She’s a Happy Camper!!!!

So Miss Stella… has been mentioned before….is a high energy pup….

She used to go to the dog park alot….then Mama and Papa started working longer hours….and she had a few run ins with some aggressive dogs at the parks….that led her to some bad behaviors…..and suddenly Stella wasn’t socializing as much as she should.  We recently decided to try doggie day care to burn off a little of her energy…and re-socialize her with other 4 legged kids…

She flunked the interview at her first doggie  day care….which is nothing against the facility….and certainly nothing against the maybe inappropriate behavior on Stella’s part…..

We took her to a second interview and she passed!  Yes, she passed….and as of last Wednesday…she is a welcome camper at Camp Bow Wow – Portland!

Happy Camper!!!

She Had Fun!

She got her first Report Card!

So proud of her!!!!

She had a great day!

Can’t say enough about the super nice people at Camp Bow Wow – Portland!!!  Very knowledgeable about “issues” a Schnoodle might have….so friendly, and the facility is SPOTLESS!!!!  Feel very good about taking our girl here 1 day a week.

They even have webcams… you can check in to see what your little Camper is doing during the day!!!!

How cool is that????????

Stella doesn’t know it yet….although I’ve been telling her for days…..she’ll be back at Camp tomorrow……

Hopefully she can behave herself and play nicely with the other Campers!

Thank you Camp Bow Wow – Portland!!!!

Hello Out There!!!!!!

Yes, it’s been a long, long time….even though I haven’t been posting…Stella’s blog has still been busy!!  Back on January 5th….her blog had 113 visitors!  WOW!  113!  AND I’ve been getting notes from other Schnoodle Mama’s out there….soooooooo I thought I would dust off the blog….and start with a little something I call “Guest Schnoodle”!!!

Our first Guest Schnoodle comes to us from Texas……a warm round of applause for…..



Look at that face!!!!!!!  The little patch of white on his chest……he looks just like our Stella!!!

Bingley’s Mama says, “Bingley is 7 months old and is a Texas puppy through and through.  A friend of mine had a miniature schnauzer and a toy poodle….that *accidentally* had a litter, and I got Bingley as a result!  The accidental breeder had his pets fixed after Bingley’s litter, which is great for overpopulation but a little sad, because Bingley is so awesome but no one can ever have another shot at him!”

Bingley’s favorite toy?  “As far as his favorite toy goes, he’s rather spoiled for choices, but his very first nylabone is his favorite. He’s chewed it to absolute bits, but always heads back over to grab it out of the toy basket when I put it away. He also LOVES his rope tugs, especially the one that’s practically bigger than he is! ”

Bingley naps upside down just like Stella……

So cute!!!

AND…..he likes to wear costumes just like Stella!!!!!

Cutest Pirate Ever!!!!!

And there you have it……another ridonkulouly cute Schnoodle!!!  Thank you Bingley’s Mama for letting me post his photos!!
