Ankle Hugger – Conversations with Stella


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Knock, knock.

Me:  Who’s there?

Stella:  You know who. Hello.

Me:  Oh, okay, just come on in then.

Stella:   I did. Don’t you see me standing here? I like your little potty room.

Me:  You don’t usually come in here. But lately, you have been a veritable ankle hugger.

Stella:  I just want to know where you are.

Me:  Every moment?

Stella:  The humans are acting up. We are tense. I feel better when you are near me. It makes me feel like things are normal.

Me:  Folks are a little tense right now. I didn’t think about how sensitive you all are. I should have known that you would feel it.

Stella:  Please look into my big brown bulldog eyes and tell me that you know what will happen, that you understand it all, and that everything will be all right.

Me:  Stella, girl, I am looking into your big brown bulldog eyes. I do not know what will happen. I do not understand it all. But faith in the Great Creator tells me that everything will be all right. Does that help you?

Stella:  Yes. That’s why yours are my favorite ankles to hug.

Me:  So, we are going to keep meeting in here like this.

Stella:  Oh, yes.
