   Leave a bone for Stella

Stell-bell, Stellaluna, Stella-tosis (really, it's bad)

Quick Bio:

Me. Her JRT boyfriend Gus, who's loved her since she was a pup. Sniffing. Snurfling through the garbage. Eating garbage. Surveying the street from my office window. Sleeping behind my knees. Stuffed prey to drag and chase. Bellyrubs. Food. Food. Food.

Snowball, the mean cat who lives next door. Being alone. When I clean out her stash of licked-clean containers and gnawed underwear. The current administration.

Favorite Toy:
Mini sock-monkey. Rope monkey. Stuffed owl. Stuffed bunny. Stuffed squirrel. Hello Kitty. Things pulled from the trash.

Favorite Food:
Mmmm, nutritional gravy supplement. Mmmm, dinner at Gus and Bruno's house.

Favorite Walk:
Dolores! Funston! Bernal Hill! Tower Video! Anywhere other dogs have peed!

Arrival Story:
Shortly after 9/11 my parents came out from Nebraska for a visit. When I got to the airport, my dad was waiting by the baggage claim at the oakland airport. My mom was behind him, ringed by a crowd of people, with a huge (and slightly unhinged) grin on her face. In her arms was a tiny chihuahua puppy. "Happy birthday!" she called out and held up the dog. She'd found her in a pet store the day before and--having poor impulse control, as well as 5 chihuahuas of her own--she decided to bring her to me. The crowd waiting behind her was most of the passengers from their flight, including the pilot--all eager to see my reaction to the new dog. That night, at a dinner party at Betsy's house, Gus the Jack Russell caught one whiff and fell snout over tail in love. But really, I got there first, and now she's Stella, my truest heart.

Stella is a good sleeper, a fierce protector, and a stealthy french-kisser.
