Mindless Barking – Conversations with Stella and the Pack


Me:   Okay. It’s 6 a.m. I am not ready to get up. That is not in my schedule. Tiger is barking incessantly, rhythmically. I give up. I have to put a stop to this. Hey, what’s going on?

Stella:  I’ll just stay in bed, thank you.

Me:   As you wish. Hey, Tiger, what’s the deal?

Tiger:   Deal?

Me:   Why the barking? It’s too early.

Tiger:   I don’t know. Ask Sweetie. She started it.

Me:   Sweetie, what’s going on?

Miss Sweetie:   I heard a noise.

Me:   What type of noise?

Miss Sweetie:   A human noise from out there.

Me:   Why is that your business?

Miss Sweetie:   Everything is my business.

Me:   Okay, stop the mindless barking.

Miss Sweetie:   What is mindless barking?

Me:   Barking that has no mind or thought behind it.

Miss Sweetie:   I don’t have a mind or thought.

Doodlebug:   I told you so, Lady Human. That’s Sweetie. That’s the way she is.

Wiggles:   Is it time for breakfast?

Me:   No.

Wiggles:   Then everybody, go back to sleep!

Stella:   Too late. Already there.
