I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am in a rolling box. I think we are going to see the lady in the white coat, the one Lady Human calls ‘vet’.
Me: No, we are not going to the vet.
Stella: Now I am really confused.
Me: As I told you, we are going on a jaunt, a short trip, to see bluebonnets. Flowers that bloom wild in the spring. And no, you may not eat them.
Stella: We are not alone. Look at all these rolling boxes Look at those monstrous rolling boxes.
Stella: Yay! We are all going to look at bluebonnets.
Me: No, most of these other people are going different places.
Stella: Then why are they going along with us? The big rolling boxes are scary.
Me: They are carrying things we all need. Like your food.
Stella: In that case, they can stay on the road with us. Look! There are flowers!
Me: Yes, pink, yellow, purple, orange.
Stella: Where are our bluebonnets?
Me: Just up ahead. We are coming up on the exit now.
Stella: This is a great place, Lady Human. I smell meat. Wonderful.
Me: Yes, there’s a barbecue place right over here where we will park and… What?
Me: It’s gone. It’s all gone.
Stella: The barbecue meat? Gone? Horrible! Horrible!
Me: No, the barbecue is still here.
Stella: Oh, you had me scared there for a minute.
Me: I mean the bluebonnets are gone. All gone. And in their place…
Me: A new fast food hamburger place.
Stella: With meat? Wonderful! What a great jaunt this is! Let’s do this all the time!
