Kidding….she did not break the camera with her cuteness. Much to my horror…..our camera just stopped working the other day. We are working our way up the list of what could be wrong with it…starting with the least expensive. Today…I bought a new battery…much less money than the original battery we purchased almost three years ago. Rushed home, charged it….camera still doesn’t work. Step #2 will be the BATTERY CHARGER!!!!! Until then…….no new photos/videos of Stella!!!!
So I’ll go with some (hopefully) unposted photos of Stella…….
Let’s look at Stella’s Bedroom…….she has claimed the guest bedroom on the back of the house as her own…..
This was a photo from before we had to rearrange her bedroom…..
Her bed used to be right next to the window....where she could lay and look out the window all day.
Sadly, because of this….
Is Lead Paint harmful to dogs???
We had to move her bed away from the windows.....The Schnoodle was NOT pleased.
Now she is THIS far from both windows.
I’m not sure why she claimed THIS room….maybe it’s the view….one window allows her to watch squirrels in the backyard….and the other window allows her to watch the street….and watch/bark at our neighbor.
This is her watching the neighbor and the street.....
She scatters her "babies" all over HER bedroom.
"Mama....if I have told you once....I've told you 100 times....please KNOCK before coming into my room."
You cannot resist the cuteness!
We are still amazed at how well Stella is doing! She’s had no accidents in the house….aside from a couple of whines or yips she sleeps nicely in her crate. She finally started eating regularly and if there is a god, solid food will put and end to the puppy runs!
Rob’s been working on her training and is quite convinced he could give Caesar Milan a run for his money.
Working on "Sit"
- Good Sit Stella!
Did I mention that she’s very “active”? Like 4 shots of espresso active?? Well she is! Quite a change from our little Couch Potato Sadie, who would blissfully nap the day away on her bed or her favorite chair.
Stella could almost qualify to be labeled “hyperactive”! She loves to go for walks and is getting quite good at walking to the left of me. She only occasional tries to dart in front of me. Her walking manners are very important! I walk the Blvd alot and it will be much easier if she is not wrapping the leash around my ankles and tripping me.
When we bought our house we loved the enclosed front porch and Rob envisioned himself sitting out there on a Sunday a.m….sipping his coffee and reading his paper while Sadie napped quietly at his feet.
Now it has become Stella’s indoor running track.
She loves to run back and forth on the porch chasing the “babies” that you throw for her. She’s not so good at the bringing them back to you part. She generally runs right by you and into the house. Then she’ll race through the living room, dining room, kitchen, hallway….and back out to the front door.
Did I mention she has quite a bit of puppy energy?
Then…..she generally collapses on the bed we keep in the hallway for a little rest before she starts it all over again! It’s not easy being 8 months old and so unbearably cute!
