Ed O'Neill was "in love with" "Stella"

Beatrice was a part of the Good Dog Animals agency and according to her owners, she was very loved on the set of the ABC show. "Ed O’Neill is in love with her! It’s very easy working with him because he brings Beatrice treats like popcorn and always looks out for her," one of her owners Guin Solomon said. 

"We’ll be doing scenes in the backyard by the pool and in between takes he’ll say, ‘Would you please get Beatrice an umbrella, she’s in the sun!’" Guin continued.

The series finale of Modern Family is set to air on April 8th on ABC.
