Ali Z and Stella converse . . .

Stella!  Stellahhhh!  Come over here for a minute.

What could you possibly want of me, Ali Z?  I mean you usually leave the room whenever I appear.

Did you know because our Mom said that yesterday was my last column, that people
think I have been Fired!  Even Bobby asked me why I'd been sacked.  I want you
to straighten people out about this.  And do it TODAY!

Wait a minute, Z, I don't know why it is up to me to let people know you have not been sacked.  Besides, you are always complaining about how much time this Advice column takes and how dumb the questions often are.  So maybe you could just say you have been relieved of your dooties.  Does that sound better to you?  We are just going to do a new bloggie thing and you can speak up in it, once in a great while. 

Oh, you are sooooo generous, Stella, I must remember this.  No, relieved of my duties sounds very much like being sacked to me.   So make an announcement RIGHT NOW!

Uhhh, OK, I am making this announcement for Ali Zophia who was NOT fired from her Advice Column.
No way, was she fired.  We are just having a new blog happening the last week of this month, and there will be no Words for the Confused or the Lovelorn (you know who you are.)  Surprisingly a number of people say they liked Ali Z's Advice Column, but someone else is gonna have it now.  Should I tell them who, Z?

Surprisingly??? Surprisingly??? I don't care what you tell them.  And further, I don't think this was such a Hot Announcement for me.
I don't mind telling them who is the new Advice columnist,  Mom maybe won't like that I did it, but it seems like I am owed at least that!

So the new advice columnist is going to be Twinkie (TinyDog) Twinkerson.  Twinkie is a Teacup Chihuahua and thinks this is gonna be fun.  Hunh!  It is until you get dumped!

I should have known there was not going to be anything easy about this at all.  Twinkie will give it a new name, maybe a new day, and we are sure she will do a fine job.  Like Z, she seldom runs out of words.

Both Z and I wish her the very best and know you folks will enjoy a tiny dogs take on the world.

Kisses and meows,

Stella and Ali Zophia

Well, I'm glad that you didn't get sacked! That said, I'm looking forward to hearing what Twinkie has to say! (And I'm looking forward to the new bloggie!)

*kissey face*

Bobby said...

Ali Z maybe Twink will need your advice sometimes. I still think if not sacked definitely side stepped.

MAX said...

Hey there Ali-Z
I'm still gonna miss you!

I guess there isn't room for two advice columns on this blog! :-)


Gail in Aberdeen said...

One final question, Ali Z, did you manage to negotiate a decent termination package?
Cheers! Gail.

First, I am Most Relieved there was no "sacking" going on. That sounds painful. Second...um...I thinks Twinkie is a girl since she wore that bikini and went on a date with Gunther and all. Unless, of course, Twinkie is just leading an "alternative lifestyle." Then nevermind.

I'll miss you but I am certain Twink will do a great job too! Star also has an advice column. Room enough for all....We need all the advice we can get!

Ali Z, you will be a tough act to follow! I wish Twink all the best in this new endeavor!

Twinkietinydog said...

Very funny presentation! Only, I'm now getting cold feet. Ali Z, you never mentioned anything about dumb questions. Should I ask to be relieved of my dooties now? BOL I'm really anxious to see your revamped blog... One last thing, Ali Z: May I come to you for advice still? off the record ;)
Yikes, I meant to say "I am honored"!!!

kissa-bull said...

Sagira said...

We will miss all your advice Ali Z. Has anyone told you that you look like my kitty sister Akira? :)

Ali Z: You can kick back and relax now. Order your peeps to bring you cocktails and switch the remote for you. It's retirement. You could even take a cruise. Imagine the possibilities - you're a lucky cat!

Martha and Bailey said...

Ali Z, we will miss you! We are sure Twinkie will do a pawesome job but, let's face it, let's call a spade a spade - he is a DOG!
Now we are dogs ourselves but we know kitty cats have a certain wisdom that is not often found in dogs.
We hope you are going to stand by in a consultative capacity at least!
Why don't you just start your own blog Ali Z - that'll show em!
Your lovaly supporters

I will miss your column, Ali. Did you get tired of all the questions about poo???



AC said...

Thanks for visiting us!

Ali Z: You sounds a lot like Kona's kitty. You two have the same sort of...spunk. I'm sorry I've come too late to read your column. I'll have to backtrack to hear your advise!

The OP Pack said...

Awww, we are going to miss you, Ali Z. You need to do a quarterly post or something like that. We know Twinkie will do a great job, but somehow we think it will be different from yours - should be very interesting.

You be sure Stella lets us see you every now and then, OK?
