I found this image today in a box I hadn’t looked into since before the move before last. Almost 12 years ago I packed up this box full of art supplies I rarely used. Today, while trying to decrease the amount of stuff in my life I found this image. Mom and I in March 2004. Miss her.
Stella is our havanese dog. She was born on May 5th of 2008, shortly after I lost my mother to a long cancer illness. She came into my life at just the right time and over the years we have had many excellent adventures.
Unfortunately, in September of 2017 we learned that Stella had congestive heart failure. Medication gave us another year together, but by August 2018 it was time to say goodbye to our dearest puppy.
