Shown above on her way home with her new Mum, Virginia, "Stella" lives in the Sydney area along with "Rosie" (GraeShadow Distinction), a grand daughter of our Paco.


Her pedigree name, Sashas Joy, is in memory of Virginia's much beloved old girl "Sasha", who sadly passed away in September, 2008.


Thanks to Virginia, lots of more recent pictures of Stella and Rosie are shown below.


First we have Stella and Rosie posing for their lovely Christmas 2016 card.

around the time of Stella’s 8th Birthday.

Speaking of Birthdays, on 16 September 2010 Stella celebrated her 2nd Birthday with Virginia and Rosie. Virginia reports that Stella’s Birthday presents included a new reflective harness, a rope ball, a brain teaser ball and a BPA free bottle for the park. Some pictures taken on the day are shown below.
