Stella was born on August 24, 2016 at Labradoodle Corral near Hartford, Wisconsin. She's a "red" medium-tall Australian Labradoodle and weighs 50 pounds. She wakes up ready to go, always wagging her tail. She talks and bows and listens to every word. She is smarter than we are, and so agile and entertaining she could have been a circus dog dancing and balancing a ball on her nose. She runs like a gazelle, with Tiller always just a little behind her.

Tiller was born on Mother's Day, May 14, 2017 at Labradoodle Corral. He and Stella have been best friends from the moment he joined our family at 8 weeks old. He's a parti dog of black and brown with patches of white, 2" shorter than Stella but the same weight. He is very sweet and sincere with a comical side. He loves games and sneaks downstairs with an old slipper each morning to prance through the house playing catch me if you can.
