Uncle Michael's dear Stella passed away in April. Is was sudden and sad for everyone near to them.
She is buried in our woods and still very deeply missed. She was good - Michael's companion and friend. Loyal to and protective of him. The best version of a dog. One that has been around the world with him and back again. One that can probably never be truly replaced.
The girls made her headstones and still wander out to the woods to see how she's doing.
