Dogged – Conversations with Stella and Doodlebug

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.

Me:  Stella, please explain to me what Doodlebug is doing.

Stella:  Isn’t that obvious? He is wrestling a tree.

Me:  Doodle, why are you fighting that little tree?

Doodlebug:  It…is…stubborn. It… won’t… give… me… its…leaves.

Me:  How…come…you…need…its…leaves?

Doodlebug:  I…don’t…know.

Me:  Well, you are dogged. I’ll give you that.

Stella:  Oh, he’s dogged. He’s a bulldog.

Me:  Dogged means determined, not giving up.

Stella:  Like I said. Why are you repeating me? Dogged bulldog.
