I have not posted in quite some time. Bella is now a little over a year old. Where did the time go? She is still a joy to all of us. I believe she is about 5.5 lbs now full grown. She still loves to play and run fast circles around all of us! She is really funny! She also likes to try to play with my daughter's pet rats. She likes to lick them, though I have not figured out if she wants to eat them or just play with them. She has finally mastered the sit command, the down command, and can shake! This is amazing for her :) She also likes to go on 2 mile walks. Well, I guess that is all the update for now!


15 wks old

Bella is now 15 wks old and a whole 2lbs 8oz = 2.5lbs! I can't believe we have had her for 3.5 wks now!! She is such a wonderful puppy. I can't imagine life without her. Her personality has really been coming out the last few weeks. She loves to play. Her favorite game is playing fetch! So cute!

I am always amazed with how she behaves with my almost 6yr old. She is so patient and loving with her. As most may know, this age can be a bit overbearing at times but she does great. Bella also loves to sit in my lap while I'm at the computer. She definately does not like to be left alone.

Bella also has been going everywhere with us! She has met so many people. Her new friends are Katy and Vicky at the ice rink! Bella loves them because they play with her everytime she is at the rink during Madison's skating lessons. She loves all the skaters as well. Bella has been nominated as the Skating Club of Oregon's mascot. :)

Bella's puppy class is going well. She can now sit on command most of the time. She is learning down, which is not going well. She has learned her name and will come when called. Loose leash walking is the topic for next week which will be interesting. Bella likes to be carried, not walked on a leash, lol.

Bella loves to play with other puppies, so if you know of any playgroups in the Portland,OR area please send us an email. We would love to get involved in some.


Bella's Update

We have been so busy with little Bella. She will be 13wks old tomorrow! We have had her a little over a week now. She goes almost everywhere with us. Bella loves to ride in the car in her carseat. She also loves to go in her bag wherever we go!

Bella is also very smart. She figured out how to climb over her baby gate the first day I left her alone. When I came home, I was very suprised to see her at the top of the stairs. She now has figured out how to run up and down the stairs too.

Bella had her first vet appointment this past Friday. She is a 2lbs 5oz now! She is very healthy! She goes back in 2wks for some mores shots. Bella also started her puppy class yesterday. She was so cute! The puppies were supposed to be learning how to sit. That was funny. Bella kept hopping on her back legs. She was cute though :)

Lastly, Bella is such a joy!! She loves to play! She is so funny to watch and is such a cuddler. We are so glad that we have her :)
