Who can resist this smile? Say hello to Stella, this week's Humane Society of West Alabama pet of the week! Stella is a happy 1-year-old female Boxer/Labrador mix. She has a boxer-like body, being shorter and thick, has a shorter tail than a lab, and has 
a boxer-like muzzle. But something else is in there as well, so we are guessing lab.

Understanding is a huge word that can be applied liberally in all areas of life. So, do we know what understanding is? Do we get it confused with acceptance?
