I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human! A human is cutting down a tree in the living room.
Me: What? No, there are no trees in the house.
Stella: But it’s that ugly, buzzing noise. Listen! You always say that a human is cutting a tree when we hear that.
Me: Yeah, usually, but this time it’s the pack sawing logs.
Stella: No! Never give a chain saw to a bulldog! They won’t know when to stop!
Me: They do sound like chain saws, I’ll have to admit, but it’s snoring. Humans sometimes call that ‘sawing logs’ when it’s really loud.
Stella: So, we are safe.
Me: Sure, and you’ve been known to saw a few logs yourself.
Stella: Now you’re just making stuff up. If I ever made a noise like that, I would be the first one to tell myself to shut up.
