A Flurry of Squirrels – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. They’re invading! Run! No! Charge! No! Jump around and run in circles!
Me:  Wow! That’s a bunch of squirrels! I wonder where they’re headed.
Stella:  They’re in our yard! That’s where they’re headed! They’re going to eat our food!
Me:  Y’all eat inside, except for Doodlebug who prefers fresh air dining and, believe me, no squirrel is ever going to have a chance at his food.
Stella:  Put up a taller fence, Lady Human!
Me:  That wouldn’t do anything. Squirrels scamper up fences the way they scamper up trees. Hey, maybe they are missing the old pecan tree.
Stella:  Lady Human, I demand that you build a roof over our yard.
Me:  Nope.
Stella:  Fine then! When you go out one day and find a pack of squirrels having tea in your lawn chair, don’t complain to me!
Me:  I won’t. And I would kind of like to see something like that.
Stella:  Winter boredom really has set in for you, hasn’t it?
