I Don’t Like That Kinda Talk! – Conversations with Stella and the Pack


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human wants to talk. As usual.

Me:  We are going to be nail trimming for the next few days.

Tiger:  I dare say we will not!

Wiggles:  Fat chance!

Doodlebug:  I don’t need my nails trimmed. Look! I wore them down outside.

Miss Sweetie:  Yay, nail trimming! Wait. What is nail trimming?

Stella:  Oh, Sweetie. Look, Lady Human, I don’t like that kinda talk! So, stop talking.

Me:  It has to be done sometime. The weather is going to be slightly cooler the next few days.

Tiger:  How much cooler?

Me:  As in not in the upper 90s.

Tiger:  If that means what I think it means, not good enough.

Me:  Come on, y’all! Think of it as a game.

Stella:  If we chewed off your toenails, would you think of that as a game?

Me:  I can trim my own nails. You can’t trim yours.

Stella:  Maybe the Great Creator wanted it that way. Maybe nail trimming dogs is just another example of human…

Tiger:  Arrogance.

Wiggles:  Domination.

Doodlebug:  Willfulness.

Miss Sweetie:  Stupidity. I call it ‘human dumbness’.

Stella:  I’ll leave it at this – I don’t like that kinda talk.  So, stop talking.
