I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human loves me. I always do what she says because she wants the best for me.
Stella: Whereas Wiggles…
Wiggles: I do what I want. Except when I don’t. Then I do something else. And that’s what I want.
Me: And right now, you need to come inside. It’s too hot out here. It’s 96 degrees but feels like 101.
Wiggles: Feels fine to me.
Me: Then why are you panting?
Wiggles: I am not panting. I am just breathing loudly.
Stella: You see?
Me: Come on. Let’s go inside.
Wiggles: I like it here.
Stella: So stubborn.
Me: Okay. I’ll have to put the lead on you. I can’t let you stay out here.
Wiggles: I do what I want.
Me: There. It’s on.
Me: You don’t mind?
Wiggles: When you put the lead on me, it makes me feel loved. Like a giant necklace of love. So, now, because of the love necklace, I have to do what you want.
