Sweater Weather – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. What are you scheming there, Lady Human?

Me:  Scheming? That’s not very nice. What do you take me for?

Stella:  A schemer, just like all humans. You are always planning to clip our toenails, get us to take medicine disguised as treats, clean our dirty ears…

Me:  Then you do admit that your ears are dirty…

Stella:  No, of course not, not dirty at all. What do you have in your hand and don’t you dare put it on me.

Me:  It’s that really big sweater I crocheted for you a few years back.

Stella:  That’s what I thought. Take it away. I am a bulldog. I don’t wear things like that.

Me:  But it’s getting colder and I thought…

Stella:  You thought wrongly as usual. I will tuck into my covers for warmth, free and naked. Why are you smiling?

Me:  I never think about dogs being naked, but I guess you are.

Stella:  How rude!

Me:  Hey, you’re the one who brought it up.

Stella:  Even so, no excuse for rudeness.

Me:  Well, alright. I’ll just add the sweater to your blanket pile on the bed. I did find this other sweater on sale…

Stella:  Nope.

Me:  It fits closer than the other one…

Stella:  Nope.

Me:  You might like it…

Stella:  Nope.

Me:  I just thought…

Stella:  What are those big word books you humans use?

Me:  Dictionaries?

Stella:  Yes. You should get one. You don’t seem to understand what the word ‘nope’ means.
