Rules of the House – Part Two – Conversations with Stella and the Pack


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Bulldogs, come to order.

Tiger:  Ridiculous!

Doodlebug: Unheard of!

Wiggles:  Won’t happen.

Miss Sweetie:  Is Lady Human ordering for me?  I will take a hamburger with no green stuff.

Stella:  No, Sweetie. This is our rules convention, remember. Rule number 2 – no pooping or peeing in the house. Actually, I agree with this one. The house is not a potty.

Tiger:  Why do the humans have potties inside then?

Wiggles:  Their house, their rules.

Doodlebug:  I think we should keep this rule.

Tiger:  Inconvenient. What about when it rains like today. Or when it’s dark and scary.

Miss Sweetie:  Can I still get my hamburger?

Me:  What’s this conference about?

Stella:  It is not a conference. It is a convention. That is better. We are deciding if we should poop and pee inside or outside.

Me:  Outside, absolutely, all the time.

Stella:  But we get to vote.

Me:  Vote all you want. The rule is outside.

Stella:  But you can’t stop our vote.

Me:  No, but just for fun, I can veto it.

Stella:  Wait. V…O…T…E and V…E…T…O. That is a human trick. You just switched the letters up.

Me:  When did you start spelling?

Stella:  When I had to start keeping up with human tricks.
