The Weird, Weird Ground – Conversations with Stella and the Pack

I am Stella, Queen of the Old English Bulldogges. Why are things so strange? Why can’t we count on stuff anymore? Stuff like the ground?

Me:  Why are you all walking so weird?

Wiggles:  You have to be careful, Lady Human. The ground has changed. Watch where you step.

Doodlebug:  Is that spot safe? I will test it. Yes, that spot is okay.

Me:  Is this because the snow melted? When we were covered with inches of snow, you all ran through it like it was nothing. Now you are tiptoeing over every square foot. I am confused.

Stella:  Most humans are, most of the time.

Miss Sweetie:  Stomp. Stomp. Stomp. It’s all right over here. Let’s run!

Wiggles:  No, not yet.

Me:  What do you think is going to happen?

Wiggles:  The ground may disappear. It did the other day.

Me:  Not exactly. Snow fell, covered the ground, then melted, and behold! The ground that has been there the whole time!

Stella:  A likely story, Lady Human. Allow us our doubts. And allow us to conduct our own weird ground experiments.
