I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Make it stop!
Me: The noise?
Stella: What else?
Me: It is a power tool that Tall Man uses to cut the boards for the new floor.
Stella: We already have a floor. It’s the one we track mud on all the time.
Me: And it is old. And we can’t fix parts of it. So it must be replaced.
Stella: Why can’t humans replace things silently?
Me: It’s just not in our nature to be quiet all the time. Bulldogs should understand that. And power tools make these jobs easier and faster.
Stella: Are you telling me this because the freaky noise will never stop?
Me: No, the freaky noise will stop when the job is done.
Stella: I declare the job done.
Me: Sorry, it doesn’t work that way.
Stella: Lady Human?
Stella: Never call bulldogs loud again. You clearly have us beat.
