I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human is saying something that I have never heard her say before.
Me: Dummkopf. MoonCat, how stupid can you be?
Mooncat: Meow. I am just being myself.
Me: When the bulldogs are running in and out, you know how they are. Get in one of your multitude of safe places until they settle down.
Stella: What does it mean? Dummkopf? It sounds nice.
Stella: Lady Human! Did you say a bad word?
Me: Well…sort of…
Stella: For shame, Lady Human! A bad word? Cool! What does it mean? What does it mean?
MoonCat: It means ‘stupid head’.
Me: Since when do you understand German?
MoonCat: I don’t know what you are talking about. By your tone, I figured it couldn’t be good.
Me: Why do you insist on prancing in the middle of the floor when they come roaring in? Do you want them to catch you?
MoonCat: They have only caught me a few times. And I am still here. I have a secret.
Me: Pray tell.
MoonCat: The big, droopy mouth canines and I are friends.
Stella: Nope. No. No. Not true. Don’t listen to her. She’s wrong. Dummkopf. Remember, Lady Human. Dummkopf.
