http://wp.me/p5JH7w-F6 I read the post I’ve linked above and the pure emotion of the piece was what made me think it was written so perfectly, it didn’t need pictures, your mind painted a picture for you from cinnamon and sparkles words.  Although I have had dogs around me for most of my 45 years I …

Stella the Staffordshire bull terrier 

Come November the first Stella will be 9 or 63 whichever way you see it. I now I’m slightly biased but she’s doing well, she’s in good shape and (touch wood) has no medical problems apart from having her anal gland emptied 4 to 6 times a year.  She’s lost some of her sustained speed …
