Then last night, the trainer came over because Stella doesn't like people to come to our house. Now it's not like we have strangers parading through, but I do have one friend, five foot nothing ninety pounds soaking wet, who Stella barks at constantly. Fortunately, she was willing to come over and be barked at and help us undo Stella's issue. The trainer, my friend, Stella and the dude all showed up at the door at the same time and true to form, Stella was a maniac. By the time my friend had to go 45 minutes later, Stella was letting her ring the doorbell and come in. She was happily wagging her tail. It was a remarkable turnaround. And a relief. The trainer told the dude that most people would have given up on "such a reactive dog" by this point. So I guess Stella is lucky to have two stupidheads for owners. Or two suckers for such pretty eyes. Yup, we're in love.
Speaking of love...did you not want to tell me about falling in love or were y'all not interested in the patterns? Because I only had five entries for the "Summer of Love" drawing of love.
And the winner is...K-G Knitter!
Come back on Thursday (promise) for "Then Comes Marriage"...a collection of wedding samplers that I have to offer you.
