Where Has Our Fake Forest Gone? – Conversations with Stella and the Pack

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human call those humans with flashing lights on their rolling boxes. Someone has taken away our forest.

Wiggles:  Yes, the tall weeds are gone.

Doodlebug:  The yard is so empty. Make them bring the tall, skinny plants back!

Miss Sweetie:  Once again, I can run free and see where I am going. Yay!

Me:  No need to call the law. Nothing has been stolen. I have been cutting our lamb’s quarter jungle down bit by bit and now the progress is showing.

Stella:  When will you bring it back?

Me:  Well, I won’t. All those plants are annuals. They die out each year.

Wiggles:  How will we hide from each other?

Me:  I guess you’ll have to wait for next spring to see if they come back.

Stella:  Not good enough. We had a perfectly good forest and it died out?

Me:  It was not a real forest.

Stella:  It looked like one to us.

Me:  When you’re as close to the ground as you all are, I can see how that mistake can be made.

Stella:  Are you calling us stupid or stumpy?

Me:  I am calling you bulldogs.

Stella:  Nice save, Lady Human.
