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.
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?

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.
