I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges, and I am freaked out! What just happened?
Me: The biggest, fiercest wind storm I’ve ever seen in person and that includes a couple of hurricanes.
Stella: I can’t see out the backdoor. Lady Human, there is a tree in our patio.
Me: Yeah. The oak tree has been uprooted. The branches are blocking the door. The trunk is leaning against the house.
Tiger: I refuse to share the house with an oak tree.
Me: That tree is 38 or 39 years old. I can’t believe it’s fallen.
Miss Sweetie: Maybe it gave up because Doodlebug is always watering it.
Doodlebug: I like that tree.
Wiggles: Will we ever be able to go out the backdoor again?
Me: Sure. Chainsaws will clear it. I already checked the fence. It appears to be undamaged.
Stella: Now I am sad. The big tree fell. Where will the squirrels live?
Me: Stella, are you really worried about squirrels? I thought they were your nemeses.
Stella: Yes, but that doesn’t mean I wanted their home torn down.
Miss Sweetie: I think Doodle should not water anymore trees.
