Stella and friends


 Stella the poodle has a new friend


Mr Hedgehog


She likes to give Mr Hedgehog a  good old shake.


 Baxley came up from the South Island to visit.


He is a miniature schnauzer


Hi, I'm a cute girl poodle.


Puffed out after having a run about


Baxley gets to go on his families yacht around Queen Charlotte Sounds.
Of course I HAD to ask my friend how does Baxley go to the bathroom when they are on the yacht. Apparently you can train dogs and cats to use a special carpet/grass known as a portable dog potty.


But Baxley prefers his dad to row him ashore to do his bathroom duties.

Linking up to Saturday Critters.

  1. That's so cute, seeing Baxley sitting in the dinghy. The 2 dogs look like fine play mates. I do like schnauzers, I have only seen the salt and pepper ones here in England.

    1. Stella and Baxley did so want to be best friends but with my friend living in the South Island and us in the North Island it's a bit hard. But now they have a yacht it really will be easy to plan play dates me thinks SMILE.

    1. I sure hope not many cats enter teddy's yard. Imagine the walkabout on a boat for teddy to do the deed. SMILE

  5. Cute picture of Dad and Baxley. Probably better that Baxley prefers to do his business on solid ground. :) Mele has never been in a boat..hmmm wonder how she would react. Probably poo in the darned boat!

    1. LOL I've never been on a Yacht, being such a landlubber I have no desire to. My friend took videos of their yacht and its rather wonderful a little house on water.

    1. Stella loves toys - I think she has more than some children, I know she eats better than some children.

    1. Stella is rather terrifying and embarrassing to as will pick up a toy when someone comes and hold it in her mouth and growl - Mastiff's and Doberman's wouldn't be seen dead behaving like that!

    1. Stella loves squeaky toys and the kids have taught her to squeak it on demand. I'm not impressed. Cats are so much quieter to have around - (being the cats union representative here). Stellas hedgehog turns into a ball - too funny I can;t remember the website Abbey brought it off to link you to to see. Frodo I am sure would love it as you can sneak treats in it. Stella loves that game.
