Stella happenings...

Hello four legged world! Sorry I haven't been able to be online for awhile. It's been such nice weather here that Mommy and Daddy have been taking me lots of different places with them. I met a new friend at the doggy park named Dooley. She's a 5 month old black lab, same age as me. Grant it, even though we're the same age, she can walk underneath me and not even touch my belly! Small fry! :) Dooley likes to play bitey face, and with the tips and tricks that I learned from Gus and Waldo, I was playing like a champ in no time! Daddy said I've made such an improvement at the doggie park since the first time we went! I'm getting braver and braver every time!
I probably won't be on here for a couple of days. Mommy and Daddy are taking me to the vet tomorrow to have belly surgery. Mommy says I will be her little it instead of her little girl after tomorrow. Hmm...I wonder what she means by that??
Hopefully I won't be down and out too long!! Too many things to sniff and explore, especially with the weekend coming up soon!
I hope everyone is doing well! We'll see you in a couple of days!

I was tagged by my big friend Mango to tell you 10 honest things about myself.

1. I really like to snuggle. If you sit on the floor, that means you are in my territory and you want to snuggle too. The best types of snuggle are when I am sitting on you. Be aware when you come to our house.

2. I am a lazy butt. Mommy works during the day, so I go to bed early with her at night. Daddy works nights, so he sleeps in during the day. That is normally when I get my best sleepys in because I have half the bed to myself while daddy is snoring away. None of this "floor sleeping" for me!

3. While daddy and I are having said "sleepy time", I like to army crawl up to the top so that I'm laying on his pillow. Hey, he says its comfy, why shouldn't I get in on that action?

4. One of my favorite toys is "Lovey", my blue stuffed doggie. Mommy has had to perform emergency surgery on Lovey many times because she has fallen apart in the wash. Just last week she had to have "re-capitation" surgery. I was very happy when she was back.

5. After I get a bath, Mommy and Daddy towel dry me off. After said towel drying, I like to make sure I tell the towel who is boss by carrying it around the house for awhile.

6. I really like getting in the car to go for a ride with Mommy and Daddy. I really don't like getting OUT of the car, which means Mommy and Daddy sometimes have to give me a gentle tug (read: push/pull) out of the car nearly 99% of the time.

7. If I see a sock on the floor, it has now become the property of Stella. Mommy and Daddy like to try and take them from me, but I will always have the upper hand!

8. I have been woken up many times by mommy and daddy laughing at me. Something about snoring. It doesn't bother me any, so I don't know what they're talking about.

9. I really like little kids. Mommy and Daddy don't have any kids (except for me of course), but the house I was at before my forever home had 3 little girls that I liked to play with. Everytime I see kids at the dog park or walking around our complex, I just have to go up and say hi.

10. I have recently learned to crawl up in the front seat in Mommy's car. Sometimes I get my back half stuck. Mommy says it has something to do with my "junk in my trunk". I don't know what that means. All I know is that I like to be close to Mommy and Daddy when they're driving. The backseat gets lonely!

Hope you enjoyed! I will now tag.......Gus and Waldo, Khyra, Maggie and Mitch, and Abby.

The boys and me

For our adventures in Dayton for Easter, go to Aunt Allison's blog here. We had a lot of fun! I've been a very sleepy girl these past couple of days from being worn out from the boys! I can't wait to go back and play "bitey-face" with them again!
How was your Easter?

I hope everyone has a good Easter!!

We are sorry for the lack of posting lately. Mommy says something about our internet being "broken". Plus, it probably doesn't help that Mommy says I've learned a new trick. It's called "eating the computer cord". Yummy!
Just a quick update. We have been busy bees. The weather is getting warmer, which I like a lot. We have been playing with Annie, the lab/pit mix from upstairs and Riley, the Bernese Mountain dog from across the yard a lot. Allison, Riley's mommy says I am getting very brave being around other dogs. They keep saying something about me getting to be as big as Riley, but I don't know about that!! He's a big boy! :)
Mommy and Daddy took me to the vet last week. He was really nice, even though he gave me a pokey thing, called a shot. It wasn't all that terrible though cause I got lots of Mommy and Daddy love after that, and even got a yummy treat from the doctor. I guess it's not too bad. Mommy and Daddy said that I've gained 17 lbs since we went to the vet the last time. I am a healthy and growing 50lbs now! :) Mommy calls me her "big lady". :)
Mommy and I are going on a trip back to her hometown next week. Mommy is very excited about this because she gets to see HER Mommy and Daddy. Mommy says I'm going to get to meet my cousins, Gus and Waldo for the first time. I've very nervous...I hope they like me! :)
I must go. There is a gray kitten sitting outside on my back porch and she is taunting me. I think if I bark at her and keep running into the door, she'll run away! :)
