Dear Homeward Bound Team,
Tonight, a little black lab pup is sleeping in a crate near me as I write to you. You named her Stella, and we adopted her at the SPCA of Westchester. She is watched very closely by our cat, who is disgruntled by this new addition.
In the morning, my 6 year old daughter will wake up ready to play with her new puppy. We wanted a Lab for a while, but they are pretty hard to come by here in New York. Not like in TX where I grew up with Labs. Her days will be spent at my husband's office, where there are 4 other dogs and a big yard. When she is older, I'll take her for runs as I train for 5Ks. Summers will be spent with us in the Adirondack Mountains. She will hike up mountains, swim in lakes, and sleep in a tent when we go camping. She will be my daughter's constant companion and a loved family member.
We had a family vote, and decided to keep the name she came with. Thanks for sending her our way!
