I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Oh, my! Lady Human, what is wrong with your coat?
Me: Coat? I’m not wearing a coat.
Stella: That stuff that hangs down from your head. The long, stringy stuff.
Me: Hey, that’s my hair. Humans don’t have coats like dogs do.
Stella: I am sorry.
Me: It’s not a deal with us. We are used to it.
Stella: I am sorry that it looks so weird. Cover it up with that towel thing you wrap around your head.
Me: It’s wet, that’s all. I just finished washing it.
Stella: Is that the reason?
Me: Yes, Stella.
Stella: I am so sorry.
Me: For what? It will dry and then it will look normal.
Stella: Yes, I am sorry about that, too. When we bulldogs bathe or play in water, I think we still look pretty good. But humans…well…just try to stay dry as much as possible.
