‘Stella helped me lose 6st!’
Pet’s name: Stella.
Breed: Border Collie.
Owner: Phil Lewis, 35, from Tonypandy in the Rhondda. Owner’s story: Phil said: “I have had Stella since she was about six months old.
“She has been with me through thick and thin.
“Mainly as I was a lot bigger when I first had her, and now thanks to the two walks a day, I’ve managed to lose over six stone in weight.
“She loves her walkies and playing with her toys.
“She will do anything for a treat, well I say anything, but she still hasn’t managed to hoover the house for me yet.
“I think that she is the best dog and friend I’ve ever had.
“She loves to play with the other dogs we’ve met.
“She is more than a pet, she is a true friend.
“One thing I know is that she loves the Christmas season as we give each other presents.
“Normally I will get her a stocking with toys and treats in and her present to me is her love and cwtches.”
