Puppy. Puppy is the newest member of our family. Her name is Stella and she’s the best. We adopted her from a local rescue called Paddy’s Paws. She was born in Texas to a breeder’s boxer who got out and had a one-night stand with the neighbor’s lab. The day before we got her, she and a van load of other dogs drove up from Texas.
She alternates between being a handful and being the best puppy. I like her all the time.
I’ll most likely have a lot more to say about Stella as time goes by. But for now, I want to point out how much I can now appreciate the work my parents did each time we got a puppy growing up. It’s a lot more work than I thought it would be, not too much but still a lot more than expected. So thanks, Mom and Dad!
