Well, I know you are not planning on being a bat dog, you've been there done that!
I guess I will just have to wait and see what you plan to be.

Upon closer inspection, I found that Stella had huge bumps all over her rear legs and bottom half. She seemed a little itchy but not overly uncomfortable and she was not having difficulty breathing, drinking, or eating. She was still playing like normal as well. Her vet was closed that day so I did some online research and then ran to the drug store to pick her up some Benedryl and Oatmeal bath.
The lumps went down after adinistering the Benedryl and the bath but did not clear up entirely. She was fine until about bed time. She became restless and uncomfortable. The next morning her hives started appearing all over her body and face, and she threw up a few times. Our vet is awesome so they saw her straight away, squeezing her in between appointments.
The vet gave Stella a shot of Benedryl and a steroid shot. They also gave her a two week supply of meds. The hives were gone by the time she got home. They told us that we had done everything right with the Benedryl tablets and oatmeal bath. If it happens again, we should do the same thing and then give them a call.
She obviously had some sort of alleric reaction. The most obvious suspect to me is the bed sheets. I usually wash the bedsheets in Woolite / Zero bc I have sensitive skin. Mark (the bf), however, washed them in Tide.
I tried to get some photos but unfortunately they did not turn out very well.

Now for the unlsettling news. Witness say they saw a young lady (probably in her twenties) take Betty from a parking lot. Betty's owners are assuming that this is the same young lady who returned Betty in exchange for a reward. I am not very clear on the events but Betty's owners feel that this whole event was very suspicious and, while they are happy to give a reward, in this particular exchange, the reward seemed more like a ransom.
Like I said, I am not clear on the details but Betty's mom seemed very upset about the whole situation. She is,however, very happy to have Betty home and so are we.
Welcome home, Betty!

We lost our 2year old Boston Terrier Betty on October 5th. She is about 20 pounds with black and white tuxedo markings. She was last seen in the parking lot between Durie and Berseford north of Bloor St. W. (Bloor West Village). We believe she was picked up by a woman in her twenties. We really miss her and want her to come home. Please help spread the word. If everyone can please take a few moments to send this out to all your friends, this has a good chance of getting to the woman who picked her up and getting Betty home safely. You can also help by adding the page on Facebook so that your network has the chance to read the story. We will happily reward whoever gets her home.

Stella and Amy swimming at Centre Island:
Unfortunately, Amy and her parents moved out of the building this weekend but they are not far so I am sure that Amy and Stella will be seeing a lot of eachother. I will try very hard not to steal Amy.

So, at Stella's request, here are Stella's "other" names. They are:
1. Stella Bella
3. Stinky Stella
3. Nut Ball
5. Stumpy Butt
8. Stella Ella Ola (Qwack Qwack Qwack)
So there they are. Stella's super cool nick names as given to her by her family, bestest friends and one guy she kind of tolerates.
Stella now wishes me to add two more nicknames, as bestowed upon her by her Boston buddies, Mack and Murphy. So here they are:
9. Stella Ella Bella Della (as per Mack)
10. Stella Stels (as per Murphy)
Awesome! Eight is a sucky number for a list to have, ten is way better.

Stella only managed to get one photo entry in for the Pawlimpics mostly becuase her parents suck.
Here is a photo of Stella carrying the bone:
Thanks so much to our awesome friends at Wire Wise for putting so much work creativity and effort into these photos and video and hosting the games!

Well, I walked into the washroom, her favourite stuffie chewing station, just a few days later and what do I find?

But when I actually clicked record on the camera, this is the chewing she did. I just don't think her heart was in it, what do you think? Maybe it was the music in the background, too relaxing maybe? Or maybe I have it all wrong, she is actually being quite precise and methodical. All this chewing is part of her master plan.
Here is a photo of my adorable Boston with her favourite stuffingless stuffy toy (It's a bunny), the same one in the above video:

Stella Bella, my adorable and precocious Boston Terrier, is looking outside at THE RAIN!!! but she is thinking about how much more awesome it would be if she were in THE SNOW!!! She insisted I post this video of her playing in the snow this past winter.
Stella has been reading all of the dog blogs and she knows that a lot of her bloggy doggy friends are hating the heat right now so she is hoping this little video has helped you cool off!

Nappy Nellie at emergency. Again.
Three days later, Nellie is home again, high as a purring kite, with a different combination of meds and a freshened up redonkulous hair cut. Well Stella is about fed up. Everyone is really tired and the cat is getting A LOT more attention than Stella Bella. Plus, 4 times a day, the cat gets medicine (which Stella is convinced is just a fancy, expensive word for treats).
Nappy Nellie better NOT have any more seizures. Or Else. Stella means it. Grrrr.

"Nooo, Don't make me go!!! I wanna go on tour!"

Unfortunately Nellie does not seem to remember Stella. She has sustained some damage to her hippocampus because she had so many prolonged seizures but we do not know the extent of the damage yet.
"Don't tell me you fell down again? You so stupid! I should jump on your head now?"
(she did fall down again)Stella also thinks Nellie’s new haircut is pretty funny. The back of Nellie’s head is shaved and so are some parts of all four of her legs. Ha ha, Nellie, thinks Stella. Now who looks silly?
"Ahaha! Bet you wish you did not make fun of my googly eyes so much!"
Stella and I want to thank Dr. Cochrane and all of the staff at the Vet Emergency Clinic, south, in Toronto.
You are so great and we are sorry Nellie bit two of your staff members. Stella’s thinking, though, that those two minor altercations might have been a result of the bad haircut and one too many enemas.
"Who is this crazy dog with the dumb googly eyes?" Says Nellie.

She woofed and cheered at some outrageous floats and costumes:
She met awesome people:
And when the PFLAG (Parents for Lesbians and Gays) marchers came in to view waving their "Proud of Our Gay Children" signs, I swear I saw Stella tear up a little.
Stella was also really excited to see the Canadian Armed Forces, Police Department, Fire Department, NDP, Green Party and Toronto Councillors out showing their support for Toronto's Gay community. It is nice to know that Toronto does not just spout off about diversity and acceptance, we can actually go ahead and practice what we preach. Yay Pride week!
