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
$29,661 and I’m just getting started by Nellie Brill

My mom has been […]
I chewed glass, cut my face, entertained some vets, and Trupanion paid–again. Hehe. By Nellie Brill
I’m sorry for any inconveniences I’ve caused multiple people.
Thank you to my fans and teams at KBVC and AMC. Without you, many birds would still be alive.
p.s. If you work in the vet profession, you’ve probably encountered me. This is one of the reasons you get to skip the TCR paywall and, as usual, Trupanion is paying! No, seriously. Vet professionals and Trupanion members skip the paywall. Click on the “subscribe” option.
