Bulldog Census – Conversations with Stella and the Pack


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human, whatcha doin’?

Me:  Oh, filling out the Census. It’s just a form we complete every ten years.

Stella:  I am not ten years old yet.

Me:  Nope.

Tiger:  What is census? Can we eat it?

Me:  No, it is not edible. It is the way the government has of keeping count of everyone.

Miss Sweetie:  Ooooo! Ooooo! Count me! Count me!

Doodlebug:  Me, too! Don’t forget me!

Wiggles:  Was I counted last time?

Me:  No. None of you were here with us back then. In fact, none of you were on the earth ten years ago.

Stella:  We got left off the census. Put me down as an Olde English Bulldogge, beautiful and of royal lineage.

Tiger:  Don’t lie to the government.

Me:  Actually, there is no place on the form for listing or counting pets.

Doodlebug:  What?

Miss Sweetie:  No way!

Wiggles:  Not fair!

Tiger:  Don’t we count? No, I guess not.

Stella:  Typical humans! Thinking only of themselves!

Me:  It’s not a big deal, y’all. It’s not like you get anything from them.

Stella:  What? No treats? No special food? No toys?

Me:  Nope.

Stella:  Never mind.
