How did you meet your canine companion?

What’s the story behind your dog’s name?
Well, not much of a story - her name was Shirley when we adopted her but it didn't feel like it fit and I've always loved the name Stella.
How has your life changed since you have had your dog?
OMG - that's a loaded question - Stella changed our whole family. We were all struggling with anxiety and depression after I was diagnosed and almost died from stage 3 breast cancer. www.incredibullstella.com/thedodo
Which 3 words best describe your dog’s personality?
Sweet, smart, intuitive

I refer to Stella as a conduit for human connection. We have meet so many people and had such amazing experiences that are all due to Stelly.
If your dog had a job, what would it be?
Airline Stewardess on British Airways (yes, we've already talk about it haha)
What’s your dog’s most unappealing / most embarrassing habit?
She gets so excited to play in the morning that we have to take her to play before we can get coffee because she carries on so much. She has us well trained.
Where can we find you hanging out with your dog?
Everywhere - Stella goes almost everywhere with me, from business meetings, dentist, hair salon. We like to hang out with my hubby in the morning at starbucks and have a coffee.
