The Concrete Back Rub – Conversations with Stella and Wiggles


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am a dignified animal, except when I am scratching my rear end on the patio, but I will not talk about that here.

Wiggles:  I will. Stella scratches her rear end on the patio.


Stella:  Hush your mouth!

Wiggles:  As a matter of fact, I am celebrating the arrival of spring, as Lady Human calls it, by using the hard patio as a back rub. Mmmm, feels so good. Dry and warm.

Me:  That’s great! Wiggles is wiggling on her back on the concrete!

Wiggles:  Hey, I wiggles standing up and I wiggles walking around and I wiggles on my back. That’s why everybody calls me ‘Wiggles’. Yay me!

Stella:  Stop it! You look ridiculous!

Wiggles:  Maybe. Maybe. But my back feels good.

Stella:  Make her stop, Lady Human.

Me:  She’s not doing anything wrong. It won’t hurt her.

Stella:  No, but just watching her is making me feel itchy all over. Especially my rear end which…I must…scratch on the concrete now.

Wiggles:  This concrete is great. Who invented this stuff? Must have been an itchy bulldog.
