I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human, I’ve been thinking.
Stella: I look like a bulldog.
Stella: And Wiggles looks like a bulldog.
Stella: And Sweetie really, really looks like a bulldog.
Me: That’s for sure.
Stella: And Doodlebug looks like…well, a doodlebug.
Me: That’s how he got his name.
Stella: But Doodlebug is NOT a doodlebug.
Stella: So you can still be family even if you don’t look like your family.
Me: Yes, but regarding Doodlebug, he still looks like a bulldog so…
Stella: Don’t confuse me, Lady Human. Doodlebug can’t be a bulldog and a doodlebug at the same time.
Me: Just because somebody’s got a different look or a different name, doesn’t mean they aren’t family.
Stella: Okay, Lady Human, I guess that means you can be our family, too, even though you look mighty peculiar.
