"Stella!"

This is Stella. She is three months old. You can't see her in the dark, but boy can you hear her at night!

She's an English Labrador. She'll grow up to be strong and a bit stocky—slung lower and broader than an American Labrador.
She has the funniest, most gentle disposition. The breeder called her Miss Personality but as soon as we saw her, we called her Tank because she is built like one. She's very playful. But Tank isn't a respectable girl's name, so Stella popped to mind.

Like that scene in Streetcar Named Desire where Marlon Brando stands at the bottom of the stairs and bellows "Stellaah!" Ladies, take a minute to watch this. Really, you need to.

Ah yes, Stella is here. Night times are not just for sleeping anymore, but for caring for the baby.

All this is good. Yay! Oh yes, it's good to have another mala dog. And this one lies still for a while.
