This is an ode to those we've loved and lost....

This post is dedicated to those friends who, through possibly some fault of my own, have had some misfortunes.

First, is Lovey. Lovey has been with me from the very beginning. Mommy and Daddy had her in the car with me on the way back to my forever home. This is me on one of my first days with Lovey.

This is Lovey now. After countless surgeries and head/limb/tail reattachment surgeries, Lovey finally had to be "put to pasture". I will miss her.

Lovey: 11/08-6/09. Friend, playtoy, snuggle buddy.

Next is Moe. I had Moe for less than a week. Moe used to be a giraffe. This is Moe now.

I say, "What's wrong with having more than one?"

Thirdly is my Wubba. I don't have an "after" picture of wubba, but let's just say there is no more top tennis ball on the wubba anymore. Mommy got me another one, but that was also gone that night. :)

Lastly is Mr. Mister, my turtle. He has been MIA for a couple weeks for what Mommy calls "medical leave". This is how I will always remember him!

Times are getting desperate in the house of Whitworth. I'm starting to play with my own limbs! It's not fun!

Anyone have any suggestions for a new snuggle buddy? Otherwise, I might have to start on Mommy's shoes...she will not be happy!

And just a little side note from Stella's mommy. I was looking through baby Stella pictures last night and came across these. I forget how little she was! My big girl is growing up!!

January 2009: 3 1/2 months, about 35 lbs
March 2009: 5 months: 50 lbs

June 2009: 7 months: 90 lbs (notice my new "big girl collar"! Mommy and Daddy first bought it when they first got me. It could wrap around my neck twice when I was a baby. Now it fits! :) )

Stella out!


  1. Oh my!

    Just wait until Mango sees how woo are khoming along!

    Woo are blossoming into a beaWOOTiful Mastiff Gal!

    Great work on the toys too! I've others have made the same surgery on their Wubbas!


  2. Don't worry about the stuffies - the humans never learn and they will bring more home. TD actually loves to play with what's left after the stuffing is all out.

    You are growing so much but oh how lovely.

    Woos, Thunder and Phantom

  3. Oh my goodness, Stella! That last picture caught me by surprise--I wasn't expecting your beewootifulness!

    "Here is what I sugjoost. I sugjoost" that you buy a Kong toy. The snake one that we were all playing with at our house. You can get them at Petsmart, or online. We have been tearing at ours since we got it in the mail, and we only have one small hole in it.

    Can't wait to see woo soon!

  4. Oh--and a question--do you have your posts emailed to mom and grandma? I started doing that with mine, and thought you might do the same. Mom likes seeing the pics of the boys.

  5. Oh you are getting a big girl face too! You look so proud and beautiful.

    I am so sorry your toys seem to have short lives. Mine used to last a long time until the Pee-Wee came to live here.

    It is difficult to find proper stuffies for full sized doggies such as ourselves.


  6. Hi, Stella...

    Tell your Mom there are alot more stuffies at the store...They never run out...

    You are getting sooo big...What a beautiful girl you are...

    Did you like your Puppy Classes?

    Abby xxxooo

  7. These things just sorta happen to our stuffies! We're quite sure your mom will break down and buy you more, Stella!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch
