Hi Miss Michelle and everybody!!!

Have you missed me??!! Does a bear poop in the woods?!

I'm sorry, but I've been sooooo busy with being in heat and all. I've been making messes by putting my "stamp" on everything and anything. A good thing Mommy put down tons of old sheets and blankets. Well, some of them weren't old but they will be now once I get done with them!! ((giggle))

I think when I am done with all of this I will treat myself to a bubble bath and a pedi-pedi.

I'm sure you've heard about all the bad flooding we had around here on Friday. We are okay but others have a lot of damage to their homes and land. I sat and looked out the window with my Swimmies on just in case.

Yesterday me and Mommy took a drive around our hamlet to see the damage. All the roads were brown from the mud and BIG chunks in the roads were missing!!

Then when we were coming down our road we saw...
BAMBI!!

Aaaaaaand Bambi has a twin! Did you know that?!
Mr. Disney never told us that, but it's true!
There was another Bambi right next to him! (But I wasn't fast enough with the camera. I'm all paws when it comes to working it)

Then they both jumped on a bicycle built for two and started chew Wrigley's chewing gum.
(Okay, I exaggerated a bit. They weren't chewing gum)


Guess what???!! Mommy bought me and Gracie three new Nylabones and now I have three new Nylabones and Gracie has none!! YaY me!!

Oh!! Which reminds me!!! Don't forget to check out my Mommy's debut on
Early Work Mercantile tonight!

Hey, I've got to give her a plug because she buys me all my Nylabones.

See ya!!

Being housebound is driving me absolutely crazy!

Since I'm still in heat, Mommy and Daddy won't allow me to romp and play outside.

So I spend a lot of time staring off into space.

I also nap a lot...

and I chew on my NylaBone a lot.

But I can't take another minute of watching Days Of Our Lives!!

Boy, it's been a scorcher weekend!

I learned the hard way I don't do too well when it's really hot and humid outside. I kinda barfed. Well, I did barf. So Mommy thought it's best I stay inside with a/c.

Mommy doesn't do well with the heat and especially the humidity. She doesn't barf though.
She just gets really cranky and turns into the Incredible Hulk.

But she's not green. Or has gigantic muscles. Or looks like Lou Ferrigno.
But you know what I mean.

With this humidity, she does get "hulk hair" though.

((giggle))

Uh-oh...

Remember how Mommy was worried I wouldn't hold off until my spay scheduled in 3 days?

 photo elvisstella_zps82e0aaf2.jpg

She was right.
I woke up this morning and "it" happened. I guess she wasn't fast enough with that cork and duct tape.
Sigh.

Now Mommy has to call the vet's office this morning and they will have to reschedule my surgery.
She is NOT happy.
I'd better warn that vet receptionist lady to wear shin guards the next time we see her.

I am not a happy camper!

 photo woodch2_zps3518ada0.jpg

Remember when I told you Daddy was gonna have his bulldozer friend come over and make a special place for me to play in??

Well, now Mommy wants to hold off because of this!!

 photo woodch1_zps8e5e04dc.jpg

There seems to be some sort of gopher or woodchuck living in that hole right where my play area was going to be and she doesn't want to disturb him!

Of all places, he had to move in right there!!

Shouldn't he be on a golf course dancing to a Kenny Loggins song?!

Where's Bill Murray when you need him??!!

Mommy thought it was funny...

 photo nosestella1_zps183069e8.jpg

to put whipped cream on top of my nose.

 photo nosestella2_zps0787e409.jpg

I thought it was even funnier when afterwards I peed on her braided rug.

T minus 12 days.

Until I go to the vet to get spayed.

But Mommy doesn't think I'm going to hold out 'til then and that I may go into heat.
I still don't understand what that means.

She keeps mumbling she's going to kick the vet's receptionist in the shin for telling her it was okay for me to wait this long.

I have been feeling and acting a little squirelly lately and don't know why.
Even Gracie is looking at me funny.

 photo squirrelystella_zps5e7c9471.jpg

Hmmm... It might explain why Mommy is following me around the house with a cork and duct tape.
She also keeps mentioning a story of "why Jane can't go swimming."

