Dress Up – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde Bulldogges. What’cha doin’, Lady Human? ‘Cuz whatever it is, it looks kinda dumb.
Me: Why, thank you so much, Stella. I’m trying on some dressy clothes in case I need to dress up.
Stella:  Isn’t that what humans do every day? You put on all that stuff.
Me:  Yes, but there are clothes and then there are dress clothes. You know, for parties or church events or special business.
Stella:  No, I don’t know. I have never understood why humans drape themselves with all that cloth. A blanket on a bed on a cold day or night, yes. But to walk around in and get caught on bushes and trees and brush and then you throw them in that loud machine and slosh them in water. Human nonsense. And now you tell me that you have to use different clothes for different days.
Me:  And by the way, how about your special sweater that I made for you. When the next norther comes through, you should wear that.
Stella:  Oh, no! I remember that thing. You can keep that dress up stuff all to yourself. I am proud to be naked and a dog.
