My Stella, was actually my son's dog first. He had her from 8 weeks old to 11 weeks old. He couldn't keep her so she has been mine since then. He is in college in another state and doesn't get to see Stella that often. But when he comes.....Stella is sooooooooooo happy. They really don't forget. I would say spend as much time with Aries as you can. Sounds like you have a special place in her heart and she has a special place in yours!
