I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Wiggles: Oh, go tell somebody else! I’m tired of hearing it!
Stella: Who do you think you are? Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges? No! Because that would be me!
Doodlebug: Stop the loud chitter-chatter!
Stella: I never chitter or chatter! Your mouth is bigger than everybody’s.
Doodlebug: THANK YOU!
Me: What is all the noise about?
Stella: WIGGLES STARTED IT!
Wiggles: I SURE DID!
Stella: THIS IS A CONTEST! WHO WON, LADY HUMAN?
Me: Miss Sweetie did. She kept quiet in the face of tremendous temptation. You win, Sweetie. I’ll have to find you a trophy.
Miss Sweetie: Something large and edible, please.
