Jolene found Stella on the side of the road about a month ago, starving and scared, trying to hide in a ditch. When Jolene first brought the pup home, it became clear that Stella had never really been inside a house before. "Of course, I don't know this for certain," says Jolene, "but it seems rather likely, based on the way that she barked at herself in the TV, barked at herself in the mirror, barked at herself in the stove...yeah, she pretty much barked at anything shiny."
It's likely that the pineapple was one of the many objects that Stella had never interacted with before in her homeless state. Luckily, Jolene is there to be patient with Stella and guide her through the introductions to these new, seemingly scary objects.
Jolene beseeches the readers on her blog post to consider adopting dogs, and to spay or neuter the pets they do have. "Ultimately, that night I found Stella, she wasn't alone. Not really. There are a million more animals out there who still need someone. In fact, there's more than a million."
