I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Hurry, Lady Human! Stella to the rescue! A bulldog is screaming from down the hall!
Me: Nope. Not screaming and not a bulldog. It’s delighted screeching and…
Stella: It’s the little human! Yay! But why is she screeching like a bulldog?
Me: Bulldogs don’t screech. You all grunt and moan and ruffle your lips and bark and howl, but I’ve never heard a single one of you screech.
Stella: I beg to differ. I should know what sounds bulldogs make. And I say that the little human is so loud a screecher that she makes an admirable bulldog.
