And You Can Dangle Your Carrot But I Ain't Gonna Reach For It

Stella was fine when I got home from work last night. Whatever she ate in the garden is no longer affecting her. She was feeling so good that she had no problem doing battle with a carrot. We give Stella fresh vegetables occasionally. Some vegetables she'll eat immediately. Some? She'll fight to the death. For your viewing pleasure (because I cannot be the only person who thinks this is ridiculously cute,) Stella vs the carrot:

Proof that my puppy isn't always a monster:


  1. I kind of heart your dog hardcore.

    And yay for red velvet cupcakes!


    Well, my kids want a dog, and I have not been able to figure out what kind *I* like.

    It's decided. I want one like Stella! She is too adorable for words.

    (I am an idiot. What breed is she?)

  3. I'm glad she's all better!
    And for the record, her rap name is 2L'dStell

  4. You've got to be kidding me...this is the cutest thing ever!!!

  5. Hella cute. My brother's dog loves carrots and broccoli.

  6. I want to cuddle her! SO CUTE!

  7. Looks like Stella won. That poor carrot. ha.

  8. she is sooo cute... i wanna see her eat the tennis ball! j/k

  9. Angella: Stella is a beagle x pug (technically a "puggle" but I capital-H Hate that term.)
    Her dad is a pug and her mom is a pocket beagle (important, if you want a small dog - there's a big version of beagles too, apparently.)
    We wanted a big dog but we have a tiny condo - Stella is perfect because she's small (15lbs right now - won't grow to more than 25lbs ... knock on wood) but doesn't look like a fluffy, yappy small dog.

    Over-Thinker: Yes! Or Stelly Belly, if we're feeling extra obnoxious.

  10. our boxer loves to eat carrots.

    our shih tzu loves to eat poop. usually her own.

  11. I adore "puggles". I have wanted one for a long time. I was wondering where you purchased yours and if you had a good experience? I have looked online, but am a little leery as I am not familiar with any breeders.

  12. What a cutie!

    Almost as cute as my border terrier.

    She also does battle with vegetables. her favorite is celery but mini carrots also do the trick.
