JUANA: It was a very cold morning and we had a full crew. We started off with a picture of momma Daisy. She was playing with a little bone and all of her babies were inside in the shelter, because it was so cold that morning. They hadn’t been going out by themselves yet, but now they do.
BILL: Did she just leave Stella out there in the parking lot?
JUANA: Yes, and poor Stella was wondering what happened. It was so very sad. Stella has a lot of problems, because she’s very strong and she doesn’t like other dogs. Sometimes she sort of bites our crew. We aren’t trainers, but we try to work with her. Sometimes our crewmembers are frightened of her, but Stella loves Shelby.
BILL: Marshall nibbles. Does Stella nibble?
JUANA: No, Stella bites. She’s never bitten me. I only see her in the park and she’s fine in the park. Everybody has had that problem with her. She doesn’t even know when she’s going to bite. I try to tell everybody to be very careful.
BILL: Is she like Patches?
JUANA: No, I don’t think she would go crazy. We are trying to train her and we are working with her. Shelby is really trying to help her. She will let the kennel crew in and lets them work in her kennel, but you can’t play with her. She gets overexcited and she doesn’t know how to show love, except to bite. We really need to train her for her sake.
BILL: She mustn’t have been with her litter long enough or her mother never taught her.
