Stella Sleeps


Stella in a favourite place (Dad's chair)

She has settled into her forever home with us. She loves to patrol her big back yard, and has found her voice. She will occasionally give a brief bark of warning to squirrels. Once she barked at people walking too close to the fence at night. When she comes inside, she finds her resting spot and likes to sleep upside down, like this.

She has gotten accustomed to her cat sisters, who are still trying to figure her out. They are all working it out, and realizing we are family. "The Dog" is here to stay.

Stella is now healthy, having successfully gone through heartworm treatment while under the care of Sheltie Rescue. She is now on the necessary medicines that prevent this horrible parasite. We waited for her to be released, having fallen in love with her. We knew she was our dog, and we are her family. She was definitely worth the wait. Stella is a sweet, smart, very gentle dog...and very much loved.

  1. Stella is sure a lucky dog to have found her furever home with you. Yah, she is feeling healthy again. I'm glad that she's taking care of Daddy's chair for him until he returns. It's getting closer to the time that Bill will be home again.

    Have a good week.

  12. Stella is gorgeous. I love it when animals sleep upside down. To me it shows that they are feeling totally safe and comfortable to allow their vulnerable underbelly to be exposed during sleep.

  19. This is so cute! It is obvious that Stella has made herself right at home! She must feel very safe and secure or she wouldn't sleep belly-up like that. You're doing a great job with her!
