Arrival Story: We picked Bella from a litter of 4. Picked her up at 7 wks. Had no clue that she would come to be so important to our lives.
Bio: Bella has pretty markings and a slim body. Her face is flat and she has only one tiny spot of brindle on her. She has had health problems that I believe are related to her breeding. I didn't know to ask for a health certificate when we bought her. She started having problems with her ears getting infected and having yeast on her feet and in her ears. It started very early. By the time she was 9 mos old she had Red Mange. Poor Bella has had many trips to the Vet. In spite of it all, she is doing very well at 16 mos old. She is so sweet to other dogs. No matter what dog I bring home (I am in rescue) Bella greats them with a happy welcome. She is so loving to dogs and people. Bella has personality plus. She really is a sweet girl. I will NEVER buy a dog again but Bella would likely have been homeless because of her constant medical problems. She was sent to be with us because we love her so much we would spend out last penny to help her........and probably will! We love her.
Wow! I am Dogster Dog of the Week. That's a first for me. It's an honor too.
I have been a Dogster girl since I was young. I guess I lived my life as a Dogster girl. I'm older now and having problems. So many years of allergies and steroids for my bad skin have left me almost blind. I still see light and figures moving but that's all. I know my house. I don't remember living anywhere else so I know where everything is. I follow the wall when I feel unsure. Mom always makes sure I get a treat when she hands them out. I don't even try to find one. She brings it right to me no matter what. I do OK. I do get kind of upset with the puppy we have now. Zacchaeus is a sweet baby but I am not into babies.
I am happy and loved and that is most important. I know I will be here till I cross the bridge. I miss my brother so much. I know if he was still here he would make sure I had him to guide me. Oh how I miss Buddy. He was just the best brother. I will see him when I cross the bridge. That is something to look forward to. I know he is happy I was chosen Dogster Dog of the week. I am.
I am slowly loosing my sight. I am doing well though. Mom says that the older you get the more parts of your body ware out. That's not fun. She says I am like her. I am a SENIOR and should expect life to change. She also said she and dad will love me as long as I live. Becki is almost 100% blind but they take care of her and I know they will care for me and love me till I go to the bridge. I will just take it as it comes. My vet said I culd go to the big animal school and get surgery. It would be $2,400.00
Well Buddy is not really home. His askes are home. Mom and Dad went to pick up a pretty little box with my brother's ashes in it yesterday. Mom and Dad were very quiet all day about the box. They brought home a cute little Poodle the same size as Puffin. Then Ms Lisa came to get him. Mom said she is fostering him. He and Puffin had fun while he was here. He will be fine.
Mom had a talk with me last night. She explained to me about cremation and why humans do that. I don't think Buddy would mind. I know he is not really in that box. Poor Cookie and Heidi think Buddy is in the little box. I am going to talk to them and all the dogs and explain to tham. I can look on the entertainment center anytime now and know part of Buddy is here with us. It's kind of neat. I think I want Mom to do that for me too when my time comes.
