Nobody Touches the Toes! – Conversations with Stella and Miss Sweetie

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. And nobody…do you hear that, Lady Human? NOBODY touches the toes!

Me:  I’ve heard that before. I don’t care. Eventually, toenails need to be trimmed. Especially when someone lounges around all day.

Stella:  And who would that be? Hmmm? Lady Human? Lounging around all day?

Me:  Hey, my nails are all trimmed.

Miss Sweetie:  You can trim my nails, ma’am.

Me:  Really?

Miss Sweetie:  Here. Here’s my front right paw.

Me:  Okaaayyy…Is this a trick?

Miss Sweetie:  Nope.

Me:  All right. Hey, that was easy.

Miss Sweetie:  You sound surprised.

Me:  I am. I am waiting for the other shoe…uh, paw to fall.

Miss Sweetie:  Go ahead. Trim the others.

Me:  Very well…Done.

Stella:  Not fair. Sweetie is making me look bad.

Me:  She is just being cooperative.  You could cooperate.

Stella:  That goes against everything I stand for. And as for you, Sweetie, cooperation? Not very bulldoggy!

Miss Sweetie:  It’s not that bad, Aunt Stella.

Stella:  Forget it! Nobody touches the toes!
