In the autumn, Maine becomes a beautiful world of colors. And with so many trees, the ground is quickly covered in a layer of dead leaves, perfect for piling up and jumping into!
This opportunity is not lost on Stella, a golden retriever with her own Instagram account, whose owners have been posting videos of her jumping into leaf-piles since 2014. This year was no different—as soon as the car door opens, Stella barrels right for her beloved pile of leaves.
It seems the more piles of leaves Stella jumps into, the more she likes it.
But what does Stella do once she’s in the leaves?
Here’s the answer: whatever the heck she wants.
It seems Stella’s owners enjoy her leaf-adventures almost as much as Stella does.
Stella is the Autumn hero we all need right now.
The internet loved Stella and thought she was a VERY GOOD DOG.
I’m just gonna leave this li’l 8-second Instagram video of Dog Named Stella right here to get your Sunday started off right. TBH, I have the exact same reaction when I see a pile of leaves. https://t.co/jsdxzX42uR #sundaymorning #SundayFunday

That video of a yellow lab jumping into a pile of leaves that's all over your timeline? That's Stella, who belongs to a former co-worker at @GilletteStadium!
She's very much worth a follow on Instagram: dognamedstella https://t.co/JXfJPtkLlK

Stella discovered the secret to success: doing what you love!
I checked Stella's insta, and she runs into the pile of leaves a lot! Sometimes in costume!https://t.co/M5tMv7Plrp

Halftime + pile of leaves on pitch + Stella = profit

Unbeknownst to anyone, this was only the beginning of the story, for that pile of leaves was no ordinary pile of leaves. It was actually a form of life not yet encountered…….THE NORTH AMERICAN LEAF MONSTER.
This day, Stella ( The Dog ) became a legendary hero.
