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.
