I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am tired.
Me: Me, too.
Wiggles: Let me at ‘em!
Me: Wiggles, I don’t see how you can still be so wound up. All I want to do is take a nap.
Wiggles: Those loud, banging, noisy noise-making humans and all their loud, banging, noisy noise…
Me: And all your own barking. You know I don’t allow barking outside after dark and there you were begging to go out and I relented and the minute you got into the center of the yard, here comes the bark.
Wiggles: But only one, Lady Human, and I came right back to you. I couldn’t let them get by with it without saying something. Somebody had to tell them to shut up!
Me: So, why have you been barking so much today? There are no fireworks.
Wiggles: Fair warning to them! I’m listening. And I’ll be happy to drown out their noise with my own if they try it again tonight.
