I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Your neck is shining, Lady Human. Something is different.
Me: Tall Man gave me a new cross necklace for Christmas.
Me: He was being nice, and he knew I would like it. I like the color blue and the cross reminds me of Jesus.
Stella: I thought humans did not wear collars.
Me: We don’t, except I guess that’s what a necklace looks like to you.
Stella: It is brighter and shinier than my collar. So when do I get mine?
Me: You’re what?
Stella: My bright and shiny necklace collar.
Me: I don’t think a necklace would last too long on a bulldog.
Stella: Typical. The humans hoarding all the bright and shiny for themselves.
Me: Tell ya what. You can get a new bright and shiny collar or I have one piece of cooked bacon here…
Stella: YES! That’s fair. That’s my idea of bright and shiny.
