Achilles and Stella greeted me at the gate yesterday. Achilles has greeted me nearly every day for over nine years, Stella for over twelve. I am so blessed to have shared life with them.
I have heard that you get the dog you need, whether you are conscious of it or not. I needed Stella’s drive, energy, need for leadership and for a job. I needed Achilles’s gentleness, sweetness, and eagerness to please. All these years along, I still need them. How lucky to have found and to still have them!
