I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Play with me, Lady Human.
Me: In a little while.
Stella: No! Now!
Me: Not right this minute.
Stella: How demanding do you want me to be?
Me: Not at all. If you haven’t noticed, I am babysitting.
Stella: I noticed. That is why I am being ignored.
Me: Here’s an idea. Lie down and roll onto your back.
Stella: What? And expose my tummy to a little human? You know how they are!
Me: Come on. I’ll be here.
Stella: Oh, all right. For just a second. Then I’ll get up…and…say! That feels nice. Her hands are so soft and tickly.
Me: Enough attention?
Stella: Yeah. Just a little more over there. Yeah. That’s fine. Lady Human, you should babysit more often.
