When did they come live with you? My Neighbor Hydro, had a friend in Missouri who had a litter of Black Lab/Border Collie puppies. He picked Stella and brought her home as a gift to his son. His Son ended up being severely allergic to dogs, so she was placed in the back yard in a dog house while he looked for another home for her. I spotted her hiding under a chair while playing music with a friend on the deck, coincidentally on the day she was placed outside. She apparently liked our music, and got excited enough to become entangled in her leash and started crying. I went over and knocked on the door to let the neighbors know, but no one was home. I decided I had to act, so I let myself in the back yard and untangled her. That night was chilly, and I could hear her crying outside. She was lonely and cold and I felt terrible. The next day I saw my neighbor outside, and started to tell him the story, but before I could finish he interrupted and asked me point blank, "Do you want the dog?", I was stunned. The he said, I'll put her over the fence and you can hang out with her for a minute, see if you like her. She proceeded to immediately take a poop in my yard, and then came right up to me as if to ask, "Can I come live with you inside your warm toasty house. At that point there was nothing I could do. I was in love! And that's how the Stella Puppy came to live with me.

Funny characteristics: Before she eats her food, she always takes 1 piece of food, and crunches it over the living room rug first before diving in. She also always does a 1/2 deck long hop when we let her out the back door. I think she's trying to see what squirrels/squinnys & rabbits are in the yard before she gets to the bottom of the stairs.
Misc stories about their past etc.: The first time Ariane did yoga with Stella in the room, Stella excitedly went over, stood right next to her, and started doing the "downward dog" as if to say, "I wanna hang out with you, see, I know this one!"
