Land Grab – Conversations with Stella and the Pack


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.

Me:  Uh-huh.

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.
