I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human has fallen into a bad habit. She speaks to us as though we are babies.
Me: I do not.
Stella: “Time to go out. Go pooh-pooh, pee-pee.” Sounds like silly baby talk to me. When you open the door, don’t you think that we know what to do outside?
Me: Uh, well, what I’ve noticed is that sometimes you all get to playing around and exploring and then you forget to get your business done.
Stella: “Business”? What is “business”?
Me: That’s what my very polite father called bathroom matters.
Stella: That’s strange. I thought ‘business’ is what humans say they do when they go to those mysterious places you call ‘work’.
Me: It’s both, I guess.
Stella: I like your father’s word. No more baby talk. Just call it ‘business’. We get the idea.
