This is our Stella Rae. Stella Rae Sirabi Bear to be exact. She was born mid January 2011 and came to live with us on March 9 2011 just shy of her 8-week birthday. She already weighed in at about 20 pounds and grows by the second right before our eyes. Typical of a Newfoundland. We debated introducing her to our lives at this time due to having lost our precious Maggie Mae this past October and reaching a point where we are starting to calm down as our twins move into their college years. This little ball of chaotic energy is such a sweet blessing to our home. She brings such joy, even healing, to all of our hearts. Everyone who meets her breaks into a huge grin! Even some of the most grumpy people I know do! This gentle giant is just that…gentle and soon to be a giant!
