A story about beautiful Stella Ann

I have had the pleasure of watching Stella Ann on the beach for most of her life. Stella Ann has a disability. She wears a brace on her leg so she can walk. I have watched in awe this dog's enthusiasm for life. Stella Ann is coming to the end of her life approaching the "Rainbow Bridge". Today I saw her as I do most every day on her street, she can no longer walk on the beach due to her age and disability. Both Stella Ann and I share this in common. I also find it difficult to walk on the beach. I am not able to go the distance like I use to. Stella Ann shows me it doesn't matter. The simple things in life can still give us pleasure. Her owner's adore her and she is still the diva in the neighborhood. She makes her rounds visiting all the neighbors and recently I was told a young chocolate lab is going to have pups. The cycle of life! Dogs do not fear death, they live in the moment. As I age I no longer fear death.

Meeting Hannah Another (Second Chance at Love) Rescue

Hannah is a very charming dog she bosses Bud around and Bud lets her. Hannah is part Poodle and part Schnauzer. She was placed in a home in the LA area with a family, but she was too bossy and started fights with the other dogs when on the walk. Holly took her in as her own. Hannah is devoted to Holly and has some anxiety when she is not in her sight. Hannah is feisty and I find her totally irresistible. Holly said Hannah is a  "Hall Monitor".

Poodles are very intelligent, playful and like to do tricks and show off. Poodles are proud, active, have good stamina and are resilient. Grooming Poodles is essential.

Schnauzers are ideal companions. They are plucky, agile, and a very faithful dog. The dog's size is ideal for city dwelling or for country dwelling they chase vermon. They are peaceful in nature, but will defend themselves when confronted with aggression. They will not back down from a fight.

One last thing about Hannah, if I could steal her from Holly, I most certainly would.
