I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. What are you doing to yourself, Lady Human?
Me: Painting my nails.
Stella: Are those like my toenails?
Me: Yeah, but human nails are flat compared to dog nails.
Stella: That is so weird. And it smells funny.
Me: That’s the nail color.
Stella: Why are you doing it?
Me: I don’t do it often, but every once in a while, I like to try something new. A new color. Or a new nail treatment. Today was that once in a while.
Stella: May I lick them?
Me: No. At least not until the polish dries fully. You don’t want this stuff in your mouth.
Stella: Will you do that to my nails?
Me: With the way you lick on them and chew on them? No way.
Stella: Don’t you chew and lick on your nails?
Me: Not anymore. I did sometimes when I was a kid.
Stella: Well, all I can say is that you are missing out on a special treat.
