Update on Stella( Bella )

Post by jansterb » 24 Nov 2013, 21:37

Well we have had Stella since Oct 1st ! She's been full on since day one !! We had a few " accidents " but that's sorted now , she's much better on the lead and we took advice we got in the form and got her a crate which has worked well ! Having said that Garry has had a jacket chewed and, she demolished my black lepel bra and more recently the handle on my lap top bag ! She will chew anything given half the chance !
We enrolled on the kennel club bronze award training program which Stella just loves , she's the little star , learning very quickly , much more quickly than the other dogs on the course ( I am a very proud mummy every Monday night ! ) :1958: it's a great group with a trainer who ironically is called " cat " , a dog behaviourist and a nutritionist , so we are learning lots together and throughly enjoying it ! Can't wait to get our rosette in January , then we are going for silver and gold !
Stella is the most loving affectionate lab I have ever had the pleasure of knowing , she's just wonderful, we thought sabbath was affectionate , but Stella well she is just off the scale ! She is cuddled up with me as I write this .
She loves the company of other dogs , cats and people ! She sits in our bay window waiting for the cat opposite to come out and then cries when he does to go out and play !
Taking on a puppy after sabbath has been a shock to the system but a good shock , it's great to learn together, I feel like an experienced dog owner now , I love learning about doggy behaviour it's fascinating and so rewarding as we train together with Stella
We are all very happy together , Stella as her name suggests really is a wonderful little star ! :1971:

Stella sounds an absolute charmer. So nice that she's so affectionate. Method in her madness perhaps as she sounds very difficult to reprimand. :love2:
I'd love to see some photos too....

Lovely to hear that Stella has settled so well and has made you a very proud Mum again,

Fantastic photo she looks gorgeous. That photo reminds me of my old lab when he was a youngster (although he was a black boy :1967: ) who used to sit staring at the rabbit and guinea pig in their run for ages. He was a gentle soul so I don't think he wanted to hurt them he just wanted to play.

Lovely photo of your little star, Janet :love4:
I'm so pleased that she has settled in so well.
Good luck with the Silver and Gold next year! :thumbup:
