Default 52 Weeks of Stella

Ok, so before some people say, she’s not a puppy!.... let me just say I read the rules f the forum and it said it could be any new dog you get, and it doesn’t have to be a puppy. So thank you all for understanding and bearing with me.

I’d like to do this so I can keep a record of her, and how she changeds over the next year. I just hope we don’t watch her get fat


So Stella is a poodle Pomeranian mix. She was born June 6, 2012. I adopted her 5 weeks ago. She has already changed from a hyperactive, ADD and OCD dog, to one who players a few times a day for regulated times, and has learned to chill the rest of the time. She now listens carefully to me and has just come a long way. (I have a had thread about her in Other Animals, titled Stella’s Breakthroughs.)

Here are some pics of her over the last 5 weeks.




That is her barking at Zekefur because he stole her ball!


She is not going to let him steal that one!






She figured this out quickly






And here she is with her brother and sister

So how's her hearing?

Ah, I couldn't resist!

Stella is a cutie, and it speaks volumes that she's come so far since the brief time you adopted her, although not surprising since both poodles and terriers tend to be very bright. I really like the shot of her with your other two dogs, she really shines.

I think you were smart to start a 52 week thread. Older dogs in new homes take time to settle in so you will see many changes over the next several months, not just the first few weeks but they will be more subtle ones. My Babykins was almost a year old when I got her and it was fun to watch her as she became more relaxed and used to the new routine.

Stella has stellar ears. They look even larger than a Pomeranian? Her fur looks almost like poodle fur except on her head and tail. Do you have to cut it like poodle hair? She is adorable and has a wonderful sweet expression.

Thank you. And yes, her ears are much larger than on Pomeranians. Her fur does look more like poodle hair and she does have to be cut every 3-4 months. In the 6 weeks I’ve had her, it has only grown not even half an inch. Probably half that. But her ears and tail grow more quickly I’ve noticed. And she is just as sweet as her expressions.

Mo pics this time, but Stellar has had a couple of firsts.

She had been sleeping with by herself in the living room. Although. a couple of times she slept with us in bed. And if I slept in my chair out in the living room, she would sleep in her blanket in the end if the couch.

Three days ago I fell, and had to sleep in my chair with my leg propped up, and she slept the entire evening and all night with me and Zeke in the chair! That was a first, second and third.

Up until yesterday, she had never stepped foot on Zeke bed, I guess cause he was the scary one. But now she plays in it, lays down in it etc. I am glad she is finally comfortable enough with Zeke to do that!

I wanted to record these... so they be, lol.

I forgot to put in that Stella, as of 3 days ago has been wearing her vibrating, no bark collar. She had learned it wouldn’t hurt her and she could bark through the vibrations if she was so inclined. I had been using the quiet command and praise and treats once accomplished.

This is the 3rd day she has been with no collar in at all. She hasn’t gone crazy barking yet! She gets quiet, sometimes not so quickly, but close enough where the dogs are not egging each other on,. she is not perfect, but we are still working in it.

She has made such progress... again in a short amount of time!

What a doll she is! I can’t get over those ears and how quickly she’s settling in.

I couldn’t resist posting her pic for this week. Her old owner said to groom her every 4 months. While her body is barely 1/2” long, her head and face are kinda wild looking. So unkempt!

Guess she’s going to the groomer soon...
