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 landed in a way I did not intend. I slipped on the gravel and long story short (it’s a really long story), it turns out that I permanently injured my knee and the muscles in my back.
I have a great family and great doctors who keep me happy, healthy, and active despite a chronic injury. I go to physical therapy every Saturday and clean out the peanut butter. I feel so great that I sometimes overdo it, and then my doctors 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 decapitate birds when I catch them, and swallow their heads whole.
I hope you enjoy my blog. XOXO Nellie

Grandma and Grandpa decided to ignore Governor Cuomo and have a big Thanksgiving get-together. Thanksgiving 2020 wasn’t as exciting as my birthday party, of course, but it was nice to have the whole family together. Aunt Sophie and her boyfriend, Philip (very good about sharing his food and playing tug) came with a small white fur creature named “Jack.” I think it’s a dog. He’s very small and wears clothing indoors.
Many important updates: Election 2020, dismembering a frog, physical therapy, and flirting with Shabba
Dear Fans, There’s so much to tell you just 24 hours from Election Day 2020. I have to say, as a member of the canine race, I think the fact that so many people continue to show unrelenting faith in America’s democratic process, system of checks and balances, etc. is really, really beautiful. All of […]
