Penny and the mouse.

Howdy mates.  I, Stella, was lucky the other day to have our old Penny cat back me up in a mouse hunt.  Well actually, she was the leader, I followed behind.  A lot behind.  Our dad was in the family room and a little mouse decided to jump on the chair near him.  Cheeky blighter.  When dad moved it jumped behind the lounge chair and when we investigated there was mouse poo there.  Ewwww.  They always come inside when our cold weather starts.  

Anyhoo, mum yells, get Penny!  Dad moves the chairs out and Penny sniffs around with me right behind her.  No mouse.  Phew.  Dad gets the vacuum out and starts cleaning and all of a sudden, Penny pounces and has the mouse.  We let her outside, and you don't want to hear the rest of that story!  

Needless to say, mum and dad were proud of her.  I, Stella, got absolutely no recognition for my part in the hunt.  

Here is our old girl.  Penny, 18 1/2 years old, she has dementia, advanced kidney disease, is deaf and has dodgy eyesight but can still catch a mouse. 

Hope you are all well.  We are all good and send you all our love.
No worries, and love, Stella (and Carol)

Hello from

Howdy Mates, we just wanted to say howdy and let you know we still love you and think of you.  Our human family has grown by another little grandaughter, named Scarlett who was born November 2017.  So now there are three grandaughters and another baby due in July 2018 so busy times for us all.  

Our daughter is visiting America and Canada at the moment and having a wonderful time.  She says the people are so friendly but the weather has been quite a bit colder (well a LOT) colder than she has ever experienced.   We miss her being so very far away.  She will be back in two weeks (a total of five weeks away).  

I, Stella, have been well and getting spoilt being an only dog.  We walk a lot and still look after my two lab cousins while their mum (my sissy) is away so I do have company.  My cousin Jinx (the kelpie) passed away October 2017 at the grand age of 17.  We miss her.  

Wishing you all a wonderful, healthy and happy 2018.

No worries, and love, Stella (and Carol)

Howdy from Stella

Howdy mates.  
Hope everyone is going well.  We are good.  I have been going on a lot of walks with mum and dad.  Usually the same track we have always done and it is about 5km.  We love this track because it is peaceful with occasional other walkers and their dogs.  I am allowed to run off lead and come back when I'm called (unless I see a rabbit then mum says I am a nutjob).  

 I have a new bed.  It is very comfortable.

Here is a photo of mum in the Adelaide Botanical Gardens.  It is a favourite place for mum and dad but no dogs are allowed.  

See you all soon.
No worries, and love, Stella x
