Arrival Story: Dante/Parker/Tucker/Bogey's Mom and Dad work for a rescue and urgently needed to find a home for this little girl. She was going to be tossed aside without being given a chance to be happy with her own family. We had been thinking about rescuing a dog and decided we couldn't not help this girl. 1 week later here she is!
Bio: Belle had no home, no toys, no one to love her. She didn't even have a name. The man who saved her from a very uncertain future called her Jezzabelle. We decided to shorten it to Belle because we already have Jazzy-girl (officially Princess Jazzmine) and why not another Disney Princess. So from "Beauty and the Beast" this is our Belle, the beauty, so I guess that makes D-Day "the Beast"!
Forums Motto: just your average sweet loveable girl!
I finally got a little alone tIme with my mom this weekend. Our girl's time together has been cut in half since piddle pants moved in. Mommy took me, and just me :0) to a "My dog can do that" game day. Some of my old pals from class were there and I even made some new friends. This 4 month old little rottie boy really enjoyed jumping all over my head...go figure!
We all got split up into 4 groups and then each group took turns at the board. The other dogs on my team saw me warming up and said "thank Dog she's on our team!" (hehe) A little girl helped us roll the dice to move the spaces on the board and then we had to pull a card with a behavior on it. I had to go thru mom's legs in a figure 8 then we both had to lay down (London bridge is falling down) , sit and stay while mom bounced a ball (boy that was a toughie) I even had to lay down with a cookie between my paws and wait for the "okay" to take it!!. I guess all that time in class really paid off cuz this was like taking milkbones from a pup. I was like "is that all you got? C'mon! bring it!!"
Our team was in the lead but the competion was breathing down our necks! After the last round we were in a tie with these really long haired fuzzy dogs so we had to have a tie-breaker! ahhhhhhh! Now I'm good at breaking stuff but I wasn't sure if that would work here.
The rest of the peeps lined up and we all had to zig-zag thru them and not pull on or leash or leave our mom's side... no foodies lure allowed!! shhhh, don't tell but my mom was sweatin' this a little. HAH! low and behold to her surprise...that's right, I aced it. Unfortunately the little pup on our team was a little too curious and wanted to play with all the down the line. He was so cute though so you couldn't be mad. I didn't care that we came in second I was just happy to spend some alone time with mom. I lubs her and I think I really made her proud.
I lubs my Nana, you've all seen pictures with me and her right? Well, it seems I gots another one...cept this one is called Grandma! She's Daddy's momma and came all the way from New Mexico to meet me...and see the skin pups I guess.
She came to my house so I sniffed her and stole her tissues. She asked for them back so I said OK. She thinks I'm funny and keeps calling me "he" and stuff...last time I checked nuthin' new grew down there and I'm still pretty but it's okay she's a senior.
She doesn't cuddle and scritch my ears as good as my nana but she does have some sweet smelling leather moccasins. I grabbed one of them bad boys after I licked her footie for a while. I found out that Grandma likes to play tug! YAHOO!! Mom ruined our fun by saying "drop it" but I got a nice bone to chew on.
I think I like this Grandma, I heard her say I'm the best one of all and she doesn't believe any of the stories daddy told her about me when I was little. I guess I truely am unbelievable!!
Oops! gotta go! lunchtime for the humans! I can't wait to see if she uh "drops" some foodies accidentalike from the table!
