This is little Stella...She is the newest member of our family. I'm sorry about the dark and grainy pictures, but i was in a rush to introduce her to you all, and she seems to be a bit camera shy. She actually ducks and turns away when she sees me with the camera pointed at her. So these are the best pictures i have of her so far. She was a much loved member of my cousin's family, but when her four legged friends passed away (she is 7 years old) she became a bit depressed and her loving humans thought that maybe she would be happier in a place where she could be with other dogs.At first i wondered if this place would be TOO much for Stella. That blur in the picture is Zinnia and Little Honey playing with each other... And we have an Open Door Policy here at the house, so we have folks dropping in all the time, day and night. It is a lot for a body to get used to if that is not your normal way you know.
I was especially worried about Thanksgiving Day. We were having everyone here for dinner and there were at one time about 16 to 18 people of all ages, shapes and sizes in this little house. But you know, those people are all dog lovers, and very loving people in general. And little Stella, who i call Stella Bella, found plenty of laps and arms to be sheltered in, and she did just fine. I have a feeling she will be a special friend to my Mom and Dad, who make a big fuss over her for sure.
