I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human, I am scared.
Me: How come? What’s wrong?
Stella: Don’t you hear them? The voices? But where are the humans?
Me: Oh, those are part of a Zoom meeting I’m in right now. They aren’t here.
Stella: This is weird. I hear them. How can I hear them when they aren’t here?
Me: The miracle of modern technology.
Stella: Then modern technology is a scary thing.
Stella: Should I whisper?
Me: No. I have us muted. They can’t hear us unless I want them to.
Stella: Should I bark?
Me: Nope. Not unless you want to hurt my eardrums.
Stella: Never. So those people are not coming to our house, right?
Me: I hope not. Not without telling me first and getting my permission.
Stella: It’s MY permission they would need.
