The Bluebonnet Jaunt Part 1 – Conversations with Stella and the Pack


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Where are we going? Where are we going? Hurry! Hurry! Hurry! Times a’wastin’!

Tiger:  Me, too! I have a harness!

Me:  Sorry, girl. This one is just going to be me and Stella. That’s about all I can handle today. Next time… if you are able to behave around other dogs.

Tiger:  Awww.

Me:  Now let me finish getting ready. We’ll leave in a few minutes. Here. Let’s get your safety harness on. Stella. Stella!

Tall Man:  Let me help.

Me:  She is truly excited.

Stella:  We’re going! Wait! Where are we going?

Me:  We are going to a bluebonnet spot that I know about. The bluebonnets should be in full bloom. They peak around San Jacinto Day.

Stella:  Why?

Me:  I don’t know. Maybe in honor of San Jacinto Day.

Stella:  Let’s go! Let’s go!

Me:  I’ll make sure we have what we need. It’s not that far away.

Miss Sweetie:  I think we should go, too.

Doodlebug:  There is not enough room in her rolling box for all of us.

Wiggles:  I will take a nap.

Tiger:  What are bluebonnets? Can we eat them?

Stella:  Ah-ooooo! Ah-ooooo! Ah-ooooooooo!

Me:  What’s going on? Stella! Is that you howling?

Stella:  Ah-ooooo! You put my harness on. Once you do that, you have to take me wherever you are going.

Me:  We are going now. Come on. Here’s the leash.

Stella:  Come on. Hurry! Before somebody else eats all the bluebonnets.

Me:  Eats?