I bet Jane forgot her bathing suit.

Why didn't the dog speak to his foot?

Because it's not polite to talk back to your paw.


Why do dogs wag their tails?
Because no one else will do it for them.


What happened to the dog that ate nothing but garlic?
His bark was much worse than his bite.


Why do you need a license for a dog and not for a cat?
Cats can't drive.


What did the hungry Dalmatian say when he had a meal?
"That hit the spots!"


Why do dogs run in circles?
Because it's hard to run in squares.



Thank you! Thank you! I'll be here all week!

Don't forget to try the prime rib.

I did poopies!

I'm not sure why, but Mommy is thrilled that I did!! Yay me!!!

So as of right now it looks like I didn't have a blockage, just a VERY expensive tummy ache.

Thank you for your prayers and positives thoughts! They worked!

Now, if only I could get Daddy to stop being mad at Mommy.

Hmmm...

That may take a miracle.

I am sick.

Mommy and Daddy had to take me to see the vet lady this morning.

I keep throwing up. I threw up all my food. I threw up all my water. I threw up all the Pedialyte Mommy gave me.

She thinks I may have eaten something I shouldn't and have a blockage.

The vet lady did some blood work to check for Pancreatitis. My blood work was fine.
She took a couple of x-rays and couldn't see anything. Although she said not all blockages show up on x-rays.

She also said I could have really irritated my insides which is why I keep throwing up. So she gave me a shot and gave me some medicine to take.

She said I can't eat anything until tomorrow morning! What the??!! Can you believe it?! I could wither away by then!

If I eat tomorrow and can't keep it down then the next step is to have Barium x-rays. I don't think I like the sound of that. I may even need surgery.

Looks like Mommy will have to sew her fingers off or sell a kidney. Or both. But she knows I'm worth it.

So for now I will stay snuggled up next to her hip and rest.

 photo sickstella_zps85826982.jpg

Would you please say a little puppy prayer for me? Or you can send positive thoughts my way.
Or you could do both.

Thank you.

Does anyone out there want to see

another cute picture of me?!

What a silly question, why of course you do!! Who wouldn't?!

Okay... here ya go.

See, I wasn't lying.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Hey! Look at me!

 photo 7c9ba0e4-9c54-4702-923e-2760553ce534_zpsc1487595.jpg

I'm like that ghost guy, Daniel Gregg from the T.V. show "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir."
But I'm not a bearded sea captain, and I don't wear a turtle neck and we're not in Maine, but you know what I mean.

When Mommy is outside taking care of the lawn and not paying attention to me, I burn a hole through her lovingly stare at her out the window until she comes in the house to play with me.

She comes in the house every 20 minutes because I'm irresistible and not to check on me because I can't be trusted in the house alone.

Have I mentioned I'm awesome too??!!
Yes, it's true!

Yet another reason why she comes in the house every 20 minutes.

Hi everybody!

Boy! What a fun weekend I had!

Besides chewing on everything in sight when Mommy was trying to paint the upstairs hallway, I've also been going for rides in her Jeep!
No, I haven't learned how to drive... yet. Mommy's been driving me. I'm still a little scared, but I love it!

 photo stellajeep_zps24ec7e3c.jpg


I sit on her lap and look out the window. But I jump every time a car goes past us from the other direction. (That's the scary part)

I still need to get my sea legs too. All that moving makes me wobbly.

You want to know what my favorite part is?!
Okay, I'll tell you!
My favorite part is when we go past the dairy farms
because I love the smell of cow poop!
Mommy on the other hand doesn't love it. I know! Crazy, right?! Cow poop is awesome! I'd dab a little behind my ears if I could.

Anyway, I've got more good news! Well, I'm not 100% sure, but I overheard Mommy and Daddy talking about having an area bulldozed for me to play in. So that means no fence and I would still have a big place to play in!! Isn't that swell??!!

Daddy's bulldozer friend is supposed to come by sometime this week so we'll have to see what happens. I'll keep my paws crossed for sure.

Okay, I've got to go now. Gracie is waiting for me to bark in her face.

See ya!!
