I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am no fool.
Me: No, you are not, but why are you saying so?
Stella: I know when to come in out of the sun.
Tiger: Me, too.
Me: I’ve noticed that. Humans have an old saying about common sense – the sense to come in out of the rain.
Stella: Humans are foolish. Never go out in the rain!
Tiger: Yes, if it is raining, stay inside!
Stella: Now the sun is a different matter because the sun can make things hot.
Tiger: Never stay out in the heat.
Me: Okay, I’ll keep that in mind.
Stella: Of course, that is a good rule for bulldogs, Lady Human. We don’t really care if humans stay out in the sun.
Tiger: Yeah, stay out as long as you want.
Me: Okay, I’ll keep that in mind as well.
Stella: But wear a hat.
Tiger: Yes, wear a hat. Humans look funny with hats on.
Stella: Once again, as rare as it is, Tiger and I agree. Wear a hat so we can laugh at you, Lady Human.
Me: You know, I have a few hats for dogs…
Stella: Don’t even think that!
