Stella the Labrador being eager about fall will get you just as excited for the season.
If you’ve been fantasizing about cardigans and pumpkin spice lattes since mid-summer, this fall-obsessed Dog that enjoys leaping in leaves may be your spirit animal.
It turns out that it’s not only us humans that enjoy the scary season; one canine known simply as Dog Named Stella to her followers appears to enjoy it just as much as we do, and she’s gone viral for her fall-loving activities.
Stella, a Golden Labrador, loves crunchy mounds of fall leaves. While her behavior isn’t unusual for a lab, she takes it to the next level by leaping into the largest mounds of dead vegetation you’ve ever seen, earning her the moniker “Queen of Leaves.”
With a go-pro, you can see her small tail wagging in anticipation of a huge leap into a fresh pile of dead leaves.
Her leaps into said heaps are nothing short of spectacular, despite the fact that she has some prior training, and she excitedly awaits the start of the season every year to accomplish her favorite hobby:
Stella has won gold medals at home for leaping into leaves, but she has also competed in professional jumping events with Dock Dogs, the world’s leading canine aquatics organization located in Ohio.
Stella, on the other hand, prefers hanging out in the mounds of fall fodder, camouflaging herself amid them and therefore appearing suspiciously like a mid-October version of Dani from the 2019 horror film Midsommar.
Stella is obviously famous on the Internet, as she has over 362K TikTok followers and her most popular YouTube video (below) has been seen 151K times.
Many of her followers wait all year to see her delight as the first leaves fall. Her most recent video montage for the first day of fall has many TikTokers pumped for the season – if only for more Stella material!
“This was the nicest thing I’ve seen on TikTok in weeks,” BugGirl adds, while sandracat0826 says, “Me beaming from ear to ear.” Thank you for devoting so much effort to this video. Absolutely fantastic!”
Stella, thank you for spreading so much joy toward the end of Summer – it was exactly what we needed!
