This story is about a Labrador doggo named Stella who lives in Maine and is world-famous for her leaf-jumping habits.
She’s been an Instagram favorite for years, who originally gained notoriety for something we all wish we could do right now – jump onto piles and piles of gorgeous fall leaves!
But don’t let this blast from the past make you feel sad or jealous because you’re stuck at home.
Stella has continued to shine past her 20 minutes of fame because the way she’s living her life to the fullest is hilariously unreal! So let’s go for a walkie and see just what she’s been up to!
Funny girls like this Stella chick is exactly what we all need to heal our deflated spirits right now.
Oh, and the cute kiddos in the picture? They’re just there for bonus health points. Because kids and puppies, you know!
Now that we’re all trying to be responsible by social distancing ourselves, frolicking around in the great outdoors is a big no-no.
We’re pretty much relegated to streaming nature flicks online if we want to remember what the sun and grass look like.
One day we’ll feel safe breathing fresh air again. In the meantime, there’s no harm in living vicariously through a happy leaf-loving doggo, who does nothing other than pounce onto unsuspecting piles of the crunchy stuff!
As mentioned before, Stella is famous for her annual ritual of sacrificing herself to the leaf gods. However, one of her most recently released video is a compilation of her best jumps ever!
And it couldn’t have come at a better time. Her owners probably suspected that we need more Stella in our lives.
You won’t be able to stop laughing at just how much fun she’s having. Sometimes Stella is really excited, and she pile drives right into the leaves at a thousand miles an hour.
Other times she patiently waits until she’s told that it’s okay to go ahead and do her crazy, awesome thing, all while wearing that heart-melting, silly grin of hers.
Then there are the times when Stella is so impatient, she won’t even wait for dad to stop building the pile-o-fun before she’s all up in it.
She would be a bad girl for doing that, if she weren’t so hilariously good!
But, no matter what method Stella uses to time her leaf attacks, none of it compares to her dressing up in one of her favorite doggy cosplay costumes, like the butterfly wings she seems to favor.
Because duh, you can’t be a pretty blonde girl and expect to be seen in public without having at least a dozen different outfits to show off.
Watching her as she bounds through the air and lands in the big bonfire-like pile of fluff is so incredibly funny!
It might even make you want to rake your neighbors yard, so you can collect enough leaves to make your own mound of fun.
Yep, instead of having to get their kid to rake the yard as part of their chores, you can easily convince your neighbor that you want to do it for free! Or better yet, buy it off of them for a dollar a pound, cause that stuff weighs nothing – when dry.
So, whenever you’re having a bad day about all this self-quarantine business, or time seems to stretch on and on because you don’t know what to do with yourself, there is a cure for all the boredom.
Forget yoga or meditation or all that inner reflection everyone is telling you to do. Just put this video of Stella on replay, kick back with some popcorn and a beer, and enjoy your damn self!
