I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human! Quick! Call the humans who wear shiny metal on their shirts! Someone has stolen a big hunk of our yard!
Me: I can explain…
Wiggles: Lady Human! I can’t get to my potty spot! What am I going to do?
Me: You’ve still got the whole rest of the yard for your business.
Miss Sweetie: But there is a tall fence around my best sunbathing spot!
Me: There are plenty of other sunbath places, girl.
Tiger: I don’t like it. A whole bunch of our land is gone.
Me: No, not gone. Just fenced off for a while.
Doodlebug: But why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?
Me: Doodle! Enough.
Doodlebug: Oh, okay.
Me: Tall Man wants to plant a little garden this spring. To see if we can’t grow some vegetables. We’ve done it before, but not since you all came.
Stella: Great! But why fence it off?
Me: So it will not be trampled by your big bulldog feet.
Tiger: No, we wouldn’t do something like that.
Stella: What kind of meat will it grow?
Me: Meat doesn’t grow in gardens.
Stella: Awwww. Well fine then. Keep it fenced off. We are no longer interested.
