that be different from the way they act in the yard now?
