Santa’s Been Watching You Stella……

“He knows if you’ve been bad or good…so be good for goodness sake!”  Apparently, Stella thought thinks that doesn’t apply to her.   Mama took her to see Santa this past weekend.

The Planet Dog Foundation (http://www.planetdogfoundation.org/)  did their annual “Sit With Santa” at the Planet Dog store (http://www.planetdog.com/home/).   As always with events put on by PDF….it was well organized and lots of fun!  You would think that a store full of dogs would be chaos, but it wasn’t!

They took a little photo of Stella and a number so that her photo could be easily found later.

After Mama squeezed on her Elf hat....they loaded her onto Santa's lap...

And with a little encouragement from a squeaky toy and lots of "What a pretty girl!"'s they started snapping away.

When Santa asked her if she'd been a good girl...Stella could not look him in the eye.

"What stick of butter? I don't know what you're talking about Santa."

"Yum. Butter."

Ho! Ho! Ho! I know a Schnoodle who's getting lots of coal!

"I should have listened to Mama. He DOES know if you've been bad or good."

Naughty, but super cute!!! That counts for something.


Maybe Santa will forget about the Naughtiness this year Stell and bring you a present anyway.

When the photo shoot was over, they printed off a copy of the best one to send home with you and posted the rest on flickr


(Stella’s are in Group #2, page 2.)

And Santa…..what a great Santa!!!!  He was so patient and nice….he had a lap full of dogs, kids….and he was always smiling!  I hear they raised $800 for the foundation!

We’ll see if Santa takes Stella’s cuteness and good behavior at the photo shoot into consideration.  I’m pretty sure he DID see her put her feet up on the counter and try to lick a donut in the store that day…..

Woofminster 2010 Part II

Mama took so many photos….she broke the day up into parts…..

Stella was very happy to be there with all the other pups.....

An Agility Course!!!

Stella LOVED jumping over the jumps!

I think Papa loved it too....

Practicing for the Musical Dog Beds Competition....

She's ready to win it!!!

Stella was focused and ready to go....

Unfortunately for Stella....Mama wasn't fast enough and we were out in the first round...

We lost...but at least Mama didn't step in poo....like this Mama did.

"What's next Mama?"

On to the Best Beggar Competition...another loss for the Schnoodle...

She did her best...look how cute she is...

Last year, Stella won Second Place in the Mystery Mutt Competition….this year…..nothin.  No trophy…..no ribbon.  Nothin.

"I'm ready to go home now Mama."

Stella had a jerky stick as her consolation prize...

And a snuggle with Mama. We love you Stella!!!

Woofminster 2010

It occurred to me….that I haven’t posted a bunch of Stella photos…..the very least of which was the much anticipated Woofminster 2010 put on by the Planet Dog Foundation.  Yes…I know…last year Miss Stella placed Second in the Mystery Dog Contest Category…and was in the run for a shot at Cover Dog…..

So Sweet......

This year you're going to win it Stella!!!!

We've got a pocketful of her Southern Grammy's homemade biscuits....

"Can I have that now Mama?"

We even talked Papa into coming along for the fun.

Stella was super excited!

We got there nice and early.....

Lots of local vendors selling and promoting all kinds of things for dogs!

TROPHIES! Mama...I mean Stella...wanted one....

"I would like a trophy and a biscuit"

More on the festivities in Stella’s next post….
