Video: Stella’s Leaf Pile

It’s leaf-pile time across much of the country, and some dogs just love playing in the leaves. Stella can’t seem to get enough, as she dives in after her ball. Several commenters in this video wondered about the way Stella’s back legs seem to go out on her before she lies down. Her owner, Jody Hartman, responded, ” She is a perfectly healthy yellow lab with no medical issues at all. She has been tested for EIC, and her funny way of stopping is how she cools down on the grass.” (EIC is Exercise-induced collapse, a genetic syndrome predominantly found in Labs.)
