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.
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.
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.
