Never Pee in Your Sunbathing Spot! – Conversations with Stella and the Pack

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Hear ye! Hear ye! I have an announcement to make!

Me:        Announce away.

Snoopey:   Oh, no, not again.

Tiger:     Do I have to listen? No, I don’t.

Wiggles:   Places to go, people to see. Bye.

Doodlebug:   Nap time!

Miss Sweetie:    Oh, good! Aunt Stella has something new to say!

Stella:    Never pee in your sunbathing spot!

Me:        Are we talking about pee? Again? How many times are we going to talk about pee?

Stella:    Pee is an important topic. Never forget.

Snoopey:   Sunbathing is important. Food is important. Sleep is important. Chew toys are important. Pee…yep, pee is important. Lady Human, I just realized. I need to go outside, please.

Me:        Okay.

Stella:    Don’t pee in your sunbathing spot! More importantly, don’t pee in MY sunbathing spot!

Me:        Is this a real problem?

Stella:    Have you seen the patio today?

Moon-bathing – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am a good girl.

Me:        Yes, you are. And… why are you bringing up that detail?

Stella:    Because Wiggles and Sweetie are not being good girls. I have heard you calling them to come in for at least 2 years now.

Me:        Two years? That’s a bit of a stretch. Try an hour, maybe.

Stella:    Mmmmm, seems longer.

Me:        I know it’s a nice evening outside, but I can’t figure out the draw. Why aren’t they coming in? Usually I only have to call them 10 or 12 times. And then I have to go out and get them.

Stella:    Yeah, they are twin-kies.

Me:        What’s so special outside?

Stella:    That big light in the sky.

Me:        The moon?

Stella:    Have you seen it tonight? The Great Creator’s flashlight. It is big and bright, more than usual. We notice things like that.

Me:        Oh, that’s right. The super moon.

Stella:    Simple. They are moon-bathing. Second best thing to sunbathing.

Me:        Okay, if you say so.

Stella:    Better even. No heat.
