I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human, where are my crackers?
Me: What was that?
Stella: No, I ask the questions here. What was that? Quick! Hide under the bed! No! There is just room for one and that one is ME!
Me: Something hit the window.
Stella: Where did Tall Man run off to? Just when we need him.
Me: He’s run outside to check on what caused the noise. Wait here.
Stella: By myself?
Me: What was it?
Tall Man: Birds. Had to be. There’s no sign of them now.
Me: Birds have been flocking and circling all day.
Tall Man: Maybe they’ve gone crazy.
Stella: Crazy birds? No, thank you! I’ll just stay inside from now on. Lady Human, you can slide my crackers under the bed, please.
