Or something worth the effort.

Humans are weird.

I kind of look like Bo Derek running on the beach. Without the cornrows and that little English man.
She may be a 10 but I'm a 12+.

The snow is almost gone, except for this little patch...

Actually I've been told I have Keira Knightly eyes.

 photo stellafeb2_zpst1xavany.jpg

I wonder if she's told she has Awesome Stella the Boston Terrier eyes???

Probably all the time!!

Have a great weekend!!

Heads up! Important Dog Food Recall!

Evanger's Dog and Cat Food Company of Wheeling, Illinois, has announced it is voluntarily recalling specific lots of its pet food due to its potential to be contaminated with Pentobarbital.



Pentobarbital can affect animals that ingest it, and possibly cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance or nausea — or in extreme cases, death.

What’s Being Recalled?

Although pentobarbital was detected in a single lot, the company is recalling all related Hunk of Beef products manufactured the week of June 6 through June 13, 2016.

The affected lots numbers that start with 1816E03HB, 1816E04HB, 1816E06HB, 1816E07HB, and 1816E13HB, and have an expiration date of June 2020.

The second half of the barcode reads 20109, which can be found on the back of the product label.
Where Was the Product Sold?

The affected products were sold both online and also distributed to retail locations only in the following states:

California
Florida
Georgia
Illinois
Indiana
Maryland
Massachusetts
Michigan
Minnesota
New York
Ohio
Pennsylvania
South Carolina
Washington
Wisconsin

About the Recall

The recall affects 5 lots of food that were produced from its supplier’s lot of beef, which is specifically used for the Hunk of Beef product and no other products.

To date, five dogs reportedly became ill. And one of the five dogs died after consuming the product with lot number 1816E06HB13.

Evanger’s is proactively issuing a recall so as not to risk potential exposure to pentobarbital in the product.

According to Evanger’s, all suppliers of meat products are USDA approved.

The insists the beef supplier provides the company with beef chunks from cows that are slaughtered in a USDA facility.

Evanger’s continues to investigate how the contaminant entered its raw material supply.

Because it sources its meat products from suppliers that are USDA approved and since no other products have reported any problems, the company is not extending the recall to other supplier lots.

According to Evanger’s, this is the first recall event for the company in its 82 years of manufacturing.

What to Do?

Although it has been verified that little or no product remains on store shelves, consumers are asked to return recalled product to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 847-537-0102 between 10 AM and 5 PM Central Time, Monday through Friday.

U.S. citizens can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

Or go to http://www.fda.gov/petfoodcomplaints.

Canadians can report any health or safety incidents related to the use of this product by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.



Please pass this info on to everyone you know who has a furbaby.

Happy New Year!!!


Yes, I know I'm extremely late. But I've been recovering from my New Year's Rockin' Eve celebration with Ryan Seacrest in NYC!!
(He's a lot shorter in person)

 photo stellasleeping_zpsveewrde4.jpg

Oh what fun I had!! I got to Nae Nae... Or was it Na-Nu Na-Nu? I can't remember. Which ever one it was, I was awesome at it.

Anyway, it was me who pulled the plug on Ms. Carey's earpiece. Shhh... Don't tell anyone. Only one can wear that sparkly outfit and that would be me. She was trying to steal my thunder.

Oh!! More news...
Did you know we have a new president now? Not sure if you knew that since absolutely no one in the news media/Twitter/Facebook/Hollywood/Instagram/Joe's barber shop and the grocery store are talking about him. Haven't heard a peep out of anyone. Weird.

Ummm... Even though it should have been me who won, I accept and respect he is our new commander in chief. But I'll be back in four years.
Which reminds me, is Ms. Hillary still wandering around in the woods? Maybe I'll see her on the trail behind our house.

Okay. That's it for now!!

Watch this... I'll give her the ol' fake out by acting like I'm playing with my new ball.

WOW!!

It's been almost a month since my last post?!!

That's what happens when you're awesome!! Which is why you all wouldn't understand. There's only enough room on this planet for my awesomeness. Sorry.

 photo christmasstella1_zpswrqoyvb9.jpg

Sooooo... I've been playing and eating... and eating... and eating... and eating.
I've finally put some weight on! Mommy is thrilled, too!! I no longer look like a furry Kate Moss. Or Justin Bieber.

Anyways! It's the countdown to Christmas and I'm waiting for Santa!! He'll probably have to make two trips to drop off all my presents. He'll go by once then realize how truly awesome I am and on the way back swing back by and drop off more Nylabones and Grinz balls.

So in the meantime, I'll be right here.

Wake me when he arrives.

Happy Birthday to...

ME!!!

That's right!!! Today I turn 4!!!

Of course all morning it's been non stop phone calls and emails wishing me the best day ever!
Not only did president elect Trump call to wish me a happy birthday, he asked if I'd like a position in his new cabinet, Secretary of Canine Affairs. I told him I'd have to think about it seeing it isn't as awesome as being president! Maybe Mitt Romney will want it.

Ms Clinton sent me an email. But I didn't get to read it because she deleted it.

I'm sure Megyn Kelly and Anderson Cooper will want a birthday interview later today.

Anyway, I got my first present this morning!!! YaY!! I LOVE PRESENTS!!!

 photo snowstella1_zpsp1ymz6al.jpg

Ummm. Wait a minute. Let me turn it around...

 photo snowstella2_zpshzkgmbeo.jpg

I got another smiley ball!! Only this one is blue! Let's see. I've got a red one. A green one and now a blue one.

 photo snowstella3_zps21xwu0pt.jpg

Guess what else I got today??!!!

 photo snowstella4_zpsq8ud4h40.jpg

A ton of snow!!!!

I would have rather got a Nylabone.

I'm sure you've been waiting for my awesome concession speech...

 photo stellaswin2_zpsjb8y8tqy.jpg

But I've been too upset over my loss to Mr. Trump and Ms. Clinton.

I really thought I had it in the bag. I had Mommy's vote... Daddy's vote... But that wasn't enough to push me over the top.

Mommy's been so distraught over my loss, she has been wandering around with a half gallon of Häagen-Dazs and a very large spoon crying and looking for a "safe space."
Daddy's been burning the American flag, screaming profanities and tweeting about it.
Gracie's been wearing a Trump wig and a pantsuit.

Ummm... Wait a minute. That's not true at all! Mommy and Daddy would never do that and Gracie has better fur and prefers bell bottoms.

We've all been outside enjoying the beautiful day and grateful we live in a country where we can speak our mind and dogs can blog!

 photo stellaswin1_zps0t71qp8x.jpg

YaY America!!!

P.S.
Congratulations, Mr. Trump.
But I'll be back in 4 years!
