I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. The humans are waving flags. That means cake!
Wiggles: I want to wave a flag! Where is my flag, Lady Human?
Me: Sorry. No flags for bulldogs. They are too easily eaten.
Doodlebug: But there is cake, right?
Me: No. I didn’t get any.
Miss Sweetie: Why am I deprived of cake? What kind of human holiday would keep cake away from a precious bulldog like me?
Me: Well, to start with, this is Texas Independence Day and cake is not necessarily associated with it. And second, we are not a big cake family.
Miss Sweetie: That is all right, Lady Human. You can give us a small cake.
Stella: You mean you can wave flags, but we can’t, and we can’t even eat cake? What kind of a holiday is this?
