A Pile of Plush – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human, shhhh! Look!
Me:  What?
Stella:  The little human. She has a whole pile of toys.
Me:  Yeah. She enjoys plush animals. Mostly dogs.
Stella:  But does she know?
Me:  Know what?
Stella:  That they aren’t real. Shhhh! She is talking to them.
Me:  I think she knows the difference between plush toys and you all. For example, she never tries to feed her toys with real food, but she knows that you eat real food. Right now, she’s just using her imagination. She’s pretending they’re real.
Stella:  So her imagination, whatever that is, lets her talk to a pile of plush like they’re real animals.
Me:  Yeah, it’s a game.
Stella:  Imagination sounds scary. I’m glad I don’t have one. Now where’s my chew bone.
