Somebody Had to Stand Watch – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.

Me:  What are you doing, girl? Do you want to go outside?

Stella:  Go outside? Noooooo! I’ll just stand here, looking out this clear door. By the way, you may want to clean this sometime. Somebody smeared paw mud on it.

Me:  Yeah, I’ll get around to it one day. Why are you staring out there?

Stella:  Somebody has to stand watch.

Me:  I guess that’s so, but what are you watching for?

Stella:  Danger.

Me:  Danger like what?

Stella:  The worst kind – possums and squirrels.

Me:  I would have added skunks to that list. They make quite an impression if they get startled. You’re not going to stay there all night, are you?

Stella:  Are you going to take over?

Me:  Me? No, I was planning on getting a good night’s sleep.

Stella:  Typical human. Well, somebody has to stand watch. Hey, Wiggles! Come over here! I’m going to bed.
