I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. That was awesome. Did you hear us, Lady Human?
Me: How could anyone not hear you?
Stella: Why are you put out? We did not bark at the little human pup…okay, not puppy.
Me: But you did at our other visitor.
Tiger: Who was he? I don’t remember seeing him before.
Me: You have, but it was a long time ago.
Wiggles: He did not smell familiar to me.
Me: His name is Raj and I think you overwhelmed him a little.
Doodlebug: Good. That means we did our job as bulldogs.
Miss Sweetie: He seemed nice. That’s why I used my big barking voice so he would feel welcome.
Me: Did you see how fast he backed out of the room?
Miss Sweetie: Because we were wonderfully overwhelming?
Me: I wouldn’t attach the word ‘wonderfully’ to that.
Stella: Who was this visitor?
Me: I told you. His name is Raj. He is Tall Man’s friend. They are working on Raj’s computer.
Stella: So, he brought us food.
Me: No. Computers are not food.
Stella: Did he bring us toys?
Stella: He must have brought us treats.
Stella: Then why did he come?
Me: I told you.
Stella: Computer? That makes no sense. That has nothing to do with us.
Me: Not everything is about you.
Stella: Just as I said. Nonsense.
