Stella had visitors this past weekend!!!! Some very special visitors……her Southern Grandma and Grandpa!!!! I warned her to be on her best behavior…..pleaded is actually more like it. They brought Miss Stella gifts…..and nothing wins that Schnoodle over like gifts, treats and tummeh rubs!!!! She got an abundance of all three over the weekend.
One of her new favorite toys is this….
It took Stella a little while to warm up to it. In Aruba, the locals speak Papiamento, it would seem natural that this toy squeaks in the same language and it confused our Southern/English speaking dog. She did not recognize that it’s squeak meant, “Tear me to shreds and leave pieces all over the house” like her other toys do.
She quickly caught on……
When I checked this a.m…..the Octopus still had all of his limbs. An oversight on Stella’s part I’m sure. She’s been so busy playing with all of her other toys that she is slacking in the destruction department.
For the MOST part….she was a very good girl…..she was her charming self…..adorable, well mannered….goofy…all of her finer qualities. She sniffed over everything in their luggage…..pounced on Grandpa Lind when he was trying to take a nap. Slobbered both of their faces with kisses…….made them laugh with her puppy antics. I was slacking in the photo taking department…..I only took photos of the bad things……
I found this photo in Stella’s bed downstairs. It WAS on the coffee table the last time I had seen it……
If we say it once…..we say it 9 trillion times a day…….
And again…..don’t forget to vote for the little psycho in the Cutest Dog Competition!!!
