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.
