Stella went on her first Road Trip this past weekend. Uncle Fred and Auntie Darlene invited her up for the holiday weekend….they invited Rob and I too….and Grammy, Grampy and Hilda. Stella did really well in the car.
Much to the disappointment of Hilda….Stella settled onto Grammy Jo like a barnacle and slept for the entire ride. Grammy Jo had a case of carpal tunnel after rubbing/scratching two dogs for the three hour ride north! So many hours in the car made for a very rambunctious girl when we arrived!
So many new smells, new things, and her first encounter with a cat. There were actually three cats in the house, but only one who was brave enough to deal with 20lbs of happy puppy…….meet…..Tony the Cat
Tony set Miss Stella in her place….with a few swats and hisses….and then took over her bed. Stella tried to make him love her and to play with her. Tony would have none of that.
Stella, unable to controll her puppy-ness had to be restrained while indoors.
She did get outside and have some fun…..we took her for LOTS of walks…..and although it seemed like we took her outside every hour….she still managed to pee 4 times in the house. What is up with that? She had moments of cuteness when she wasn’t digging things out of the bathroom trash, chasing Hilda, bothering Tony….
