Hello and welcome to my blog. I’m Nellie. I spend a lot of time at the vet.
When I’m not at the vet, I’m barking, wreaking more havoc, and eating more things that will probably land me, where else? Back at the vet.
I have always been strong-willed, opinionated, and hyperactive. My mom loves that about me but she also won’t pay as much attention to me as she used to because she is starting a magazine she says I helped inspire.
I am what they call a field trial labrador. This means that I have more energy than your typical Labrador.
And that’s probably why I took a flying leap out of the back of an oversized SUV just before my 1st birthday and permanently injured my knee and the muscles in my back. I know I’m very lucky to have great doctors who keep me happy, healthy, and so active despite a chronic injury that I sometimes overdo it, and then they get mad at my mom.
But nobody ever gets mad at me.
My favorite thing to do, apart from eating anything, is quail hunting, which is also eating in a way because I often decapitate the birds when I catch them, and swallow their heads.
I hope you enjoy my blog. XOXO Nellie
How many more sacrifices must I make this year? Dear New York Governor Cuomo: Now that New York is free and clear of the virus, I ask that you not force me to cancel my quail hunting trip. Your quarantine interferes with what I believe is, in fact, “essential travel” for me. How do I […]
On Sunday, I celebrated my birthday, the day of days, with my best friends and family. Anyone who is anyone was at my party. It was the event of the COVID-19 season. My actual birthday is July 13. I can’t believe that I am six-years-old. So many birds executed, yet so many birds still at large. I slaughtered one of Grandma’s little humming birdies a few days ago. Delicious. Where was I?

She’s down a total of almost five pounds, and has five more to go until she reaches her bird-murdering/ideal weight. Nellie’s Vlog […]
Dear Fans, Happy May. I hope this finds you enjoying masked life. Is this face mask thing going to continue through NY Fashion Week? And event season? I have to say, I have really enjoyed watching some of the network news anchors with $40 million per year contracts (which stipulate 2-3 million for hair […]
