You Like Me….You Like Me!!!!!

For those of you too young to remember….this is a clip of Sally Field’s 1985 Oscar Acceptance speech for her role in “Places in the Heart”

What does this have to do with a certain little Schnoodle named Stella?  Well….I looked at her site yesterday and as of about 6pm yesterday…she’s had 9008 visitors to her little blog!  NINE THOUSAND AND EIGHT!!!!!!!!!  That’s amazing considering we adopted her on June 6, 2009…..and I started this little blog on June 4th, 2009.

That seems like a long time ago when I first saw these 2 photos of her on Petfinder.com…

"Please Adopt Me!"

"I'm moving to Maine? Where is that? Ummm. Can I think about it? "

You’ve come a looonnnnngggg  way Stella!!!  What do you think about that Stell???

"You LIKE me....You like ME! Thank you for reading my blog! Sloppy kisses to all 9,008 of you!!"

We’re trying a new theme here today too…just something a little different to mix it up a bit!!!

p.s. at the time I hit the “publish” button this a.m. Stella’s blog has had 9,030 hits!  Thank you!

Who’s a Spoiled Schnoodle????

"I'm pretty sure you're not talking about me Mama."

Uh, I’m pretty sure I am Stella…..let’s look at the snow storm of last week…..who’s Mama went out into the freezing cold…howling wind….and drifting snow in her snowshoes…..to smash down paths in the backyard so that “someone” could go out to do her  business???

"Don't all Mama's do that?"......No Stell, they don't.

Who takes you to the Dog Park even on freezing cold days so that you can run around with your friends???

"I would drive myself Mama, but my feet don't reach the gas pedal and brake."

And the toys Stella….the toys that you destroy….who buys you new ones???

"I didn't do that to the squirrel Mama."

"I think I hear Papa calling for you DOWNSTAIRS Mama."

"I get it Mama...I get it....could you please leave my room so I can take a nap on my bed with my toys? I would like my kibbles at 5pm today...not 5:02 like yesterday."

I’m a Schnoodle Dammit!!!!!

"You heard me....I'm a Schnoodle Dammit!"

Sigh.  It happened again today…..yesterday…and the day before.   I bring little Stella to the dog park….and amid the gushing of compliments on how cute/sweet/beautiful she is…I get the question…THE question….”Is that a Portuguese Water Dog?”  Variations are, “Is that a Water Dog?”, “Isn’t that a Portu..”.  No, no, no she’s not.  She’s a Schnoodle.

A SCCCHHHHHNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDLLLEEEE!

It was about 2 weeks ago that we saw a dog who looked alot like Stella…right as we came into the park.  It was “thicker” than Stella and not nearly as beautiful, but it was cute.  The Mama was standing right there and said, “Oh, another Portuguese Water Dog!”  I said, “Uh, no…she’s a Schnoodle.”  That was one confused Dog Mama…she doesn’t even know what her dog is???

I tried to get photos of the Non-Schnoodle, but sometimes I feel funny taking photos of other people’s dogs at the park.  Here is as good as it got that day….

Taller than Stella....thicker.....not nearly as adorable....

Stella on the left...Stella Wanna Be on the right.

Stella in the front.....Non-Schnoodle in the back.

I wanted to take some more photos of the Non-Schnoodle, but when it’s winter in Maine…and you take your dog to the park….this is how you have to dress….

Dog Park Chic....or Crazy Dog Park Stalker?

I didn’t want to make the Dog Mama nervous by following her dog around the park taking pictures of it while dressed like this.

It was the first Portu-blah, blah whatever dog I had seen that did not have the kinky, curly, wiry coat, but had a smoother one like Stella.  Not as luxurious and shiny as Stella’s of course.   That poor dog….it’s Mama doesn’t know it’s a Schnoodle.

"I DO have a shiny, beautiful coat don't I Mama?"
