Strike a Pose – Conversations with Stella


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Yeah, me! Look at this! And this! Now I’ll do it this way. And this…

Me:  Stella, you are a hoot!

Stella:  No, I am a bulldog.

Me:  I mean, you are funny. What are you doing?

Stella:  I am a queen. Queens know how to strike a pose. Like those humans on the Picture Box. So now I stand like this. And now I stand like that.

Me:  Well, you look good. And funny. But why are you doing it?

Stella:  Isn’t it obvious?

Me:  Maybe to you. Not to me.

Stella:  It is so the other bulldogs will appreciate me and admire me.

Me:  Uh, the others seem to be napping.

Stella:  They’re pretending. They’ve got their eyes on me. So, I hop around like this. And sit like this. And stand like that.

Me:  I find your poses highly entertaining. At least I’m watching. How about if I strike a pose, too?

Stella:  What? No. This is my thing. Lady Human, I am suddenly quite tired. I think I will take a nap. Go pose if you like. Nobody will be watching.
