Sunday Funday

Even though she just finished her bowl (yes bowl, not shot glass) of whipped cream, Stella had her eye on my bacon, egg & cheese ciabatta. A few people stopped to compliment Stella on how well behaved she is.

3 Dog Night. Stella Google & Luke had the zoomies all over the house. I thought they were going to pass out but they still wanted to play.

Maddie & Charlie picked out this really nice camera hook for my birthday present.

Backyard Wildlife

Our backyard anhinga often sits on the bulkhead taunting Stella Levy. He knows she can't get to him because of our invisible fence ... so I had to take care of business.

I had my finger on the shutter button of my iPhone 6 while I ran up to chase him away.  This is part of a 30 frame sequence. I got a bunch of good ones (& crappy ones where the wings were in a bad position). Crazy it was shot with my iPhone. Here's one right when the anhinga took off ...

This one is my fave!

We had a delicious birthday dinner at Renee & Greg's with Matt & Ilona. This lizard was hiding under the fire pit taunting Stella.

Enjoying the tranquility.

Doggie Crack!

I saw a segment on Shark Tank for Himalayan Dog Chews. The company already had $5.6 million in sales & valued their company at $15 million! CRAZY!!! Three Sharks made an offer but the entrepreneurs turned them down. A few weeks later I saw the chews on Groupon & decided to give them a try. It was $27 for 12 chews ... regularly $108!

I gave one to Stella. She had been chewing it on the couch for a half hour when I decided to pet her. All of a sudden she growled & showed her teeth ... TO ME! She's never, ever, ever done that, especially to me! I ended up having to take it away from her to teach that I wasn't going to tolerate food aggression.

They are sooooo delicious & like doggie crack!

Double Birthday with Family

When my Mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I said I wanted her to kiss Stella on her lips. It almost happened, but not quite. I definitely think she needs to partake in the University of Arizona's new study ... proof that dog kisses are VERY healthy!

Hey! Where's my dog?

Enjoying her Shake Shack Poochini. Since Stella didn't get to celebrate on her birthday, I needed to make her feel special today.
