…..2 of my favorite people (and yes, Stella is totally a person.)
…especially when you are Stella the Dog. Must be real tough hangin’ in her new ‘hood. Sigh.
This is Stella’s new favorite spot in the house – squirrel patrolin’ in the backyard. We’ve had her here for about a week now and I think she’s finally starting to settle in. I was worried that she wasn’t going to adjust and get comfortable – we’ve been in boxes for the past month – in the condo one minute…at my mom’s the next….and now here. I could tell she was getting worried and nervous – she even stopped eating for a few days. I even started to wonder if she was going to get sick again.
The planes scared her (I think they sound like thunder) and there wasn’t ample rug space to itch her face but she’s found plenty of squirrels in the yard and she’s enjoyed our evening walks around the neighborhood. Last night, she finally ate her dinner and surprised me this morning when she scarfed down her breakfast. She’s also made herself comfortable in our bed again, which she hasn’t done in AGES. I’m glad to know she’s feeling better but would appreciate some additional leg space at night 🙂
My plan for the next few weeks is to keep her at home (sorry Mom & Dad) so that she knows this is her forever home and that we aren’t leaving anytime soon. Lots of love and attention will be on the agenda along with plenty of walks! Man, it’s tough being her.
My dog, Stella, has been living the good life at the “big house” aka my parent’s house these past two weeks as we slowly make the transition into our new home. She’s hardly left alone, there are endless squirrels to chase and frequent friendly visitors stopping by that totally dote on her. and I don’t think she knows what’s in store for her……sorry pup, you’re gonna be a city dog!

I’ve been on nursing duty on and off this past week, helping my Mom recover from her second full knee replacement. Stella and I have been spending a lot of time at her house, which will be a sneak preview of what’s to come when I move in there full time at the beginning of July. The condo has sold, but house hunting in Seattle has been quite difficult – low inventory and lots of competition. Most houses don’t last longer than 2 or 3 days on the market – it’s nuts people! I must admit, I’m not thrilled to be moving home at the age of 31 but living essentially mortgage/bill free and frequent access to puppy sitting might be OK for a bit. I don’t think Stella will mind.
