We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!
On Christmas evening we were opening a big box of goodies for the dogs that a longtime supporter, Barb R., had sent for Christmas. We hadn’t gotten very far in handing out treats and toys when, much to our surprise, blind Stella quietly wandered over to the box, stuck her?face into it, nosed around, and then decided to pull out a doggie blanket. I had the camera nearby so I just started taking photos of Stella doing whatever she was going to do. As you’ll soon see, it was a lot! There went the blanket over the edge:
Which then became a very large, soft and fluffy chew toy:
Yes, that’s Wilbur in the background, wearing a Christmas’sweater that Barb had sent:
After rescuing the blanket from Stella, she decided to go back to the box to see what else was in there:
And off she went with another one:
After a few minutes of thrashing each toy, she’d grow bored and want something new. Back to the box:
This time it was Miss Piggy’s turn:
Well, that didn’t last long, and so:
Yep, the rope toy:
At this point, as you can see, there wasn’t much left, but she made a couple more runs at it just to be sure she’d sampled everything she could. Funny girl!

Very cute!!! Blindness can’t stop Stella from getting all the goodies!!

That Stella is a funny girl. I can’t believe she tried every toy, but I’m glad she enjoyed herself. She probably never got so many toys with the family who gave her up. I didn’t realize that Wilbur was quite as small as he is. I thought you said he was 7 pounds and my chihuahua was the same and that size fit her; but I think he appears to be shorter than she was. Glad they all enjoyed themselves. Hope the toys last a little while.
So wonderful to see the dogs enjoying those wonderful, generous gifts! They sure know what’s “theirs”. What a sweet girl 🙂
It’s the quiet ones you have to watch! hazel made a plan and then worked the plan. It is always good to see Wilber.

Stella is a very good unpacker. I’m sure she was very pleased to have her own personal Christmas box to empty.

Great way to spend her Christmas and New Years Holiday! Sweet Stella!
First off, thank you ever so much Barb for the wonderful box of
goodies which provided minutes or hours of amusement for the dogs (and humans)!
So glad you had a camera nearby Steve, those are great photos of Stella
skimming the box of goodies. I hope this is a wonderful year for all of you at RDF!
….and Stella’s gifts wind up being OUR gift – great way to start the new year!
