I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Tiger: Not so far as I am concerned!
Stella: What are you saying? Why are you all the way out there?
Me: Come on, Tiger! Come on back in!
Stella: She’s not saying anything.
Me: Why is she sitting there, staring?
Stella: What are you doing, Tiger?
Stella: Watching what? There’s nothing to see through that fence.
Tiger: Because I am watching.
Me: You have to come back in sometime.
Stella: Why are you watching over there?
Tiger: Someone has to. Wait! What’s that noise? Who’s there? Run! Run!
Me: I’ll check. Get inside.
Tiger: No! You must not go by yourself!
Stella: Humans can take care of themselves.
Tiger: No, they need us.
Me: It’s all right. A big truck rumbling down the road. That’s all.
Tiger: How can you be so brave? I am so afraid all the time.
Me: But you were sitting out by the edge of the fence all by yourself. That was brave.
Tiger: Was it?
Me: Sure. You don’t see me sitting out there, do you?
Tiger: I’ll be happy to it anytime for you, Lady Human. Only…
Tiger: Can you keep the back door open for me to run in, just in case?
