Crossfields sunset on April 16, 2007


Stella was the only one in a litter from Nana and Espen. We had no choice but to keep her. She was very special to the whole family and brought us so much joy. She was the most intelligent dog I have ever had, understood nearly all that was said and would think way ahead of us. I used to say that if she had been a human she would have been a university professor. If she ever would have given us any puppies, I think we would have kept each one - but she gave us none, she was one of a kind.

She is missed every day!  Crossfields will never be the same without her!

Stella at 5 weeks

7 weeks old

She loved people and everyone who came for a visit was greeted with a wagging tail.

When you are joyous, look deep into your heart, and you shall find it is only 

that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.

When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart, and you shall see 

that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

—Kahil Gibran

We have planted a Crabapple tree with her ashes.
